This book is very revealing, highlighting the challenges we face in relationships, health, work and money. A wonderful book that distills pearls of wisdom with simple and effective approach towards being the YOU we always wanted to be!

I have known Brenda for a few years and have come to recognize and admire her for consistently reaching new heights and being a great role model for others to take risks and take that road less traveled.  She has written a wonderful piece here, full of anecdotes, stories and life experiences which will evidently cause shifts in many lives. This book is a great testimony to the challenges she faced as a kid and how she weathered all of them to eventually turn out into the lovely person that

she is. Congrats Brenda!!

She breaks material into short, easily comprehensible chunks designed to push the reader to swiftly deepen personal understanding while revealing the tremendous power individuals actually wield in determining their own health, wealth and personal happiness. Inspiring and empowering, great to the last page.

Brenda is a wonderful teacher, and this book communicates many important life-changing lessons for those who are looking for happiness and completion. Regain Your Power covers all the major emotional challenges that we go through in life, and offers explanations and uplifting messages meant to clear emotional blockage(s) of the reader. Brenda also includes exercises for the reader to go within for a journey of self discovery. This is a concise life manual, I wish I could have read this 20 years ago!

Being somebody who has transformed myself from an oft-bullied wallflower in school to a professional speaker and coach, I can attest to the saying that we must first do the inner work necessary to change ourselves first, and Brenda Tan was able to bring this message masterfully to readers through her simple yet heart-centric style of writing.  Everyone of us can relate to the relevant anecdotes and powerful lessons shared vicariously through the stories of others.   A must-read for anyone who wants to improve his/her quality of life!
