A Model for Living is a practical guide to modern life and relationships. Julian Short draws upon over 30 years experience as a psychiatrist to offer hints, tips and guidelines for coping with many of the problems that we face every day. In a simple, no-nonsense style he shows you how to:

*Cope with rejection. How to deal with being dumped or being turned down for a job.
* Improve self-esteem. Learn to feel better about yourself and gain the admiration of others.
* Win every argument - even when you lose. A simple strategy for making sure you walk away from any dispute feeling great.
* Deal with family relationships. Whether you are a parent trying to get on with your children or a teenager whose mum and dad don't understand you.

A Model for Living has advice and tips that really help, and they are all easy to introduce into your daily life.

The international model agencies Premier and Storm both use A Model for Living when advising new models and their families. The book's tips for handling rejection and improving self-esteem have proved ideal grounding for young women and men embarking on a career in the demanding world of fashion. Carol White and Sarah Doukas, MDs of Premier and Storm, have written an introduction to the book explaining why it is such a useful tool for anyone - not just gorgeous models! - trying to make sense of modern life.
