Description

“An encouraging work that will provide hope to those living with chronic conditions.” — Kirkus

“If you have an invisible illness or know someone who does—Living Human is a must read...This book is jam packed with everything you need to reclaim your life.” — Jacinta Parsons, ABC Radio Broadcaster & Author of Unseen

“Flic has turned trauma into her superpower and inspires anyone going through any pain that they too can win at their game." — Fred Schebesta: Founder of Finder, Author of Go Live, AFR Young Rich Lister


My deepest wish is that reading this book will inspire you to take a look at your human experience and see it for the beautiful, painful blessing that it is. Whether you face illness and pain or you want to build a scalable business, you have the power to do it no matter what life throws at you by doing it your perfectly imperfect way, with your perfectly imperfect body and mind.

Flic Manning has lived a life that is anything but traditional. With the odds stacked against her, facing incurable invisible diseases and mental health issues, she has walked the path less traveled to embrace the power she believes we all have inside no matter what complexities we face.

In this wellness memoir, Flic takes us through her deeply personal journey, from struggling with pain and illness as a dancer to finding her voice and stepping into her most human, raw, and powerful self as an entrepreneur and wellness advocate. Her story contains nuggets of wellness and mindset wisdom wrapped up in lessons from her journey that are sometimes dark, other times deeply funny, and always inspiring. You will be uplifted, but you will also discover the sustainable wellness steps you can take to make your life a profound and healthy one.

I received an advance copy of, Living Human, by Flic Manning. This is a great book on being gentle with yourself, and taking care of yourself. Mind, body,and soul.

I enjoy this book. It’s sort of part memoir and part self-help. Flic Manning uses so many things to cope with her chronic illness. Recommend to anyone, especially with chronic illness or other things.

An incredibly inspiring journey through the author’s chronic illness. Living Human is told with unflinching honesty, highlighting the lesser known effects of chronic illness and the difficulties on what it’s like living with an invisible illness. Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and author, for a chance to read and review this book!

A deeply challenging examination of life with chronic illness. I honestly don't think anyone could read this book without being touched at a deep level. Recommended.
