Book reviews for Radiant: How to Have All the Energy You Need to Live a Life You Love


“Radiant is an excellent book not only for the author’s honesty but also for the incredible topics and wisdom laced throughout. In my opinion, Radiant is a profound well-being book that will challenge readers to make them think about their own habits and spark a change. This is incredibly important and Iris van Ooyen accomplishes this with ease in her book as from beginning to end, she captivates her readers and keeps them hooked with her wonderful advice but also sensational literature that is full of passion. …

Radiant is an inspirational, informative, and outstanding self-help/well-being book that will be perfect for those who are looking to live healthier lives with more energy!” — Aimee Ann

“This book was an exciting surprise. I was interested in what the author had to say about self-care and personal energy management, but since I didn’t think I was her target audience, I wasn’t expecting to be so impressed. I would not hesitate to recommend the book to anyone who wants to learn how to do a better job of self-care and managing their energy level in different environments. …

A book that will help you understand yourself better and make you a more compassionate advocate for your own well-being.” — Elizabeth Cottrell
