Excited to announce that my new book is out now! It's currently riding high in the charts, as Amazon's #1 hot new release in feminist criticism, psychology & emotions. You can order it here or find out more below...


It's called Letting Go: How to Heal Your Hurt, Love Your Body and Transform Your Life and here's what some of the critics have been saying...

‘A practical and heartfelt guide to healing for anyone who has suffered from low self-esteem, a lack of confidence, or disordered eating. Woolf writes with intelligence, wisdom and compassion for a generation of women battling an enduring media onslaught of perfectionism. The fightback continues.’
Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett, The Vagenda

‘Psychology, philosophy and personal growth marvellously rolled into one, Letting Go is a must-read. This book shows us how to develop inner confidence, open new doors, and rediscover joy and meaning in our lives.’
Deanne Jade, psychologist and founder of the National Centre For Eating Disorders

‘Letting Go is not about giving up, but about letting freedom in. This brave and personal account shows us that the path to true liberation is through embracing our true selves, however flawed we fear they might be.’
Sally Brampton, author of Shoot the Damn Dog and columnist for Top Santé and Psychologies

‘A timely reminder that though we may take ourselves for granted at times, self-care is a divine responsibility. In Woolf’s intimately personal yet relatable voice, Letting Go empowers us to accept both the role of wounded and healer.’
Caroline Kent, Telegraph journalist

‘Gutsy and engaging, Letting Go combines research and real-life advice on fulfilling your inner potential and building self-belief... Woolf’s latest book is highly recommended.’
Tim Weeks, Olympic trainer

‘Emma Woolf is the voice of friendly sanity; she is the warm, assured hand that reaches out and grasps yours. A wonderfully helpful book.’
Kate Long, author of The Bad Mother’s Handbook

Exploring the issues of love, loss, healing and happiness, this manifesto for freedom from one of feminism’s liveliest voices will guide you on the path to feeling newly, truly confident. Life doesn’t need to be a struggle. Letting go is the strongest thing I’ve ever done…


  1. Emma, when will this book be available in the United States?

  2. Hi Alyssa, thanks for your message. 'Letting Go' is not currently published in the US (although both Apple and Ministry are). Maybe you can order it through the UK site Thanks, Emma xx

  3. Thank you for the response! I have read Apple and Ministry cover to cover on my kindle and ordered them both as a hard copy for my shelf. I will be sure to see if I can order through amazon.UK! Also, a random statemenr...sometimes on my kindle home page, famous writers from old times pop up. Today (and several other times), it was your great aunt Virginia!

  4. How lovely, thanks dear Alyssa. I hope you manage to order Letting Go - if not, a good excuse for a trip to the UK :-)
    Take care & stay in touch.
    Emma xx

  5. Hi Emma! I have to write again to tell you that literally within the last 24 hours, a copy of 'Letting Go' was posted for sale on Amazon US! I bought it and it should be on its way tomorrow. :) Looking forward to reading it - I breezed through your other books in no time because I simply could not put them down.
