Can I Say No?: One Woman's Battle with a Small Word


Add your own review!

Overview

A humorous, irreverent look at how we've lost the ability to say no and how, by reacquainting ourselves with this two letter word, we can go on to live happier, less stressful and more fulfilling lives. From saying no to hen parties and weddings, to demands at work and family obligations, to toxic behaviour and friends, to saying no within the context of consent and those instances in history when people came together to say no, CAN I SAY NO? is a timely, no-holds-barred insightful examination of the power of this one small word - which can be a full sentence.

Reviews

'What Stefanie Preissner captures so beautifully is that our value and worth are not tied to being agreeable and saying yes to everything that's asked of us. As she shows, we'll be much more likely to succeed on our own terms when we set boundaries and clear priorities.' Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global - Arianna Huffington


Author Information

Stefanie Preissner, Munich-born but Mallow-raised, is the creator of hit comedy-drama series Can't Cope, Won't Cope. The show was originally commissioned by RTE but since then both seasons have been broadcast on BBC and acquired by Netflix. Why Can't Everything Just Stay the Same?, her first book (published in 2017), was an Irish bestseller and nominated for an Irish Book Award. Can I Say No? is her second book. She has also produced a series of short documentaries, How To Adult, with RTE Player. Her one-woman theatre show, Solpadeine Is My Boyfriend, enjoyed sell-out runs in Dublin before touring internationally to Bucharest, Edinburgh and Australia, and - as a radio play - it became RTE's most downloaded podcast. Stefanie graduated from University College Cork with a BA in Drama and Theatre Studies and Spanish. Alongside her career as a screenwriter and playwright, she has won several awards as an actor. She is a regular contributor to Ireland's Sunday Independent newspaper and her voice is well-recognised from her prolific voiceover career. She is currently working more projects than she can cope with due to her ongoing battle with people pleasing. She lives in Dublin and on Instagram @stefaniepreissner
