Summer Reads: Self-Improvement is Trending as Summer 2021 Approaches

Hollywood Endings

Summer is here. As we enter into a post-pandemic world, there is a new trend echoing across the globe as people emerge from their quarantine hibernation: self-improvement.

“Many people who have had the time to ponder their lives during quarantine in 2020 are now seeking out ways to better themselves,” says Linda Flanders, author of Hollywood Endings, a book that challenges people to ask themselves who they are and become the person they want to be.

“This is a question that people all over the world have asked themselves over the last year. Fortunately, becoming the person you truly want to be is a process that anyone can learn with a few Hollywood-style tricks and glamor.”

Hollywood Endings uses the science of imagination, intention, self-awareness, the movies for fun, and the Feldenkrais Method for speed. It celebrates the wonder of the movies and urges us to see movies once to be entertained, and then return to see them again to learn from them. There are movies to see and a workbook at the end of each chapter. This book can show you how with life lessons from Dances With Wolves, National Velvet, Die Hard, and The Color Purple.

For anyone who has ever dreamed of having a Hollywood Ending lifestyle, this book is for you. Rewrite your own story and give it a Hollywood ending.

“Innovative and stimulating…a source of inspiration for self-discovery, healing and growth.”
Birgit Wolz, Ph.D., Individual and Family Therapist,

About the Author

Linda Flanders has always been motivated to protect and serve. The first part of her life, that meant a career as a police detective in San Francisco specializing in child sex abuse. The sheer volume of victims that later became perpetrators showed her something was missing. After 17 years on the force, she moved back to the Midwest and spent 15 years developing a violence prevention program for children who didn’t respond to traditional treatments and were headed into the justice system. Her behavior program is based on principles of the Feldenkrais Method and “the movies.” She’s been a Feldenkrais Practitioner for 30 years.

Linda lives in a small town in Minnesota with Rosie, her blind and deaf Cocker Spaniel, who still loves to play catch and rip paper to shreds! She hopes to reach people who’ve never had a role model and had to raise themselves. Her self-help book is designed to steer people to happier, more fulfilling lives.
