In LIFE: Things to Get You By, Marcia Hines delivers a highly motivating insight into her philosophical ideas and perspectives that have helped her to “get by and get by well”.

‘When it was suggested to me that I write a book about my life, the obvious thing
to do was pen a memoir of sorts. I kicked this around for a while and realised that the concept just didn’t sit well with me. Instead, I pondered, what if I did something different? What if I did something that expressed what was important to me, something I thought might be relevant and useful to someone else? What if I could share the key things that have made a difference in my life so far so that someone else might benefi t from the lessons I have learned? And then, it came to me
– a question, in my mother’s words, that I really wanted to answer: what are the things that get me by?’

According to Marcia, wisdom that isn’t shared is knowledge wasted and in this book, the Boston born musician tells how she has survived the challenges and obstacles that she inevitably faced on her journey to stardom.

Spanning her illustrious career, LIFE: Things to Get You By brings you the very best of Marcia Hines. In her own words, Marcia tells how she has achieved peace, success, happiness, and a quiet wisdom – and suggests how you can too!
