Product Details


“It doesn’t cost us anything to let others be freely themselves, rather it is an invitation to us all to live more fully. Jeffrey is a light that inspires inclusion and freedom to be…just as we are.”
—Hilaria Baldwin, actress and entrepreneur, co-founder of Yoga Vida, and author of The Living Clearly Method
“I wish I had been friends with Jeffrey when they were growing up to give their beautiful soul a confidant. Their story feels universal, and deeply personal. Take Your Own Advice should be required reading for anyone who learned to sacrifice their own happiness to keep others happy.”
—Meredith Salenger, actress and activist
“At a time when ‘self-care’ can mean many things, Jeffrey Marsh’s heartfelt memoir is a guide to self-love for the everyperson. And their story — one powered by audacity, truth and kindness — empowers us to be just as as assured and authentic as we are.” 
—Tre’vell Anderson, author of We See Each Other: A Black, Trans Journey Through TV and Film
“Jeffrey Marsh went deep into the heart of their difficult childhood and they have emerged with a book of joy and triumph. Every activist needs to read this. If you give and give and can’t see the light sometimes, let Jeffrey comfort you, and inspire you to Take Your Own Advice.”
Alyssa Milano, actress, activist, and author of Sorry Not Sorry
“Jeffrey Marsh’s moving memoir takes a rough childhood and spins it into self-worth and magic. Jeffrey has given the world a treasure of a book filled with kindness, insight, and love.”
Busy Phillips, actress and activist, and author of This Will Only Hurt a Little
“A brilliant, engaging story that lovingly invites you to rediscover your value… For Jeffrey, despite a painful past, self-determination and kindness triumph.”
Alexandra Billings, actress and LGBTQ activist, and author of This Time for Me
“The only thing more beautiful than Jeffrey’s story is Jeffrey themself. They are the nonbinary vision, the glorious gender nonconforming voice, that this broken world needs right now. Take my advice: buy this book and give it to everyone you love.”
Jacob Tobia, bestselling author of Sissy
