ABOUT THE BOOK – THE PARLAY EFFECT
In her new book, The Parlay Effect: How Female Connection Can Change the World, Anne Devereux-Mills uses her insights as Founder of Parlay House to show how small actions can create a cascade of positive experiences and change and lead to a boost in self-awareness, confidence, and vision.
With real-life stories and scientific research — backed by a study on “the Parlay Effect” with Dr. Serena Chen, a professor of social psychology at the University of California at Berkeley — The Parlay Effect offers a blueprint for reframing relationships, feeling more empowered, and building positive communities with multiplying effects.
