Have you ever wanted to live a life that is a little less stressful? A little less expensive? A little happier?

‘The Yi Book’ written by a successful young entrepreneur & author Eileen Tan, contains 72 Pages of Easy Step-By-Step that can help you Get More Out of Your Life With Less Stuff!

Should there be a comma after "book"?

Thanks.

I think there should be a comma as "written by a successful young entrepreneur & author Eileen Tan" is a nonrestrictive participial phrase.

If it were "‘A book written recently by a successful young entrepreneur & author Eileen Tan contains 72 Pages...", you wouldn't need commas.

I agree — there should be a comma there, as Helenej has explained.

Also, there is an extra article ("a") after "written by". It should be "written by successful young entrepreneur & author Eileen Tan".

 (or  "written by a successful young entrepreneur & author named Eileen Tan")
