My therapist recommended this author to me, and I borrowed this book from our library (and have 2 others on hold.) However, I'm about to click on the Amazon link at the top of SI and order it.

A-MA-ZING

Not at all about infidelity, but definitely about some of the things that stop us from living an authentic life. I feel badly that I have folded over so many corners in a library book, but it was that or get out the highlighter, and I was not about to do that!

Among other things, I am really enjoying the way she talks about being authentic, belonging, why setting boundaries is so critical, and how to practice self-compassion.

Has anyone else read this book and liked it? It seems to be really striking a nerve with me in a positive way.

Brown is wonderful. You would like Daring Greatly, too. It's about vulnerability and how shame impacts our willingness to be vulnerable.

We just watched a TED Talk of hers for work! Hopefully I'm allowed to post this video in the book club!

I've seen it. Great, isn't it?

I just mentioned her TED talks in another thread today. :) Isn't she wonderful? I haven't read the books. I'll definitely look into it.

I'm halfway through this book. It's very good. I placed a hold on Daring Greatly at my library too.
