Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First book in the journey home This book, and the two following, is about being the best you can be without referring to others for acceptance... I am deep in Brene Browns' online course and she often references this book... it is a supportive book and inspires us to look at our past, briefly... embrace our improvable present and face the future unafraid... I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a way to change their future as they heal from their past.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Might Just Be Me :) As I write this review I will admit that I am only half way through the book, but that is part and parcel as to why I felt I should write. I am certainly one always open to a self help....and the title and recommendation from a friend is really what drove my acquisition of this book. The first chapter....amazing!!! .... It spoke volumes to what I was feeling....but as I have progressed into the middle of the book, it's really been a very wonderfully executed piece of work. The author has done extensive research into the topic and has quite a lot of substantiating resources for her work. That is, unfortunately, where she has lost me. I have lost a bit of the appeal into the help for myself and feel a bit lost in the research and applicability of that in a science sense.... My conclusion is that my feelings around this topic are not deep seeded enough for the book and I would highly recommend this to people who are seriously dealing with the issues she has addressed, however, for myself, I have recognized from the readings, that this is not an issue that I need to go deep with. So on that note, highly recommended for therapeutic and self help purposes for those that are struggling, and I felt the exploration of this topic was of great benefit for myself to gauge the depth of my emotions around this topic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for every woman I found this to be a practical guide that was presented clearly and easy to understand. If you struggle with anxiety, depression or lack self esteem, this book is for you. Brene Brown, an expert in the Social Work field has studied every aspect of what causes us to experience shame and gives us the tools to address that shame in a healthy, positive manner. I found this book to be one I had a hard time putting down because in each paragraph I read, I could see myself. Definitely a must read.
