    Based on seven years of ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we're all in this together.

    Story
    Would you listen to I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t) again? Why?

    I will most certainly listen again for the insight and information. But the narration should've been done by the author.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The story-like writing style


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She did fine; I've just heard the author in interviews and I prefer the timbre of her voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Towards the end the author begins discussing her new research with men. While women seem to be caught in a web she finds that men are put in a box and punished when they try to escape. It reminded me of when my little brother started getting teased and bullied when he got too old (7 or 8 years old) not to stay in the box. Broke my heart again.
