    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Gifts of Imperfection to be better than the print version?

    I still haven't read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Me!


    What three words best describe Lauren Fortgang’s performance?

    Annoying, whistling, sibilant.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The author's ideas are really insightful and could be life changing if you are up to it. But you must be a little patient with the narrator. To be fair, maybe it's not the narrator, but the sound mixing that made it way too annoyingly sibilant.
