    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?

    Story
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I *LOVE* the topic- the idea to let go of perfection would be so healing for our society to embrace it.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Yes!


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Yes- mostly written to get the point across- sometimes I felt like she was plugging her other material but I suppose that's normal.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I didn't click with the narrator. She sounds fake. I think I would have preferred to READ it but I didn't have that option at the time (in the car). The subject importance far outweighs any drawbacks from the narrator.
