    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.

    Kari says: "Love the book, not the narrator"
    "Love the content, not so much the person reading."

    Story
    Where does I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The content is great. The person reading it was difficult to follow unless I was going along with the book. It was hard to tell when she was reading the "stories" of the people the author worked with, and when it was content from the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t)?

    There is so much information that is helpful that it is impossible to say which is the most memorable moments. Perhaps the author's experience of the phone interview for a research grant, with a screaming infant with explosive poop, lactating breasts, and holding back her own diarrhea was pretty memorable.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Again, the person reading seemed to be trying to relate the dramatic effect of the content, but it wound up detracting from the information for me. There was a sense of a lack of continuity.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Shame effects many areas of one's life. Handling shame well in one area does not necessarily mean that someone does so in all areas of their life.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to hearing the author speak in Houston on September 12th, 2012.
