    The relentless pursuit of high self-esteem has become a virtual religion - and a tyrannical one at that. Our ultracompetitive culture tells us we need to be constantly above average to feel good about ourselves, but there is always someone more attractive, successful, or intelligent than we are. And even when we do manage to grab hold of high self-esteem for a brief moment, we can't seem to keep it. Our sense of self-worth goes up and down like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling in lockstep with our latest success or failure.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I thought it was very helpful. Even though I didn't do all of the exercises, simply hearing this new perspective was immensely helpful for me to be less self-critical. I believe that my overall sense of self has improved and I have less anxious episodes caused by self-judgement and doubt.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, though I found the narrator's voice slightly ingratiating - she had one of those voices that sounds almost too soft and pandering, like she is trying really hard to sound gentle instead of just speaking like a normal person. I wish she had just spoken in a straightforward manner.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    It was great to finally hear that I am okay the way I am! I liked learning about how HSP's have more sensitive nervous systems as well. I always felt so lame because I got disturbed so easily, and now I can simply accept my body the way that it reacts. I liked that this book dealt with both body and mind. This book really opened me up to accepting myself the way I am instead of feeling like I am inferior to others because I get overwhelmed so easily.


    What does Barbara Caruso bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Barbara Caruso reads slowly and clearly so that you can fully experience the writing.
