    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 listen to The Gifts of Imperfection again? Why?

    I don't know if I would listen to it again. But I am definitely interested in reading her other book. I found her research very interesting and would like to know more on that. But for the average person it is very inspiring.


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

    I can't remember there being a specific moment that moved me. I loved what she says about having compassion for ourselves, being vulnerable, and connection.


    Any additional comments?

    I have suggested this book to several women in my life.

    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

    Would you try another book from Eckhart Tolle and/or Eckhart Tolle?

    Probably if there was a different narrator


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eckhart Tolle?

    a professional narrator


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to audiobooks a lot at work because my job can get monotonous. I tried to listen to this book twice and almost fell asleep both times it was so hard to listen to. Eckhart Tolle's voice is so boring to listen to, I couldn't finish it. I honestly can't even remember much of the book after one hour, because it did not keep my attention. my mind kept wandering and it put me to sleep. I thought it was just me but then I talked to a coworker who felt the same way about it when she tried to listen to it. I feel really disappointed because I've heard so many great things about this book. I think if I ever want to return to it I will just read it instead.

    Worried about mean girls? Help your daughter respond and react to bullying where it starts - in elementary school.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Little Girls Can Be Mean to be better than the print version?

    I really loved this audiobook. It was very informative, great narration, and I learned a lot. I felt like it had great advice for parents and felt like it addressed every situation that my daughter has been faced with in her social life. I like to mark up books for things I want to save for later. So with that I think the print version would have been better so I could go back reread parts and use some of the tips and activities for girls that it suggested. But I know that with my busy schedule I would have never completed the book. So I am glad that I did get the audiobook so I could actually finish it, because I felt like there was a lot of really helpful info that I'm glad I didn't miss.
