She led a social revolution against sexual and racial barriers - now she tackles the barriers within ourselves. In this unique work writer and activist Gloria Steinem discusses the meaning of self-esteem - in the U.S. and around the world - using personal experiences and parables from the lives of people as diverse as Gandhi, Julie Andrews, and kids from Spanish Harlem. She underlines the importance of "un-learning" and disrespecting educations that disrespected us, while offering practical ways of voyaging inward to learn from the unique knowledge within each of us. Finally, Steinem takes us on a journey through nature, spirituality, and newly discovered capacities of the human brain to show that, with improved self-esteem, anything is possible.

Love the book, love the experience of hearing author read. This is my first experience with audible.com. This version only covers the first 4 chapters (or about half) of the book, so it is NOT an abridged full version. The description is quite misleading. I had hoped to cover the main points of the book in the 3-hour playtime, but instead am reading the paperback to get the content.
Do not get this audiobook and instead get the book. The book is great and I highly recommend it. However this audiobook only covers 4 chapters and this was not mentioned anywhere. It's too bad since Gloria is also a great narrated.
I couldn't stop listening, it was so good, like all her books are. You won't be sorry you read it.
selfhelp book-eater.I love comedy, to cook and bake, dogs and gardening.
It's the 1st selfhelp book that isn't just focused on the inside, of course the outside counts in the building of oneself!
It has become one of my favorite books!
