Publisher's Summary

"Self-loathing is a dark land studded with booby-traps. Fumbling through its dark underbrush, we cannot see what our trouble actually is: that we are mistaken about ourselves. That we were told lies long ago which we, in love and loyalty and fear, believed. Will we believe ourselves to death?" (from Unworthy).

As someone who has struggled with low self-esteem her entire life, Anneli Rufus knows only too well how the world looks through the eyes of those who are not comfortable in their own skin. In Unworthy, Rufus boldly explores how a lack of faith in ourselves can turn us into our own worst enemies. Drawing on extensive research, enlightening interviews, and her own poignant experiences, Rufus considers the question: What personal, societal, biological, and historical factors coalesced to spark this secret epidemic, and what can be done to put a stop to it? She reveals the underlying sources of low self-esteem and leads us through strategies for positive change.

    Story
    "Not my favorite"

    I appreciate the topic but not the amount of personal storying. It very shortly into the book seemed like witnessing a personal exposition rather than a research based strategy one could apply.

    Story
    "valuable book marred by unskilled reader"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes. the book contains excellent ideas and information for those with low self-esteem.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rose Itzcovitz?

    Probably not. She mispronounced a number of words throughout, which threw me off. Also, she didn't have a good conversational flow -- more like an uneasy student reading their essay aloud before the class, rushing through the words without telling the story. There didn't seem to be any distinction between paragraphs, quotations or citations, etc.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Unworthy?

    A big emphasis is placed on the idea of simply realizing how much of your life have you wasted based on feeling inadequate to take part in life, simply because you were shamed by someone.


    Any additional comments?

    Buying a hard copy of the book to review with the proper context and emphasis that I suspect was lost in the reading. Plus, I can loan that out to a friend or two who would benefit from the content.
