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.
