- Dropping the Act and Finding True Intimacy
- By: Donald Miller, Bob Goff
- Narrated by: Webb Wilder
- Length: 4 hrs and 8 mins
From the author of Blue Like Jazz comes a book about the risk involved in choosing to impress fewer people and connect with more, about the freedom that comes when we stop acting and start loving. It is a story about knocking down old walls to create a healthy mind, a strong family, and a satisfying career. And it all feels like a conversation with the best kind of friend: smart, funny, true, important. Scary Close is Donald Miller at his best.

Social scientist Brené Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability - the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome - is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall. It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong.
Learn to live your life with compassion, integrity and authenticity.

A must read
Loved this book. Adulting is hard, but this book is really helpful and inspiring. Got misty eyed more than a few times. Best of all, the strategies are things you can start practicing right away.
