Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women not living into their full potential. They feel a tugging on their hearts for something more, but they’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough. In Girl, Stop Apologizing, number-one New York Times bestselling author and founder of a multimillion-dollar media company, Rachel Hollis sounds a wake-up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people - whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee...

I liked Rachel's first book, though I realize now it was the first "self help" motivation book I had read. After listening to Brene Brown and many others, this one is just too basic. Her advice is common sense and her personal story can come across as bragging or non-relatable. I couldn't get half way through it. It seemed repititive of her first book too.

The book itself has a lot of stories that make this point in how small and consistent changes alter habits but it was mostly a string of stories and examples. The narrator also drove me nuts, especially when he tried to use a female voice. We don't sound like that...I didn't make it all the way through because of that.
