"Brown is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about her subject and has a smooth writing style."
"Shame is a profoundly debilitating emotion. It drives our fears of not being good enough. We can learn to feel shame about anything that is real about us --- our shape, our accent, our financial situation, our wrinkles, our size, our illness, or how we spend our day. I Thought It Was Just Me is an urgent and compelling invitation to examine our struggles with shame and to learn valuable tools to become our best, most authentic selves. Grounded in exceptional scholarship and filled with inspiring stories, this is one of those rare books that has the potential to turn lives around."
--Harriet Lerner, Ph.D. author of The Dance of Anger
"Brené Brown has written an insightful and informative study of a subject that leaves many women feeling trapped and powerless. Her analysis of how women are often caught in shame, is in itself liberating, and her thoughtful suggestions will help readers continue to free themselves from emotional debilitation in ways they may not even realize are possible. I Thought It Was Just Me can be a doorway to freedom and self-esteem for many, many readers."
--Martha Beck, Ph.D., columnist, O, The Oprah Magazine, and author of Finding Your Own Northstar
"Brené Brown's ability to explore shame and resilience with humor, vulnerability and honesty is both uplifting and liberating. If we want to change our lives, our relationships or even the world, we must start by understanding and overcoming the shame that keeps us silent. This important and hopeful book offers a bold new perspective on the power of telling our stories."
--Professor Jody Williams, 1997 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient; Campaign Ambassador, International Campaign to Ban Landmines
"This is an important and inspiring book that offers understanding and validation to the painful feelings that come with the beliefs that we are not good enough or we should be different than who we are. Brené Brown walks us on a path that releases the shackles of inadequacy and leads us to embracing our authentic selves."--Claudia Black, Ph.D. author of It Will Never Happen To Me --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Yo human stories.

I also found the stories of shame experiences she included very unrealistic; almost all of them were of straight white middle class mothers feeling shame over their housework and being less than super-patient with their kids. She seemed to completely miss the experiences of men, working class people, those who aren’t parents and LGBT people. I think this was perhaps more from inexperience than done deliberately, but it meant the book missed a huge amount of potential; as it is so unrepresentative I feel only a very small number of people will be able to relate to what she is saying. As a gay woman who grew up poor and has no children I certainly couldn’t.
so I get to it today after finishing one of her other books which was the first ever book I read of hers.. only to find that within a written review included in the book, the word 'woman' popped up and I immediately thought, hang on, is this book aimed at woman then? as its one of those statements that gets you thinking
so I get into the introduction of the book and there was the confirmation, this book is aimed at woman.
and it is such a shame cos not only am I now not going to continue to read it, there is nothing on the title or back cover that let's you know its for 'WOMEN'..
and I don't think anyone could feel justified reading a book if it only has one specific audience.
Sad that it goes to the charity pile.
