The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are - Brené Brown This book has a lot to offer, and I generally liked it a lot. I think, however, in the translation of her academic work to a general audience (a laudable and necessary move, in my opinion, for all research) she over-simplified complex dynamics. And there were parts where I felt like things were a bit more touchy-feely than helpful. But those are minor critiques and I recommend the work to friends who might benefit from her insights.
