Rating: 5 out of 5

I discovered this book through a mention in “How to be yourself” which I’m reading as my research book at the moment. My bedtime reading is usually either fiction or a memoir. I had considered this to be a memoir, although in actuality is probably more self-help, and so I read as part of that other part of my reading world. It’s an interesting concept. The idea that rejection, or fear of rejection, shapes our life. I do have a problem with the idea of rejection (I suspect many of us do) and so it seemed like a good book for me to read. I enjoyed the storytelling approach taken and I’ve come away with some ideas to try, and most importantly a new question to ask myself when I get bogged down in the myriad way my brain tells me something could go wrong - “So what?”

That takeaway lesson that I hope to make a lot of use of makes it a 5 star book for me.
