Any one else have to listen to music while reading? I can‘t focus when the world is too quiet. 🤫
I really liked that this book was short and hard hitting. It's as if the author knows her audience don't want to spend a few hours reading all the extra fluff it would take to make the book 300 pages, and I appreciated that (not all books are as considerate).
I'm sure this book will resonate with lots of women and I hope the message gets through to all people that it's better to be brave than perfect.
The author's Ted Talk and Girls Who Code movement are awesome. I struggled with the book a bit because I'm not convinced everyone struggles with the need to be perfect. The book did give perspective on how many boys and girls are raised and expected to behave. The best take away was flexing your brave muscle. A quick read if you need a kick in the pants.
I just finished this and want to tell everyone about it. I highly recommend it. It‘s short - the audio was only 5 hours. It talks a lot about raising girls and perfectionism etc. also tips to overcome some of the stuff we‘ve been programmed to accept. It was simple things but also 🤯 and so relatable. #readwomen #diverseauthor #librarybook
This book is so damn good and necessary.
