This book was phenomenal! I read it for my job because I work with women in the mental health field. This opened my eyes to a lot of new ideas that explain a good amount of how and society acts the way it does. I am just floored at how much impact shame has had (and is having) in my life. I would recommend this for everyone, I think it's so applicable and appropriate for every woman's life.
