You're a Miracle (and a Pain in the Ass)
- Embracing the Emotions, Habits, and Mystery That Make You You
- Written by: Mike McHargue
- Narrated by: Mike McHargue
- Length: 5 hrs and 53 mins
For thousands of years, scientists, philosophers, and self-help gurus have wrestled with one of the basic conundrums of human life: Why do we do the things we do? Or, rather, why do we so often not do the things we want to do? In You're a Miracle (and a Pain in the Ass), McHargue addresses these issues. We like to think we’re in control of our thoughts and decisions, he writes, but science has shown that a host of competing impulses, emotions, and environmental factors are at play in every action we undertake.
Thank You, Mike

I am not broken
I had to stop the book when it came to the part where Mike said" I am not broken, I am autistic." So much of my life I had learnt from church that I was a broken being, never whole without Jesus. When I moved on from the Christian faith, I though *if I don't have Jesus, will I always be broken then.* thank you Mike for writing this book through all your hardships, I hope you will touch many people with your kindness through this book.
