Jodie loves visiting her grandparents' farm. Okay, so it's not the most exciting place in the world. Still, Grandpa tells great scary stories. And Grandma's chocolate chip cookies are the best. But this summer the farm has really changed. The cornfields are sparse. Grandma and Grandpa seem worn out. And the single scarecrow has been replaced by twelve evil-looking ones. Then one night Jodie sees something really odd. The scarecrows seem to be moving. Twitching on their stakes. Coming alive...

All stars. Because it’s so good. I played LEGO while listening to it. Finished book in two sittings, one day overall.

Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women not living into their full potential. They feel a tugging on their hearts for something more, but they’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough. In Girl, Stop Apologizing, number-one New York Times best-selling author and founder of a multimillion-dollar media company, Rachel Hollis sounds a wake-up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people - whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee....

It’s like hearing a motivational speech from myself. You know what you should do, but sometimes you just need someone to validate you. You need someone to give you that extra push. Her stories were great, her sincerity is real, she is who she is, and she wants you to be true to you. Don’t apologize for wanting more from yourself and your life.

Great stuff Rachel. You can bet I’ll be listening to this again.

I love Mel.
She is a great coach.
There was quite a bit of language, along with a few bits I didn't quite agree with.
When I purchased this book I was expecting something different. It has a feel of more of a therapy podcast rather than a book. But was still very insightful, a bit motivating, enjoyable listen.

Can't listen to it when kids are around due to the language.

My six year old son selected this, and then listened to it in one day! He played lego and just listened. Now he wants to listen to "The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight". He loved the Goosebumps series on Netflix, and is now enjoying listening to the stories. When I asked him how the book was, he pointed out the differences between the T.V. show and the actual book. It was neat to see him compare the two without being prompted.

If everyone learned how to better approach crucial conversations, there would be a lot less tension, and a lot more mutual respect and understanding. This is a must have to any self improvement library. Listening to it just once won't do it. Listen to it again, and again, and again, until you have mastered the art of handling crucial conversations well.
