Publisher's Summary

Has your self-help become self-criticism? A wise and often hilarious exploration of the conflicts between spiritual aspiration and the compulsion to improve from Oprah SuperSoul 100 member Danielle LaPorte.

Like a wise girlfriend you can totally relate to, Danielle cheerleads you to own your wisdom and self-worth by having a good laugh (and maybe a good cry) at the ways you've been trying to improve on your self-improvement. Rooted in compassion, feminism, and spiritual activism, White Hot Truth is an intimate and (hilariously) relatable account of self-help tales gone wrong - and very right.

If you love Brene Brown's and Liz Gilbert's authenticity and Marianne Williamson's strong spirit, you'll adore how Danielle lays bare "boundaries for spiritual people"; the "discipleshit" that happens when we give our power away; a "soul-perspective" on suffering; "overtolerance" and "foolish compassion" in relationships; sneaky self-loathing; and spiritual glamour. And in her poetic and brazen way, she brings it home with the hottest truth of all: You are your own guru.

Lacks reality

Lack of reality. Needs better research
Opinions are great but when you have a wide audience it needs to be real. Not google media frenzy related.

Feel good listen

I had been listening to Danielle's podcast sipping a cup of herbal tea after getting the kids to bed. The audio book is different than the podcasts in that it's more purposeful. And of course Danielle's voice, which is soothing and sexy.

Must read for the self help junkie

The best audible book I’ve listened too in a long time! So funny and relatable as a woman on my self help journey wanting to “do better” all the time. Thanks for keeping it real, Danielle!

Disappointed

I really enjoy Danielle’s books. I follow her on social media and I love seeing her posts and videos of wisdom. I really enjoy the content she provides. I think her voice is great for narration and for providing insight as it is soothing but that’s as far what’s good about this book. Other than that I felt like she was just rambling on and on about really nothing and the rare little nuggets of wisdoms she provided got lost because of this.

A book for all

Danielle is best-known for her business advice. I have followed her poetic blog for years. Unlike her other books this is not business advice. It is more a manifesto against our blind-faith in self-development. Because she has the means to test everything

Great voice. Boring as Hell.

I usually love Danielle but Jeeeeez this must be for sleeping. The message doesn't land. It's too boring.

Loved it!

I just finished and I really liked it. I usually listen to audiobooks on 2X or even 2.5X just because I'm more interested in the information than the experience. But Danielle has such a soothing and comforting voice and I listened to the whole thing at normal speed! Listening to White Hot Truth felt like hanging out with a girlfriend who I really respected. I think you would enjoy :-)

Some useful advice but too much woo.

Would you try another book from Danielle LaPorte and/or Danielle LaPorte?

Probably not. I'm over the whole new age thing and have become far more skeptical as I get older. This is for the same reason I gave up on traditional religion. Most of it is made up explanations for things we really don't know the answers to. I'm okay with mystery until real evidence shows up. When she started talking about "soul contracts" that was it for me. I could not keep listening. I agree it's an interesting premise but doesn't hold up to any logical scrutiny. Not for me.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

A lot of eye rolling and exasperation. New Age to me is no different than other religions. It benefits those offering it's concepts in hopes of profiting monetarily.

Any additional comments?

She did give some good advice about trusting your own feelings no matter who is talking and I think I'll take that advice with her book.

Great book!

Very honest perspective on life. Exactly want I needed! I encourage everyone who is into self growth to read this book and get real with themselves.

Perfect Gift!

I gifted over a dozen copies of the physical book to girlfriends with a #TruthBomb as a bookmark. I decided to complete the book again as a read along with the audiobook and it made it so intimate. I suggest anyone who needs to really dig deep...do it that way.

If your full-time job isn’t self improvement, don’t bother with this book

There were a few helpful tidbits but most of the book is completely unrelatable for normal people with normal lives looking for guidance in living a peaceful, fulfilling life.
