When people ask me how I became a shame researcher, I tell them that my career was built around one sentence: "You cannot shame or belittle people into changing their behaviors." Read the first page

30 of 31 people found the following review helpful By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 7 2007
Format: Hardcover
It seems like the epidemic that no one wants to talk about. We all try to put this perfect face out to the world. Really, I am the perfect mother, my house is completely clean, I am fulfilled in my job, I am financially successful, I am a perfect size two, I have plenty of time to connect on a deeper level with my loving husband, and I have tons of friends who I share my every thought. Well, that's what we think we should be. The truth just doesn't always match our expectations.

The problem is that somewhere along the line we lost sight of the fact that humans are perfect and our lives are often filled with reality. Try as we might, we are going to eat that cookie (or the whole bag) and gain three pounds. Our chaotic schedule is going to get the better of us and we are going to forget to bake cupcakes for the school bake sale.

I Thought It Was Just Me looks at the topic of shame. For many of us, during those moments when reality doesn't match our fantasy image of ourselves, we feel shame. Shame goes beyond simple embarrassment or irritation. Shame is a form of self abuse where we berate ourselves for not being perfect.

I Thought It Was Just Me is an important book that reminds us all that to be human is to err. Maybe it's time we all stopped trying to be everything to everyone and just tried to be ourselves. Maybe it's time we all tried being kind, compassionate, and loving (to others and to ourselves).

I used my highlighter on so many pages of this book. Seriously makes you take a deeper look at what makes people tick and click. I love the personal anecdotes and the orderly way she presents her material from the research. I'm now reading the next book she wrote which is just as juicy. I saw her in an interview with Oprah as well as her presentation on the net and I just had to get her books.

Good insight regarding where our sense of identities come from and gives good ideas on how to address them. The book is geared towards women more than men though (which is fine considering that is the writer's area of expertise).

This is the my least favorite Brene Brown book, but it is jammed packed with information in understanding shame, triggers and resilience to shame.

This is by far my favorite book by Brene Brown. She discusses shame and shame resilience in great detail that is extremely helpful.

a great read for those who are in search of their "self". If you would like to know about Brene's information go to TED talks and you can listen to her. She is a great speaker and really makes sense-puts herself in situations and adds comedy to her sessions.

The text is a little slanted throughout the book but I think it's still OK. 3 stars because of the publishing quality not the content.
