Publisher's Summary

From infancy we are taught to edit ourselves, trimming out the darker, weirder, less acceptable parts in order to please others. But this addiction to approval is holding us back. What if we begin to be ourselves, honestly and fully?

Insanely Gifted shows how to transform our thinking and turn our inner demons into allies. How to reframe disappointment (because not getting what we want can be as interesting and useful as getting what we want). Through techniques to become aware of our Inner Critics and exercises such as Full Body Listening, Catto invites us to better know our deepest instincts and unlock our true power.

    Story
    "Playful self-help for living a fuller juicier life"

    "We turn up to work every day pretending we're not neurotic and obsessed and insatiable and full of doubt, and we waste so much energy keeping up this mutual pretense for each other because we think if people saw the truth, if people really knew what was going on in our heads, all the crazy truth of our dark appetites and self-loathing, then we'd be rejected. But in fact, the opposite is true. It is when we dare to reveal the truth that we unwittingly give everyone else permission to do the same."

    Story
    "Light and deep at the same time"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Jamie walks the talk. He is refreshing. He is not afraid to be vulnerable and share some very personal experiences and feelings to make his point. He encourages us to be walking permission slips and he is being just that for us. He also offers some very practical exercises and tips for us to go deeper and manages to make some somewhat complex concepts very accessible.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. Yes because it was so enjoyable although spending some time reflecting on how the content related to my own life before getting back into it was very valuable.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be doing some things differently as a result of this book and will definitely be a better parent.

    "A fabulous read!"

    A beautiful and insightful read. Very sound views and advice on not only on perusing your creative ambitions, but living life less seriously and with more joy.

    Story
    "Refreshingly self helpy"

    A great, authentic, witty and opinionated manifesto of how we should turn up in the world. Jamie offers some challenging but revealing exercises to help us uncover our limiting beliefs and use that knowledge to become unashamedly authentic and powerful. I enjoyed it but be prepared to read this with a fully open mind.

    "Open Your Mind"

    Free thinkers and those who are prepared to challenge their own limiting beliefs will love this book. Jamie Catto is obviously Insanely Gifted and wants to help you turn your demons into your greatest allies. A truly inspiring book.

    Story
    "PERFECTLY FLAWED"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Insanely Gifted to be better than the print version?

    The audio and print versions are as good as each other although hearing Jamie deliver a "yum yum yum yum..." might give the audio version a slight edge! ;)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Insanely Gifted?

    There are so many great moments in this book and so many practical pieces of advice to take on board and useful activities to undertake that I can't/won't pick one moment. Every chapter is as juicy as the next!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I really appreciate Jamie's honesty and all that he reveals about his own highs, lows, experiences, lessons, challenges and changes. He's completely open-hearted with all he shares and writes about and his witty anecdotes and moving insights are brilliantly balanced. His mix of vulnerability, passion and determination is a gift to the reader.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How to be perfectly flawed...Maybe? ;)


    Any additional comments?

    This book is rich and ragged, mighty and tender and so so so helpful and full of love. I love it.
