Rose's beautiful strong voice, even in moments when it shakes, is as haunting as her story. The honesty that naturally flows in her narration will touch the very core of your being. If you have daughters, or if you are at all involved in raising daughters, this is a must read. Or if you have sons, if you are involved in raising sons, then this is a must read. It is time to change the status quo. It is time to bring down that invisible wall that separates us from our humanity. It is time to recognise and be one with our divinity. Rose's book challenges the reader/listener to take steps, no matter how small, to change the way we see each other. I am deeply moved. One of the best books I've read/listened to in a long time.

I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of courage it took to put together this story and eventually release it. I'm glad Ronan persevered. the story had to be told. For all women who have been abused and silenced. Thank you Ronan Farrow.

Very confronting, and totally relatable

Loved it! Every story touched on one or more aspects of my own life. It made me reflect on my own experiences and the issues I've beem dealing with. Mel provides the tools for moving forward and taking the next steps. I highly recommend this book.

Demi was a picture of success. Listening to her story you realise that behind the scenes she was struggling with the same real issues as the rest of the real world. I especially loved the learnings wrapped in her experiences. Her narration made it all the more real, raw, honest and awfully relatable. It was compelling. I could not stop listening. I highly recommend this book to every woman who has ever doubted herself.

I only had limited listening time, usually when I'm in the kitchen cooking and it was a challenge to have to stop and turn it off. I learned so much more from this audiobook than a lot of the self-help books I'vep read in the past. When Chelsea's voice quivers, I just lose it! This is the most revealing book she has done.

Riveting, entertaining and heartwrenching

I love this book so much I would listen to it again. Trevor Noah's voice brings life to the story. It feels like being there. His mother is awe-inspiring and the whole story is an eye opening insight to true life in South Africa, the kind of insight you don't get from stories shown in the media. I highly recommend this book.

As I listened to the words, I keep seeing myself in her story. My story is her story. Been there, done that. This gives me hope and inspiration to start over and keep on keeping on.
