“Katie Goodman is spontaneous, creative and fearless. Filled with anecdotes and prescriptions for finding courage. Smart, wise and hilarious.”

Goodman provides anecdotes from her work and encourages self-exploration with writing, drawing and doing exercises. Goodman’s advice is even helpful for controlling self-doubt: “Our Inner Critic is trainable. Think Young Frankenstein singing ‘Puttin’ On the Ritz.’” Goodman’s quirky, thoughtful approach and breezy tone should give wound-up readers some new ways to relax, relate and think about their lives.”
