What's the Story?:

From Goodreads.com: "This book is about how to finally give up on feeling bad about ourselves and discover the best person we can be.

An interactive experience, How to Be You invites you to make the book your own through activities such as coloring in charts, answering questions about how you do the things you do, and discovering patterns in your lives that may be holding you back. Through Jeffrey's own story of "growing up fabulous in a small farming town"--along with the stories of hero/ines who have transcended the stereotypes of race, age, and gender--you will discover that you are not alone, can deepen your relationship with yourself, and find the courage to take a leap that will change your life."

My Two Cents:

 "How to be You" is a lovely new book that asks readers to participate in figuring out how they can be more comfortable with who they are and celebrating the idea of just being themselves. This is a fun book that I got a lot of myself. This book would be good for anyone who is looking to find a little bit of happiness!

Our guide throughout the book is Jeffrey March, a person who has really had to figure out how to be himself when the conditions he was surrounded by did not necessarily lend themselves to it. He has a great spirit and throughout the book, it feels like he is talking to you as a friend, which I really liked.

The exercises in the book are fun and insightful. I can see myself going back to this book over and over again as a resource and when I need a little inspiration. This book would make a great gift for someone special in your life. We all deserve to be able to be ourselves!
