Publisher's Summary

She led a social revolution against sexual and racial barriers - now she tackles the barriers within ourselves. In this unique work writer and activist Gloria Steinem discusses the meaning of self-esteem - in the U.S. and around the world - using personal experiences and parables from the lives of people as diverse as Gandhi, Julie Andrews, and kids from Spanish Harlem. She underlines the importance of "un-learning" and disrespecting educations that disrespected us, while offering practical ways of voyaging inward to learn from the unique knowledge within each of us. Finally, Steinem takes us on a journey through nature, spirituality, and newly discovered capacities of the human brain to show that, with improved self-esteem, anything is possible.

Not ABRIDGED

Any additional comments?

Love the book, love the experience of hearing author read. This is my first experience with audible.com. This version only covers the first 4 chapters (or about half) of the book, so it is NOT an abridged full version. The description is quite misleading. I had hoped to cover the main points of the book in the 3-hour playtime, but instead am reading the paperback to get the content.

Any additional comments?

Do not get this audiobook and instead get the book. The book is great and I highly recommend it. However this audiobook only covers 4 chapters and this was not mentioned anywhere. It's too bad since Gloria is also a great narrated.
