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.

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."

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.
