What made the experience of listening to The Courage to Be Yourself the most enjoyable?

The author's message is to have love and compassion towards yourself. She touches on a variety of negative emotions we might have, but does it in a positive and encouraging way. The narrator is perfect, she reads slow and has warmth.

What other book might you compare The Courage to Be Yourself to and why?

This book is similar to Self-Compassion, another book that I love. Which also has excellent narration.
