Reader Review: Nancy Park

"I absolutely loved this book! I wish I had read it years and years ago. I related to so many of the stories that brought this author to her amazing success.  This book made me realize so much and gave me the encouragement and insight to reach for things that I felt in the past that I shouldn't or wasn't deserving of. I also love how the message of "it's ok to fail" is explained as something that is necessary if you are to succeed.  We're not often taught that failure is a positive thing.  And this book has made the thought of failure less scary and more encouraging. I know now it will just bring me closer and closer to what I want.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone who's just starting to think about their career, or someone already established but wants more out of their life and/or career.
