Brave, Not Perfect: How Celebrating Imperfection Helps You Live Your Best, Most Joyful Life


From the founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, Reshma Saujani, this empowering book (inspired by her TED Talk) is a call for girls and women to embrace mistakes and let go of perfectionism. Girls, as Saujani explains, are culturally conditioned to be afraid of failure, to play it safe and to sacrifice their voice in the vein of politeness, but prioritizing perfection is a recipe for an inauthentic life. Using personal anecdotes and powerful insights from her own life, Saujani draws on interviews she conducted with women and girls around the world to dismantle these societal expectations and chart a course where bravery is a lifelong practice.
