If Steve Martin and Julia Cameron had a baby and hired Samantha Bee to raise it, you might get someone as bright, funny insightful and inspiring as Katie Goodman.

Personal Growth

A winning and creative volume that will help the shy, the fearful, and the controlling to loosen up and enjoy life. Goodman provides anecdotes from her work and encourages self-exploration with writing, drawing and doing exercises. Goodman’s advice is even helpful for controlling self-doubt: “Our Inner Critic is trainable. Think Young Frankenstein singing ‘Puttin’ On the Ritz.’” Goodman’s quirky, thoughtful approach and breezy tone should give wound-up readers some new ways to relax, relate and think about their lives.
