She led a social revolution against sexual and racial barriers - now she tackles the barriers within ourselves. In this unique work writer and activist Gloria Steinem discusses the meaning of self-esteem - in the U.S. and around the world - using personal experiences and parables from the lives of people as diverse as Gandhi, Julie Andrews, and kids from Spanish Harlem. She underlines the importance of un-learning and disrespecting educations that disrespected us, while offering practical ways of voyaging inward to learn from the unique knowledge within each of us. Finally, Steinem takes us on a journey through nature, spirituality, and newly discovered capacities of the human brain to show that, with improved self-esteem, anything is possible.

    " I read this a long time ago and its exact contents are hazy in my mind. However, I do remember having a sense of being nurtured by her. There was no proselytizing or sense of superiority that some authors writing in this genre seem to possess. What really came across was her great compassion towards women and their personal struggles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 1/26/2014

    " The most helpful book I've ever read. Took me over month because it was full of information I needed and needed to process. Opened my eyes in a big way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/21/2014

    " Parts of this were so great, but others felt a little aimless. It could've been condensed some for sure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonna | 1/19/2014

    " A wonderful book of self-esteem - should be required reading for all high school girls! Love Steinem! I would have burned my bra for her, but at the time I was too young and wasn't wearing one! But in all seriousness, a really, well-written book by an amazing lady. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 1/17/2014

    " Loved this, even its occasional tendency to meander. Like a good, long Ms. magazine piece. Full of interesting tidbits and revelations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rae | 1/17/2014

    " Gloria Steinem's book focuses on changing the inner self, thus a "revolution from within." She includes chapters on meditation, physical appearance, therapy, education, families and politics. Also included is a helpful "bibliotherapy" list and a sample meditation chart. I went to hear her speak when this book came out and I must say she has quite a dynamic personality. She was most entertaining and I enjoyed the experience in spite of disagreeing with most of her politics. "

    " My therapist loaned this one to me! And I still need to return it to her actually... "

    " What a great book.Gloria talks about everything from her childhood to social justice issues. The beginning portions of the book are very relate-able. This is something that people should definitely pick up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 12/18/2013

    " Not a profound book, but not a bad book either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/14/2013

    " Thought-provoking. Definitely worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenreese | 12/8/2013

    " One of the handful of books i've read and re-read. Gloria Steinem=hero, I hope you know that. Only read it if you're ready for something real and enduring, something that will still be relevant 200 years from now because ALL power comes from within, people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa Tazioli | 12/5/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Harris | 11/10/2011

    " This was very influential in my life. I read it when I was in my early twenties, and it devastated me, leading me to much introspection and the greatest growth I've ever experienced. I have no idea how it would stand up today; I just know it was exactly what I needed, exactly when I needed it. "

    " There are some clear messages within the book that have stayed with me. 'flipping it' to find situations that we have accepted that are not valid! For this message alone....I am thankful to this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anastasia | 7/3/2009

    " I am already trying to turn around the way I look at the world. This book is helping. My favorite bit so far: The job of parents is to turn out kids with enough confidence to make their OWN way in the world. The job of governments is to do the same for countries "
