“I love good storytelling … and Shannon Alter is a very good storyteller. Shannon enhances this book with her passion, experience, empathy, and candor… and by painting a picture for the reader by drawing on her own personal stories; she invites us to ‘try on’ the concepts she is teaching, making them all the more relatable and immediately valuable.
