Jones’s (I’m Judging You) potentially life-changing book encourages listeners to break free of fear. In her no-nonsense style, Jones lays it all out: be the you-est you you can be, live loudly and fail loudly, and fire yourself. Her guidance throughout the book is spot on. If nothing else, anyone who spends time online—on social media, blogs, or any web site—must listen to her explaining how to manage each space: no, you don’t have to be social media friends with someone you’ve never met; no, you aren’t a bad person for not friending that kid you vaguely remember from grade school. Jones narrates the audiobook herself, so it’s very much like listening to your best “get-your-act-together” friend.
VERDICT Great advice delivered with style.
