In this honest, down-to-earth examination of her own life, Dr. Shai shares her messes, her blessings, and the relatable experiences with self-esteem that can help women everywhere embrace all that life has to offer. From the good, the bad, and the ugly, nothing is truly imperfect.
A woman’s path to personal freedom is full of anxieties and missteps, but there’s something to be gained from every failure. Dr. Shai shows readers how to reflect and heal from the past. Those flaws don’t have to be permanent—rather, they can pave the way to something better. Every trial and tribulation is an opportunity to learn about your inner power and harness it in your pursuit of what you want to do and who you want to be.
Better, Not Perfect provides an earnest look into the steps you take from self-care to self-acceptance, as well as how these tips to living an authentic life can ultimately culminate in loving your true self.

I love such personal accounts from Black women, and I believe that more and more should publish their stories and send out all that energy into the world, because what I got from this book is that you can always start again. Not one situation in life is permanent, and your opinion changes just as much as other people's opinions of you-what counts though is what you think of yourself and what you want to pursue.
Thanks Netgalley for the eARC.
Not big on self-help books but loved the cover page and it was on a subject that was interesting. The material is engaging and I learn a lot about taking control of my life and being a leader
Very encouraging and motivating. As a young black woman I love to listen to or read testimonies and guidance from my elders. Although ultimately I will make my own mistakes in life, there’s some take aways from this book that will always remain in the back of my mind.
