Publisher's Summary

After decades of failed relationships and painful drama, Donald Miller decided he'd had enough. Impressing people wasn't helping him connect with anyone. He'd built a life of public isolation, yet he dreamed of meaningful relationships. So at forty years old he made a scary decision: to be himself no matter what it cost.
From the author of Blue Like Jazz comes a book about the risk involved in choosing to impress fewer people and connect with more, about the freedom that comes when we stop acting and start loving. It is a story about knocking down old walls to create a healthy mind, a strong family, and a satisfying career. And it all feels like a conversation with the best kind of friend: smart, funny, true, important. Scary Close is Donald Miller at his best.

Great book!

Great book. I didn't feel I related to the first half of the story as much (although I enjoyed it for the the author's insights and gift for storytelling), but I really feel that I learned some valuable nuggets from the second half that I can apply to my own relationships. The author writes so candidly-- full of great insights. Enjoyed the narrator, too.

Very Good, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hit home on quite a few issues for me! Still single at 42 and I'm aware of my need to be more open and vulnerable with people. He accurately picks on many issues preventing people from intimacy. An enjoyable read.
