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.

Good read for all stages of life and relationships. by Dana on 8/18/2015

This book is about authenticity, how to be your authentic self in a relationship. It's hard for most of us to let anyone get close and to believe that as ourselves, we can be worthy of being loved. It's a good read, with humor and a lot of stories of real people which help the reader to visualize what being authentic in a relationship looks like and what we miss out on when we are afraid to share our real selves. I think it would be good for couples who are dating but it also has things to say for those of us who have been in relationships for a long time. I wish I had read this in my 20s, but I don't think it's too late for those who are a little older to get started getting closer to those we love. I would recommend this book.
