“I feel seen! In Good Awkward, Pryor puts her finger on something most of us are afraid to admit — we don’t always know the right thing to say, our attempts at small talk fall flat, we get shot down when we venture into new territory. I found myself nodding along to the many relatable examples of how we stifle ourselves because we are afraid of being anything but the polished professionals we want the world to see. But Pryor explores how embracing our inner awkwardness can actually help us perform better at work — and in life. When we free ourselves from the fear of looking less than perfect we realize that our awkwardness can be a superpower. Highly recommend!”
