What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“We are hardwired for story and no one gets that more than Pamela Slim. BODY OF WORK is a powerful and transformative book. Before this book, my journey from waiting tables to vulnerability researcher and teacher never made sense. Now, after reading BODY OF WORK and completing the exercises, I get it. Not only does it help me understand where I've been - it's renewed my passion for where I'm going and why. ”
—Brené Brown, author of Daring Greatly
