The Mastery of You: Toward an Understanding of Self by Renu Persaud is a powerful book that combines personal testimony with insightful writing to offer readers a path to self-discovery and self-mastery. This is one of the best books I have read in the area of personal development, self-awareness, and connection with one’s self. From childhood, we are made to journey more and more away from ourselves, fed lies that do not represent what and who we really are, and most of us grow up believing that we are what we aren’t, thanks to the programming we have received. But this book challenges readers to dare to embrace themselves as they are, to face their reality, and to build a sense of self that is liberating.

This is a timely book for me and one that many people should read because lack of self-image is one of the chronic problems facing contemporary men and women. Renu Persaud combines personal testimony with powerful advice to create a path for readers to travel to themselves, offering tips and strategies that will allow them to develop a strong sense of self, invest in their journey towards self-esteem and self-confidence, and use it as a springboard to create a life of success and happiness. The Mastery of You: Toward an Understanding of Self is written in a beautiful, accessible style, with flawless prose and a voice that is very compelling. The author writes with confidence, a sign that she knows her subject matter very well. Here is a book that will help readers discover the secrets to building self-confidence and navigating the path to happiness.

I read the book as I got lucky that a friend loaned me. I am amazed at her level if i intelligence! She has the same emotions that so many if us feel, but the way she helps us to cope and her iintellectual take on the most mundane things is nothing short of genius.
Love live live, the way she puts in some poetry to show important points.
This book is one of the most important books I have read. I applaud here bravery, her finesse for just beautiful writing and her smarts! The Mastery of You is a bestseller already!
