Readers, today is the day! I'm so excited that my brand-new book Reading People: How Seeing the World Through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything is now available wherever new books are sold.
About the book
If you’ve hung out around here on Modern Mrs Darcy for any length of time, you know that I’m a longtime personality geek. I’ve found through experience that digging into various personality frameworks—like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the Clifton StrengthsFinder, and the Enneagram—are fantastic tools for learning more about myself and the people around me. They’ve changed my life and my relationships for the better, no question. But these frameworks aren’t always easy to understand, and not just because the amount of information out there can be totally overwhelming.
That’s why in this book I share my own experience with the personality frameworks I love the most, the ones that have made the biggest difference in my own life. I walk you through 7 different frameworks, explaining the basics in a way you can actually understand, sharing personal stories about how what I learned made a difference in my life, and showing you how it could make a difference in yours, as well.
Behind the scenes
Way back in What Should I Read Next episode 84, I mentioned offhand that "one day on the podcast we would have to talk about all the fascinating things I've learned about the publishing industry in the process of bringing this book to life." A bunch of you heard me say that and said YES PLEASE.
And so today, in a very special podcast episode, I'm taking you behind the scenes of how Reading People came into being. Guided by YOUR questions, we're delving into the intricacies of how my book was made, from the details of working with agents and editors, to how my book got matched up with a publisher, to how the cover was designed. We also get personal with an exploration of my writing habits, what I learned along the way, where the initial idea came from, and how the story really started ... even before the idea phase.
This is such a fun and unique episode and I can't wait for you to listen today.
