Dropping the Act and Finding True Intimacy
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

I’ve been a fan of Don’s since I first read Blue Like Jazz, yeras ago. It’s cool to read this and see the way he’s grown as both a writer and a person, even though I dont know him. His writing is simple and true. I’m always struck by the way he tells stories, its like you are at coffee and he’s sitting across the table from you telling you these things in person the way an old friend would. Get this book, because the truth that these stories point to is incredible.
I bought this book at midnight when it was released…Five years is a long time to wait for something to come out man. But im glad don waited this long to release this. It is his best book by far. Incredibly easy to read and incredibly hard to swallow. It made me uncomfortable that this was a book about relationships, because i hate relationship talks. I dont think i do anymore. I feel like im on the path to healing….Thanks, Don. Cheers.
Sooooo incredible! Per usual
