Book Synopsis



When it comes to authenticity, is being fully yourself always worth the risk? From the author of Blue Like Jazz comes New York Times bestseller Scary Close, Donald Miller's journey of uncovering the keys to a healthy relationship and discovering that they're also at the heart of building a healthy family, a successful career, and a trusted community of friends.

After decades of failed relationships and painful drama, Miller decided that he'd had enough. Trying to impress people wasn't helping him truly connect with anyone--and neither was pretending to be someone he wasn't. He'd built himself a life of public isolation, but he dreamed of having a life defined by meaningful relationships instead. At 40-years-old, he made a scary decision: he was going to be his true self no matter what it might cost.

Scary Close tells the story of Miller's difficult choice to impress fewer people and connect with even more. It's about the importance of knocking down old walls to finally experience the freedom that comes when we stop playing a part and start being fully ourselves.

In Scary Close, Miller shares everything he's learned firsthand about how to:

  • Deconstruct the old habits that no longer serve us
  • Overcome the desire to please the people around us
  • Always tell the truth, even when it's hard
  • Find satisfaction in a daily portion of real love
  • Risk being fully known in order to deeply love and be loved
  • Apply these lessons to your everyday life

If you're ready to drop the act and find true, life-changing intimacy, it's time to get Scary Close.

This is probably the most impactful book I have read in a long time. It really helped me to understand and begin to heal old wounds. It’s helped to reaffirm my purpose and strive towards authenticity with others and myself. It had me broken down in tears (good and bad). I would recommend this book ti everyone.

I've heard a lot of people don't like Blue Like Jazz (while I'm sure many others do), but don't let that one book turn you off to Donald Miller. This one is another excellent, thought-provoking and life-enriching read. My husband and I read it together in the weeks leading up to our wedding. I also highly recommend: Searching for God Knows What and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years
