    “Own Your Self is an education and a medical reformation—a much-needed island of sanity in a crazy world! Dr. Kelly Brogan is a true psychiatrist, a doctor of the soul, and a guide back home to your authentic self.

A woman should read plenty of books for a better understanding of the world, and her position in it.
