Surpassing Certainty – audiobook review

Surpassing Certainty

Janet Mock’s highly anticipated second memoir, Surpassing Certainty: What My Twenties Taught Me, picks up where she left off in Redefining Realness (2014). She relives her college days and the year spent working at a strip club in Hawaii; first marriage; and acclimation to life in New York City as she navigates a career in media. She also discusses the importance of owning when and with whom she disclosed her trans womanhood; the impact of having a strong network of family and friends; striving for professional success as a woman of color; and loving herself.

“This book describes the path I took as I figured out who I was and processed who I didn’t get know I’d become: The woman who thrives as a storyteller, an advocate, and a wife. This is my attempt to show up for that girl who is yearning to be let in, to be accepted; who believes that obscuring herself is her only possible gateway.”

Mock’s voice is a steady hand as she recounts her triumphs and struggles. Intensely personal, deeply relatable, and a must-listen for everyone.
