A must-read for every woman I know!” —Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author “Lu Ann Cahn has written a delightful and helpful guide to all the ways large and small to unstick your life. Even if you don’t want to eat a grasshopper.” —Delia Ephron, author of Sister Mother Husband Dog “Everyone needs a best friend like Lu Ann Cahn – the bold, spontaneous, zany-in-a-good-way friend – who dares you to do what you would never otherwise consider but makes it look so fun you just have to give it a go. You might curse her name while up on that mechanical bull, but you’ll end up thanking her for shaking up your life. Packed with laughter, shrieking, and the thrill of the new, I Dare Me is an irresistible guide to making every day an adventure.” —Patty Chang Anker, author of Some Nerve: Lessons Learned While Becoming Brave “First first? Buy this book. Then take in Cahn’s spirit and try out her plan. It can only do you good.” —Judith Sills, Ph.D., author of The Comfort Trap or, What If You’re Riding a Dead Horse “I Dare Me is hilariously inspiring. This book will motivate you step out of your comfort zone and take more life-changing chances to increase your life fulfillment and happiness quotient! You will fall in love with Lu Ann’s charm and story-telling style, that is not just entertaining but empowering to say the least!” —Jen Groover, author of What If & Why Not? “Lu Ann Cahn has taken the concept of ‘falling into a rut’ and conquered it in the most humorous and accessible way. From plunging into the ocean on New Year’s Day to eating desserts all day long, she made her year of ‘firsts’ into a guide for anyone who needs to recharge, reboot and find the joy in the quotidian.” —Ellen Lubin-Sherman, author of The Essentials of Fabulous
"I love the bold and brave spirit of this book — along with its wit, warmth, honesty, and endearing sense of fearless self-deprecation. In these pages, the author has packed not only a year of courage, but more than enough for a lifetime. I think (and hope) that her journey will inspire many others like it!"
