An award-winning media maker and social critic shares her truth to inspire a generation, teaching how to use the power of story to ask critical questions and build bold, new lives.

Behind the social media smiles, many people in their twenties and thirties are living frustrating lives: overwhelmed and exhausted by the gap between their realities and the image they are expected to project to the world. Erica Williams Simon recognized that this generational malaise was a recipe for disaster, one that she was experiencing firsthand.

At twenty-seven, she abruptly walked away from a high profile career as a rising political media star. She stepped off the "treadmill to nowhere" to find her own truth, unpacking the advice and cultural norms that had shaped her life as she knew it. Along the way she became "story smart," was finally able to reject the lies that society had taught her, and rewrote a brand new values-driven narrative that has helped her create a life worth living.

You Deserve the Truth is a masterclass in how to challenge the stories surrounding fear, work, money, identity, success, faith, and love that millions have unconsciously adopted. Each chapter includes the heroic and heartbreaking lessons learned from Erica's journey and during her tenure inside the highest levels of politics, media, and tech.

Part memoir, part self-help, You Deserve the Truth provides a blueprint for anyone seeking a new way to live; one that is authentic, empowered, and ultimately world changing.
