Publisher's Summary

Read by the author with an audio-exclusive interview of Shauna about her family's move to New York.

When everything we've been clinging to falls apart, how do we know what to keep and what to let go of? I Guess I Haven't Learned That Yet, now a New York Times bestseller, is a clear-eyed look at where we go from here—and how we can transform our lives along the way.

Just after her fortieth birthday, author Shauna Niequist found herself in a season of chaos, change, and loss unlike anything she'd ever faced. She discovered that many of the beliefs and practices that she usually turned to were no longer serving her.

After trying—and failing—to pull herself back up using the same old strategies and systems, she realized she required new ones: courage, curiosity, and compassion. She discovered the way through was more about questions than answers, more about forgiveness than force, more about tenderness than trying hard.

In I Guess I Haven't Learned That Yet, Niequist chronicles her journey—from her life-changing move from the Midwest to Manhattan to the power of unlearning what is no longer helpful and accepting the unknowns that come with midlife, heartbreak, and chronic pain.

With her characteristic candor and grace, Niequist writes about her experience learning how to:

  • Discover new ways of living when the old ways stop working
  • Embrace the challenges and delights of releasing our expectations for how we thought our lives would look
  • Trust God's goodness in a deeper, more profound way

Follow Niequist as she endeavors to understand grief, to reshape her faith, and to practice courage when it feels impossible.

Praise for I Guess I Haven't Learned That Yet:

"Gentle. Loving. This tender book asks us to listen to our pain, lean into our discomfort, and trust that we can be lifted back on our feet by God and each other."

--Kate C. Bowler, New York Times bestselling author of No Cure for Being Human

"This book is a masterpiece. It is a journey and an invitation and a joy and a heartbreak and all the things you need to read to be reminded that hope can still be found."

--Annie F. Downs, New York Times bestselling author of That Sounds Fun

I’m kind of over it.

I really like all her previous books but this one made me question if she should go back and read her own advice. She seems to fall back into the same old habits that stress her out and cause anxiety in her life. She vague about a lot of experiences she write about in this book and to some extent it starts to feel like a lot of complaining. I truly like her books but this one felt like that friend who comes over asking for advice on the same life challenges but never learns.

Absolutely incredible and exactly what I needed to hear

I cannot even begin to describe how incredible this book is! I listened to it all in one day, and am about to start listening to it a 2nd time. Listening to it is like salve for my soul. There are so many chapters in this book that are exactly what I needed to hear right now. I think this is my favorite Shauna Niequist book (which says a lot because Cold Tangerines and Bittersweet were tied for my all time favorite books)

So good!

Shauna is a delight! She is authentic and relatable. I devoured this book in 2 days and think I will start it over again in case I missed something the first time!

Amazing Writing & story telling

I love all of Shauna’s books so it was no surprise that this one was great as well. Her story telling, writing and descriptions are impeccable. I loved how relatable her stories are as well. Now I want a hard copy!

Not as I hoped

The book was not as I had hoped it to be. Seemed to have selected all the good pages on all of the advertising that it dead. While I did get a few things out of it I still wouldn’t recommend it

Thoughtful, therapeutic and fun! I had not learned these things yet either.

I loved this book for so many reasons. I’m 53 and related with almost all of her chapters on every level from faith to friends to family and all the pieces of the puzzle that go with each of those. My 3 boys are flying out of the nest one by one (only one still in high school) so I am at a different stages there, but I enjoyed every chapter and loved how she laced New York throughout the book. Having lived there for 2 years in my 20s, I could visualize every place she described, and have the same adoration and praise for the greatest city on Earth. I can’t wait to go do the fun recommendations in the bonus chapter on Audible. Thank you for this book. I already recommended to lots of friends.

Tender and Authentic

Gosh, I just love Shauna Niequist. She writes in such a beautifully descriptive way, you can almost taste the food she describes. You can walk with her around her amazing new hometown. If you're looking for lots of answers, you won't find them here. But you might find better questions that you can ask yourself. i sure did. Brava, Shauna. The Bonus Interview was perfect too.

As expected.. beautifully authentic.

I am grieving the completion of this book. Shauna is notorious for her ruthful authenticity. Something that I cherish. This book feels like you are eating a bowl of Ben and Jerry’s with your best friend. I am so grateful for truth tellers like Shauna. I am going back now to reread this and all her previous books. So scrumptious!

Real deep hope

This book feels pastel. It’s not bright yellow or soft kitten grey, it’s somewhere in between. Real and rich, hope filled but not in a fake smile kind of way. It’s the kind of book you feel good about reading!
