Melissa Dahl, a self-confessed sufferer of many awkward moments, takes a dive into the science behind awkwardness and cringeworthy moments. Happily, she also discusses how to develop the tools to counteract those feelings of self-consciousness and shame. Her narration is feminine and down-to-earth, with some moments of adolescent intonation when portraying her younger herself. While Dahl isn't a professional narrator, her performance is pleasant and reasonably paced, and the material is engaging and well researched. She concentrates on both personal anecdotes of self-conscious travails and scientific studies that focus on identifying the basis of that cringe-y feeling and ways to combat it. The result is both fun and enlightening. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
