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

There are so many ways you can lose the only life you know how to live. When that happens—as it will for all of us sooner or later—the number of people willing to walk through it with us can fall into the low single digits. With this book, Shauna Niequist becomes one you can count on, no matter what. She won’t lie to you about anything. She won’t offer you a spiritual bypass. Instead, she will keep reminding you that what you don’t know about where you’re going is what oils the hinge to new life.
Barbara Brown Taylor, author of Learning to Walk in the Dark
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.

A seminary professor of mine once asked our class to ponder the question, “What is the good life?” for an entire hour-long period. I never found the perfect answer to that question, but this book may be the closest I’ve come. Shauna Niequist reminds us that the abundant life isn’t gained by striving or winning, but by mustering enough courage to forge ahead when our lives fall apart. She offers us the tools we need to build resistance in an age of trauma and to manage the perils of human existence in a world that is changing at warp speed. When others may preach or lecture, Shauna wonders and imagines. I Guess I Haven’t Learned That Yet is a 240-page invitation into a life where change is anticipated, evolution is embraced, and learning is just another word for living. If that’s not the good life, then I don’t know what is.
