Description

Riveting, rousing, and utterly real, Surpassing Certainty is a portrait of a young woman searching for her purpose and place in the world - without a road map to guide her.

The journey begins a few months before her 20th birthday. Janet Mock is adjusting to her days as a first-generation college student at the University of Hawaii and her nights as a dancer at a strip club. Finally content in her body, she vacillates between flaunting and concealing herself as she navigates dating and disclosure, sex and intimacy, and, most important, letting herself be truly seen.

Under the neon lights of Club Nu, Janet meets Troy, a yeoman stationed at Pearl Harbor naval base, who becomes her first. The pleasures and perils of their union serve as a backdrop for Janet's progression through her early 20s with all the universal growing pains - falling in and out of love, living away from home, and figuring out what she wants to do with her life.

Despite her disadvantages, fueled by her dreams and inimitable drive, Janet makes her way through New York City while holding her truth close. She builds a career in the highly competitive world of magazine publishing - within the unique context of being trans, a woman, and a person of color.

Long before she became one of the world's most respected media figures and lauded leaders for equality and justice, Janet was a girl taking the time she needed to just be - to learn how to advocate for herself before becoming an advocate for others. As you witness Janet's slow-won success and painful failures, Surpassing Certainty will embolden you, shift the way you see others, and affirm your journey in search of self.

A beautiful and hard story continues

Janet Mock introduced us to her growth as a person and public figure in "Redefining Realness". Where that book was an intro into what it meant to be trans, to be in the public eye and the hardships she experienced, "Surpassing Certainty" is a look into the vulnerable parts of her. The fears that were scrubbed from her first book form the basis for a story where you weep, fall in love, feel protective and want to admonish. Her reading and recounting of these private moments being you closer to a woman who has all eyes on her in our current public sphere.

A queen.

Janet is a woman whom I greatly admire. Her writing has and will continue to make a massive impact on the lives of trans people, and I'm very grateful to have such an incredible person to look up to.

Love Her!

I absolutely love Janet Mock, and the fact that she is is the narrator makes you feel like you share her experiences first hand. Now I just have to wait until she writes a new book 😩

a portrait of venerability

Janet brought things out of me, revelations and realizations that I wasn't ready for or willing to admit, about my own status or identity and relationships. She demonstrates how to be powerfully venerable and secure in yourself, and comfortable in the Certainty that living your truth presents.

Please read this or listen to it!

Janet Mock is a wonderful person whose story needs to be heard. She is engageing and loving and relatebale even to people who might not share much with her on a surface-level but it also offers a wonderful opportunity to learn about her expiriences as a trans woman of color. It's education on all levels, enjoy! I certainly have :)
