I was looking for a book to give advice on how to be more confident this felt like an autobiography.
i was very disappointed that i bought this book and it wasnt what i wanted
The book itself was fun to listen to up till the point i stopped listening but i just can't take the narrator. I'm sure she would be good for some other books like Bridget Jones diary or something but didn't work for me.
Her voice :(
Renée does amazing job of sharing her research and personal experiences in her pursuit of understanding wholehearted living and the obstacles that get in our way
This book was nice, educational, but not my favorite from Brené
Also, and I do apologize as I dislike this sort of critique, I prefer the author's voice. There was something about the reader's voice and speed that I found grating. It almost sounded falsely accelerated to me. I tried to reduce the playback speed but that didn't help.
I don't even know if I would want to call it a "self help book." It's more like amazingly studied observations that will knock your socks off at least once, and it will be exactly what you needed to hear. I thought of almost everyone in my life throughout the book. Easy to get through (except when you need to pause to digest the parts that knock off your socks.)
Any useful reading?? ;)
Must read of you're a perfectionist and probably also if you're studying psychology. Second part of the book is little of topic and kind of boring. And in my opinion too much unnecessary author's personal stories. But in the whole really not bad, although for complete digestion I'll probably need to read it once or a few more times. The narration is absolutely great!
