A friend suggested I read this book. It is very thought-provoking and eye-opening. The author does a good job of showing us our weaknesses and building our strength. I will definitely read again to reinforce her thought process into my own.
This is an eye opening book. It is only in recent years I have begun to be interested in understanding myself and others in deeper way. My journey started with the book Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me). This book is the next step. I will be listening to this book many more times. This is a certainty.
I heard about dr. Brown on one of my Facebook groups. The reviewer suggested this book for conquering perfectionism. She was right. I found it to make me remember and think about events and feelings that trigger my vulnerability. I plan to read and listen to all her books.
I have listened to 2 other of Brene's books and they draw you in because it is being read by the author. They are authentic and its doesn't feel scripted. When I purchased the book I didn't pay attention that this was not being read by Brene and within the first few sentences of the book I was messing with the treble as the authors "s" sounds where very pronounced and distracting. As I attempted to move past the "s" sounds the narration felt disconnected, I imagine because I have listened to Brene who makes her own words come to life.
If this is your first Brene Brown book I highly recommended starting with those she has narrated herself. This review is purely from a performance perspective.
I didn't know what to expect but loved the other reviews. The reading was easy and can applied to all aspects of anyone's life!
I am a recovering engineer who is walking the path described in this book. I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one :)
