This book has started me down a journey that is beautiful and challenging and transformational.
This was the first book of Brene's I listened to and the narrator was great.
Since then, I've had the opportunity to listen to Brene' present her own work (The Power of Vulnerability).
I can understand other listeners who say nothing compares to Brene's authentic style.
Let me assure you, it's an easy listen that provides a helpful overview to Brene's body of work.
The author creates fascinating connections among different concepts of emotions. Nevertheless, the whole book is surprisingly practical at a personal level.
A number of related topics are discussed to help give a full picture of the topic.
A little on depression, shame, anxiety, parenting and perfectionism. I like how as a researcher she is willing to let the data take her to what works. Too many people today pick and choose there data to justify their opinion.
Psychology with A touch of spirituality, Buddhism and practical suggestions.
I enjoyed the book and found it helpful for enjoying and dealing with daily life and family.
This is the third time I have listen to it. I pick up a great deal of new material each time. If the title even remotely speaks to you you have to grab this book and start reading. You will not be disappointed. A fantastic book for teachers coaches and parents
Uses the basis of a 12 step program and tries to reinvent it. She uses gratitude, spiritual awakening, etc ( common terms in 12 step programs) rearranges them and makes a "new" 10 step program that excuses addictive behaviors. Sorry honey but I tried your way and I got drunk again. Wish I was still able to return this title and can't.
It took me more than usual to finish this audible because I have to pause to digest. It's not that it's hard to understand but it gives me realization almost every concept introduced. Read this book first before reading Daring Greatly. :)
Brene's shame research and real life examples are so eye opening and healing. I was able to relate and understand through her research. Great book!!! I will buy the hard copy as well.
Excellent audio book. I want to get the paperback as well! Worth rereading and having in my library! As always – Brene Brown is incredibly insightful and inspiring!
