I like the flow and honesty of the author. The guidance/advice seemed genuine and honest
Some personal experiences and some research based it was a very good balance
The reader did a very good job and I enjoyed listening to her
I like the whole book -
I will listen to this book again. I have told friends about this book. It is a good choice if you are thinking about becoming a better person
Different reader. I just started listening and I am not interested in continuing. Listen to Brene's speeches and understand her spirit in what she is communicating.
I was very disappointed to find it was not Brene Brown reading this or even someone like her. The reader is very stilted. Not Brene's style at all. Brene is humorous and makes the subject interesting while making the mood lighter. Thiis reader shows no personality. Just reads like robot.
Too stilted. Not at all offering the SPIRIT of Brene's message.
chose another reader.
This book is not talking about things that are entirely new. Rather, it triggers us to be more aware of and better at practicing what should be intuitive but we normally overlook.
I'm addicted to Audible. A new grandma I am responsible for my grandsons library, which reignited my interest in books.
Brenes books are amazing and have filled in a huge missing piece within the power of intentions theory. I strongly suggest pairing this book with the E Course offered through own and getting a journal and water colors. This combination has had a profound affect on me. The narrators voice was a little too sweet and fairy tale ish for Brenes whit and truth talk. Though I do understand she's a busy lady that needs boundaries.
The book and the narrator were a little irritating and self righteous. I powered through the whole book because there were a few golden nuggets of helpful wisdom buried DEEP inside.
This book was just okay for me. Unfortunately, I just don't feel like it was that memorable. I listened to it at various times during three different days & there just isn't a lot that stood out as life-changing. The performance was fine & the story was easy-flowing. I liked what the author had to say about guilt & shame and their roles in our lives etc, as well as the effects they can have on our relationships. I appreciate many of the author's points...but, there just weren't that many after the first couple of chapters.
This is the first time I write a review. I often withhold negative review because I lecture often and I realize how devastating bad reviews can be. I love hearing Brene Brown deliver her Ted Talk, lectures, interviews with Oprah ect. Unfortunately, her success as a an orator is the yardstick that I held against narrator Laura Fortang. Bottom line for me, the content is good but the narration almost killed it for me. It was the first time that I felt I was watching a frothy tv show and not actually listening to a book with profound significance. Had I bother with listening to a sample of this book, I would had realize how uncomfortable I was with the narration. My humble advice, not a good selection for audible book, just read it on paper or tablet!
Narration felt very disconnected to the content of the book. The tone of the narration is highly animated at all times, even when the author is trying to convey vulnerability writing about intimate and or shameful experiences. Narrator seemed to lack sensitivity to navigate the different moods of the book.
