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!
this is a great book on what it takes to start to change in your life to overcome those misconceptions very very long time
loved it. the real life experience and stories are what I remember most and appreciate about the book. The narrator was okay but I find that the author herself is more engaging.
