The book is great, and I found it very helpful. The part that bothered me is that the s's and such sounded really loud because of the sound quality. Other than that, I really liked the narration style.
I love this book. It really helped me see myself with different eyes. I think everyone could benefit from reading it. The narrator did an outstanding job, but having listened to Brene numerous times it was difficult not to hear her reading it. I kept thinking, how would Brene have said that? I highly recommend this though!
Understandable, clear and storytelling.
The part that was most interesting was how she addresses giving yourself a break and the importance of "play" in our lives. We tend to be so fixated on being productive and getting so many things done and she made me realize how much more I should focus on the quality of my life, as opposed to the output.
Great reader, very easy to listen to.
Say something about yourself!
Already listen to it twice!
I found the reading by Brené excellent. I felt she was reading with the listener in mind.
It had some good insights and I made it through the entire book, though I did consider putting it down a few times. It was brave what she did, but the constant repetition of the same joke about her "breakdown strike that spiritual awakening" 1-2 times a chapter really grated on me.
Keep up writing, though. You have valuable insight.

I like the foundational message of embracing that belonging allows us to be who we are. We don't have to try to fit in. This information is freeing if can live in that revelation.
'The Gifts of Imperfection' is something that everyone should read; it provides a tangible, accessible approach to better understanding shame / freedom from shame, and how it all affects us.
