The naked soul
The Shift by Dr Wayne Dyer. It discusses the adaptability of the human psyche and capacity to accept change and find wholeness of heart through connection with the self element and the universal element.
Characters weren't relevant to this non-fiction book. Lauren brought a good voice to the work.
The story told to students when one of them gave Brene Brown insight into her own process and brought out a new perspective. I loved that she embraced the new revelation.
Brene Brown gives the information in a clear manner with a soul connection to both her subject, her inner self and the souls she wants the material to connect with in her readers.
Yes - just to ensure I didn't miss anything
It really made me take a look at my behaviour and how I interact with my 5 year old daughter.
I was surprised at how much resonated with me.
It was like being at a lecture by the author and I found that I focussed more on the messages than if I was reading it myself.
no - I was happy to listen over a week
This books investigation of shame and imperfection is very good and useful. Got a bit sappy on the wholhearted living stories. Overall it was a book worth buying and listening to.
I am a huge fan of Brene Brown and her ideas on authenticity. Having watched her TED Talks near a million times, with tears on each view, I was eager to see what her book was all about. I could hear her tone in every word- just sad that she wasn't the one to speak the words herself as some of the emphasis was lost.
That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and wrote many notes for myself as I went along. Her account of personal experience makes her theories easy to follow and relate to.
A compassionate book buttressed by a scientific approach.
Not narrated by the author; this was a bit jarring at times, as the book is written in the first person.
It took me some time to absorb the book's main points.
I enjoyed listening to this book and found it helpful.
Practical, Inspirational, Life-changing
Brene. She's funny and poignant.
She's clear and easy to listen to.
Let your gaurd down and get the life you want.
I hope everyone listens to this book and shares it with their friends and family! It's that good.
Dr. Brown should stick to being a researcher and leave the writing to experts. This book only makes you want to scream out loud for having listen to it in the first place. This is book is braggadocios, self aggrandizing drivel with smattering of advice. The Gift of Imperfection is imperfect. Dreadful. Absolutely terrible.
Nothing new or that interesting.
Her stories really didn't resonate with someone who has true self-esteem and worth issues.
This is a shallow treatment of a complex subject. Silly examples. This might be good for a high school student to read.
