I have listened to 2 other of Brene's books and they draw you in because it is being read by the author. They are authentic and its doesn't feel scripted. When I purchased the book I didn't pay attention that this was not being read by Brene and within the first few sentences of the book I was messing with the treble as the authors "s" sounds where very pronounced and distracting. As I attempted to move past the "s" sounds the narration felt disconnected, I imagine because I have listened to Brene who makes her own words come to life.
If this is your first Brene Brown book I highly recommended starting with those she has narrated herself. This review is purely from a performance perspective.
I didn't know what to expect but loved the other reviews. The reading was easy and can applied to all aspects of anyone's life!
I am a recovering engineer who is walking the path described in this book. I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one :)
