I had read "The Gifts of Imperfection" some time ago and thought that was terrific book. As I was reading "Daring Greatly," I didn't feel the content was much different from her other book. I looked at the descriptions for both books and they have the similar themes - 1) shame, authenticity, belonging, courage, compassion, connection and 2) vulnerability, imperfection, courage, engagement, connection. I think the first book provided more depth and guidance. I think this book provided the stories and examples that allow the readers to see themselves in those situations.
No. The audio edition is painful to listen to.
No, Daring Greatly is a very good book.
Like a bad commercial that never never ends.
The book is not just personally helpful but gives insight into societal stuff as well.
The voice of the narrator was so hard to listen to that I couldn't even get through the book. I actually quit audible because of it. I don't want to purchase an audio book where I can't return a book that is way to difficult to listen to.
Who could get through it
Heavily!!! I didn't make it one minute into the book before I had to stop. I was so annoyed by the sound of her voice. UHG!!!
Who could listen to it!!!
I want another book to replace this!!!
I have listen to Brene Brown speak as well as narrate one of her books. She is a tough act to follow. I am sure the content of this book would be fantastic but the narrator awful. She sounds pained when speaking.failure. Her attempt a Brene's presentation style does not work. I tried a few times to listen because I wanted to hear the content but I just could not do it. I am trying to return the book, having a bit of trouble with returns right now..
The reader sounds like a kindergarden teacher. I just couldn't get past it.
Time wasn't the issue, I'm going to buy the book and read it.
The narration on this book sounds computerized and is too difficult to listen too. I didn't make it through 5 minutes. I will just buy the book for my kindle
I would always get another book by Brene Brown, but this narration was especially horrendous.
I was not even able to finish the book.
I wish I could replace this book with some other, it was a complete waste of my money.
I saw Brene Brown's TED talks, loved what I saw and heard, and immediately bought the audio book without reading the other reviews...big mistake! The delivery is HORRIBLE, the cadence of the speech is stilted and artificial, the "art-tic-cu-la-tion" is forced and OVERLY emphatic. Karen White needs to find a new profession.
I will be returning this book.
EVERYTHING about the performance was awful. The narrator's inflection, cadence, emphatic articulation were all forced and artificial. Nothing good to say about it.
Sadly, could not stomach the narration for long enough to be inspired (I bought the book hoping to be)
Have this wonderful author read her own book, or re-record with another reader and re-release it
Through this book I was able to understand so many little - and not so little- "dark" incidents in my life which caused me to feel uncomfortable or ashamed, and shed light on them. I was able to understand them a lot better, and grow. I can now take these experiences, analyze them in a new way and feel good about myself.
The book is very empowering- using simple language to explain our most inner selves and how it is implemented in varied areas of our lives- relationships, parenting, work.
I am definitely going back to this one! I have quite a few bookmarks.
Karen White's colorful voice drew me into the text. Even though this is a non-fiction, she was able to bring a lot of emotion and the author's enthusiasm from her research into the sentences. Well done.
Really good book: really challenging. The Narration is/was awful - I stopped listening because the narrator's performance didn't fit the content.
Get the book; don't get the audio book. It's worth taking your time over. It's worth hearing yourself reading this book.
