Yes, this book and the research behind it will help anyone understand the degree of fear, shame, guilt that we all live under.
I liked the narration best. I normally read books to escape, not to learn, Through this book I learned a lot about me and those around me.
The narrator voice, her tone and her inflection were so soothing to me.
To dare greatly.This book will help me to be aware when I am employing stalling mechanisms of fear and, hopefully, I will dare greatly with love, gentleness and kindness.
I truly enjoyed this book, I plan to listen to it again.
This is the best audio book I have listened to, but I think part of that is because of the content.
I liked that this had real life examples and short chapters
Yes but there weren't too many characters that needed different intonations.
I liked listening to a chapter and then stopping to reflect on what the lesson was.
I listen to Daring Greatly whenever I am on a road trip, rotating with other worthy titles - a worthwhile set of reminders.
Brene Brown - most definitely. Karen's voice grew on me a little, however I kept wishing it was Brene.
It must be hard for Karen to read all the negative reviews, but you have to get that it isn't as personal as it must seem. I just listened to the sample for "The Gifts of Imperfection," and I wouldn't choose that narrator either <3
I laughed and cried in various sections.
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.
I'd recommend this book to the World. Life changer - but better than that, SOCIETY changer. This book is about being who you are - because it's ENOUGH. I love it.
There is nothing to compare it to. Lesser books are The True Measure of a Man, by Richard Simmons and perhaps Wild at Heart.
It was, but 8 hours, are you kidding, I wasn't flying to Australia this time.
Just buy it! It will answer a lot of questions, put a smile on your face, and make the clouds go away.
This is a powerful book that will change how you live your life. Based in research and facts the insights shared by the author, are life changing.
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.
This book is about vulnerability, and I LOVE that idea. I struggled, as did the author at times, defining what exactly vulnerability looks like. It is a term where the definition may change depending upon whom you ask, and the circumstances.
I really liked the fact that it felt like Ms. Brown is baring her soul (showing her vulnerability) with this book. It makes me wish I was better at that.
I have read numerous reviews of folks that were not fans of Ms. White's narration. I was of a similar feeling, but then I sped the narration sound to 1.5X normal, and for some reason, that made it much better for me. After making that change, the narration faded into the background of the story (as it always should), and I was able to focus on the book.
The topic is very interesting, but the audio is done by a simulated robot voice. (Or someone who took great pains to sound like a robot, for reasons unknown)
A real human
To hate robots voices with a passion
Sorry if this review sounds bigoted to robots, I personally like them, except when they read books.
