I have never experienced a book that has affected me so deeply. I am 50 years old and this cuts straight to the heart of so many things I have struggled with. I finished listening and then went straight back to chapter one to start again. Amazing.
the Narrator ruined the book for me. Brene MUST Narrate her own audio books! I won't buy another one unless she narrates it!
would have been more interesting if Brene Brown had narrated it.
If Brene Brown had narrated it.
I bought this so my partner could listen with me since I've already read it. I adore Brené Brown, but the woman narrating sounds like a robot. I only managed to get a chapter in before I gave up. Why on earth did they not have Brené read her own book, when she gives lectures all the time??
I found this book very enlightening and applied to many areas of my life from personal relationships, work and parenting. I did not however enjoy the audio voice. It sounded mechanical and almost automated. Took the warmth right out of the book. Other than that I enjoyed this audiobook.
Excellent read for anyone who is trying create better relationships, social interactions, and raise healthy kids. All educators should take a listen for sure!
The narration is so painful it has taken me a year to finish this. I have to listen in small doses or I start to go crazy from the outrageously over-acted, schmoozy voice of the narrator.
Although her research is fascinating and very well put together, the topic was a bit boring for me.
I think I will maybe go back and read it again when I have kids. There's some good nuggets of wisdom.
I think everyone should grasp these concepts and understand them. Just know it's not a very light fun read. It's a heavy topic.
I enjoyed this self development audible. it caused me to question my daily interactions with myself and others without the negativity typically associated with introspection. well conceptualized and well put together...
