While the content of this book on genuineness is great, the reading of it is so phony that I can't bear to listen to it. I will go back to listening to Brene Brown speak her own words; she speaks from the heart.
Purchased the Power of Vulnerability and loved it. I don't think twice when ordering this audio. It sounds computer generated. It's so bad that I can't even stand to listen to it. Very frustrating!
Love Brene Brown
Cannot finish the audio. I will have to purchase the actual hard copy of the book.
I love Brene Btown's work!!!! I DO NOT LIKE THIS NARRATOR. She really ruins the book. Brene does an excellent job as a narrator in Raising Strong
If you search for 'The Power of Vulnerability' you'll find a live talk from Brene Brown, of which about 80% is identical to this book. Because Brene Brown is a lively speaker who doesn't take herself too seriously, it's a much more enjoyable listening experience.
Steady. But as I listened to the book I constantly found myself repeating what was said as I imagine Brene Brown would say it. With Brene's voice in my head, many places were funny; not so with the recording. Really wish Brene had been the narrator of the audio recording.
Very interesting reading - and she has the research to back up her view point. I really got how disfunctional it is to shame someone, and to look at times when I've felt shamed - to move beyond that. Highly recommend the book.
My first audio self-help book, and it is amazing.
The author is certainly a character - one I want to emulate.
NA - though I thought her reading did not allow for the real humor of the author to shine through - it was too "deadpan." No emotion, so it really sucked the life out of the book.
Yes, though not possible - and I really think listening to this book in increments allows more reflection and thought.
I'll be purchasing this author's other two books. I am not a self-help book junkie so I was really amazed at how relevant this book is - and I'll listen over and over.
There were some odd voice inflections, but it wasn't terrible. I found that by speeding up the narration the inflections weren't as bad.
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.
