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 title was so bad that it made me look up the Audible return policy. The author herself is vibrant, energetic and has a great voice, so I really don't know why she didn't do this herself.
No. Can't stand the narrator. I thought she was a robot at first.
God, yes. Please don't let this reader do any more Brené Brown books.
I simply can't stand this narrator. It's like she's speaking to children; too much emotion, inflection in the wrong places. Theatrically over the top. Completely ruined the book for me. Very, very distracting. So I stopped listening and just READ the book myself. Very disappointing. I will not ever read anything again narrated by this Karen White.
This is one of the best books she's written; plus together all of the ideas well.
The author herself, or someone less gimmicky in the narration.
I love Brene Brown -- this audio recording, however, is terrible. It sounds like she's talking through a synthesizer. Couldn't listen to more than five minutes because it sounded like nails on a chalkboard to me. Do yourself a favor and read this one not listen to it.
The book itself was interesting and inspiring. The narration made it unlistenable; I couldn't finish it. I'll probably buy the hard copy.
No! The narrator's tone was cloying and the phrasing was awful. EmPHASis ON the WRONG syLLABle. I kept imagining Siri was narrating.
No. The content of the book is great. The readers voice to me was so annoying that I am choosing to not listen. I will read my hard copy instead.
I really wish Brene Brown, the author, had read this audio book!
