I really enjoyed the author's take on vulnerability in men and women, and how it looks different.
No, i didn't enjoy Karen White's narration. It sounded like a phone operator was reading the book. A first-person book not read by the author is borderline non-listenable for me.
If you can, I would read this one instead of listening to it. If you can't / won't read it (I can relate), then just prepare yourself for someone else reading it to you.
This book is a bit boring at times, and I'm a therapist myself, but you'll get a lot out of it.
The narrator is a bit robotic sounding. I got use to that though.
I love Brene Brown and didn't like the voice of the narrator but the book was so important, i I powered through it. my favorite part was the description of the whole hearted life.
I wish I would have bought this book in paperback. There would be less chance of my being so frustrated with trying to actually ingest and retain the information.
I wish I could get through enough of it to like anything, but the narrator has ruined any chance of me listening to this book past chapter 1. The first 20 minutes was plenty. No way I can handle 8 more hours of this!
ANYONE!!! I seriously can not listen to this book!! She is NOT a good narrator and I will make a mental note that I will not purchase another book that is narrated by her as it will as well be a waste of money to me!
I can't get through this book far enough to have a moving moment other than to turn it off. I have tried on numerous occasions thinking it was my mood. I will actually delete this from my library and would NEVER recommend this book to anyone on this audio.
Get a new narrator for this book and gift us a new copy.
Any way I can be refunded for this otherwise??
I love, love, love Brene Brown. But I cannot listen to the rest of this book. The narration is so monotone and robotic. It sounds like Siri. For a book that is all about emotion and vulnerability, they really missed the mark on casting/directing (?) the narration.
I have been a fan of Dr. Brené Brown's work for a long time. And I was looking forward to listening to this audiobook, but dear God, it's just too painful. The reader sounds like she is dying a slow and painfully monotonic death. I couldn't even make t past the first chapter. Sorry, but there is nothing daring or great about listening to this, which is sad because I'm certain that Dr. Brown probably wrote something powerful.
New at audible....amazed by the possibilities to increase a lot the quantity of book I can touch!
livro bom que mudou alguns pensamentos e em linha com diversas pesquisas sobre gestão da atualidade. bom, muito bom.
A different narrator.
Her inflection was so annoying I stopped listening entirely after the first chapter. She reminded me of a character Kristin Wiig played on SNL - a washed-up overly dramatic B-movie actress, dying for attention.
I didn't get far enough, but I don't think there were any "characters".
I can't really rate the content of this title but I've heard a lot of great things about Brene Brown. I'm disappointed I won't finish it, but I cannot stand listening to this woman's narration.
loved it. only problem is I wish I would not been away from paper so often...too many quotes I wanted to write down.
