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.
Brene Brown and her work entered into my life exactly when I needed her most. She talks about letting go of perfection and others expectations and being aware of what you may be doing to cause shame on another person. Her goal is to help others live whole-heartedly. A nice, soul-searching read.
