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.
This is the second book I have listened to by her and I found her through her TED talk. I have been taking serious risks in both my personal and business lives and find her perspectives very encouraging. I highly recommend her work.
some great points about how we interact and limit ourselves and decent recommendations on how to address these problems that are broadly applicable. The language used is a bit overblown and at times make very strong pronouncements based on theory/data that can easily be explained better by other theories. however the author appears more interested in promoting her views rather than a rigorous approach
Should be required reading for parents, teachers, school administrators and any work place supervisors - and anyone who wants to find their way from a closed off guarded controled white knuckle life to living a whole hearted life. Wish the audio had been read by Brene, I enjoy her style.
great for people struggling to find out more about themselves and other's. Also be more productive, caring ,and love for themselves in their life. love this very helpful. wonderfully narrated!!!
Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and the occasional non-fiction or bestseller. :)
The book itself is excellent but audible did a disservice to it with the subpar narration. Needs a livelier voice; why didn't Dr. Brown do it?
I loved the humor and challenge that Brene Brown presents to me the reader. In trying to figure out how to face life's choices and how to move forward in a manner consistent with my own integrity.
narrator sounded like she was going to break down and cry at any moment. The entire topic could have been covered in a paragraph.
Having a hard time with the narrator's voice/style. Was really looking forward to this great book after listening to The Power of Vulnerability! I am sure the content is amazing. Just going to have to push myself to listen.
