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.
I would recommend everyone to read this book in book form rather than audible. Please do a different reading by the author. Brene has such a great personality! This reader was like listening to a computerized voice. So hard to listen to.
I'm not used to reading beyond entertainment, and yet I was happy to continue to read through this book. the content was not too peachy, pedantic, not patronizing. it was inspiring and offered a handful of wonderful lenses, through which I hope to review myself. I expect I will re read this next year and remind myself....
Seeking the answers to tough questions, Brene reveals how courage, compassion, and empathy can free us to be our best selves. For us. For our families. For all we know. Thank you a Brene.
I have purchased 15 copies of this book to give to others as a gift I have such an extraordinary appreciation for the wisdom contained within it.
Brene Brown is a saint, and you would be will advised to listen to and/or read her words. Your life will be better for it.
Encouraging, inspiring, and applicable
I prefer Brené Brown reading her own books.
That if I dare greatly I am going to fail sometimes and it might be painful but that's ok. It is far worse to never try.
Karen White tried but seemed almost bored reading it.
The content is rich and worth thinking about. It is written eloquently and succinct, and yet I, believe it is relatable to anyone who is open to listening. I would recommend the audio version to anyone and everyone.
And the narration was great, too!
I love everything by Brene, and in theory, love this book, but the narration is so painful I can barely get through this. Is it a real person? It sometimes sounds like a robot who is completely unsure of themselves, if robots can be unsure of themselves. I truly wish I could get my money back for this.
Here is a exposition on life. How and when to confront shame and vulnerability in my opinion the greatest compliment to success and failure, without which the box we are waiting to be rescued from becomes more and more coffin like.
