Overall I liked the book and took away a lot. However, at times I felt she got a little preachy and it became condescending at times. I definitely would recommend it to everyone who has experienced shame. It made me conscious of the issue and gave me ideas of how to cope. However, it was long-winded at times and over-reliant on stories. Good read but be prepared for those fallacies and overlook them as the content is still strong
The narrator is decent though takes a bit to get used to her way of speaking and pausing (if you've ever heard the way Brene Brown speaks it's more fluid.) The teachings of this book are good. It has a bunch of relatable stories and elements in there. A good audible book all in all. The book sometimes got glitchy so I had the press pause and then play again which would normally fix it.
Brené has a strong grasp on her research and what it means in the real world. This comes through when she narrates her own work. The narrator is syrupy, gaggingly disconnected from the message of strength in the content.
Brené, read your own work, lend your voice and passion to us as we work to embody your work.
I am a huge fan of Brenè Brown and her theories regarding vulnerability and wholehearted living. An excellent read for providers, parents and anyone wanting a fuller life.
Brene Brown is such an amazing speaker, I have no idea why she didn't narrate this book.
No, she is unfortunately the reason I had to stop listening. She read the book as if it were a soap opera.
The book is amazing, it is just the audible version that is unbearable.
helpful, thought provoking insights told in a personal manner. author shares data & personal stories that illuminate a journey of healing the heart & spirit. I found it very helpful.
I love Brene Brown and her books. She's fantastic! I was so disappointed by the narration of this book, and was only able to listen for 5 minutes before I shut it off. It sounded like sentences were pieced together word by word. The intonations were completely off. So distracting from what I'm sure could have been a very enjoyable listen! This would be 100x better if it was narrated by Brene!
This was brutal to finish. I think there should be a standard that any self-help type book, especially if written by a motivational speaker, that the author must narrate their own audio books. Maybe (?) I would have enjoyed this more had the author read it, or had I read the book myself. The audiobook as it is now is horrible. Breathy, disingenuous, vapid. Nothing resonated for me. Very disappointing.
