For me audio is almost always better than print
Can't think of one right now.
Very annoying tone and condescending style
Vulnerability has its place and shouldn't be feared. I can actually bring value.
The book is great. This audio book could only be improved if it was narrated by Brené Brown.
This book is non-de script as the author tries to rename commonly used behavioral words and create new definitions for these words. It's confusing and not helpful. Very wordy.
I liked the fact that this was written. It loved her Ted talk. I think the intention and topic are good.
I think this was delivered poorly. The reader's infrlextions and pauses, and voice, reminded me of the Star Trek computer voice or those text to audio programs. Robotic, droning.
Also, I found the story to ramble often, and did not get to helpful items readers could incorporate. I stopped this 2 hours from the end, after forcing myself to listen past the first 1/2 hour.
I do not recommend this book.
So many people reviewed this book, in my opinion, unfairly. I enjoyed every minute! So many complained about the narrator. I believe these people became spoiled by listening to the author before listening to this book. I would suggest that you listen to this book 1st, then move onto the other books read by the author herself. If you have already listened to her, and you want to listen to this book, keep in mind that this narrator is an actor, not a researcher. Of course I would prefer to listen to Brene Brown, but this book is life-changing and should not be discarded because of the narrator. I actually enjoyed her narration. It reminded me very much of the voice of Siri! Soothing and perfect annunciation and diction. That aside, listening to the content of this book resulted in some of the most profound paradigm shifts I've ever experienced. So many things in this book will leave their mark on my life. This is a must listen-to!
I love Brene Brown's books and her philosophies on life, shame, guilt, and other deep topics. her TED talk on vulnerability literally changed my life. However, I could not make it very far in this audio book because of the narrator. Slow, monotonous, and mechanical. Not personal at all.
Inflection and speed!
The message is amazing.
Ms. Brown does an amazing job of bringing to light what most of us try to avoid. She gives great examples so that we can relate it to our own circumstances and hopefully apply it. I felt the narrator was very well picked, she brought the story to life.
