This book is almost identical to the content in The Power of Vulnerability. That was a huge disappointment. I also didn't like that it wasn't Dr. Brown's voice. It was mechanical and sounded like I was listening to Siri for 8.5 hours.
I can't say whether or not I would recommend this book because I couldn't keep listening due to the overly dramatic reading. I would have rather heard a different narrator. I haven't listened to Brene's other books so I don't have anything to compare this to. I couldn't get past the narration.The melodramatic narration is unnecessary for the material.
I love Brene but I couldn't listen to this. The narrator was just dreadful. I felt like there was a little kid somewhere fiddling with the volume but it was just the narrators sing song-y voice. Way to ruin what I am sure was an excellent book.
Brene Browns book on vulnerability is a life-changing event that I recommend for everybody especially parents teachers and leaders to read in Earnest and use as a constant reference book
Overall a great message, namely: "make yourself vulnerable and you are guaranteed to get more out of life". 5 stars for the message, 4 stars because it went too long.
The message was wonderful instructing how to embrace vulnerability. Something almost everyone struggles with. The narration was robotic and nearly unbearable.
