Wild at Heart Hater
Brene Brown is a fantastic speaker. She conveys her information in a way that is easily digestible while still being entertaining. It is clear she is passionate about her work. Even though this was a speech/workshop, I felt like she was aware that I was part of her listening audience even if I wasn't present.
The last two hours where she talked about wholehearted living were particularly useful. She gave examples of how to create a more wholehearted life.
I loved this speech/workshop because Brene Brown talked about what all of her research since 2001 has revealed and what we can learn from it. She is a fantastic speaker. The information and her delivery of it was so gripping I didn't want to stop listening.
This audio book is a powerful live event, that encompasses Brene's entire volume of work. It captures her warmth, personality, and mastery of the subjects presented through touching stories and relevant humor. If you enjoyed her TED Talks, you'll LOVE this audio! It will change your perspective, your relationships, and your life! You will learn about yourself, and LOL in the process! I can't recommend this enough!! Get it! You won't regret it!
Listened to this audiobook on road trip on our 10th wedding anniversary and it really has showed us how to take our relationship to another level and to also be able to share the teachings from Brene Brown's research with our 7 children.
My therapist suggested this read when I was having trouble finding compassion for selfish family and friends. This book changed my mindset in many ways especially with issues I believed I was doing great with. I bring up chapters from this audiobook to discuss in therapy and it has helped build on solutions and personal goals. Highly recommend!!
This is my third time with a piece by Brene and I'm glad I got this one after I had finished "Daring Greatly". Yes, you're going to hear some similar stories but the delivery is much more personal, conversational and real. I am moved to develop and cultivate vulnerability and will keep this one in the library for good.
I love this audio presentation. I have listened to it 3 times now, and love it each time, and am challenged by it anew each time. A great gift for anyone age 35-65 especially.
I'm going through a very tough period in my life and Brené Brown's "The Power of Vulnerability" has given me much to think about as I analyze how I got to this point, what I can do to get through it, and how I want to move forward as I heal and grow. Under the heading of vulnerability, the author packs a whole lot of very powerful concepts which she illustrates with beautifully recounted narratives from her own life. I'm all the way over here in Singapore and very far from her cultural context of Texas. But there's a universality to her material, at least in the way she has chosen to convey it, which resonates with me. Her voice reaches out to you with warmth and vibrates with love and understanding. I might not agree with all her definitions but within the parameters that she has set, I think she's done a great job of repackaging her academic research for a general public that is seeking answers to painful questions.

This is my first Audible experience with Dr. Brown. Right from the start she captures your attention. She draws you in as if you were attending her seminar using humor, authentic stories, along with clear explanations of her research. Her explanation of "shame" and the control it has over our lives was a revelation beyond measure. I will add her other books to my collection. She is amazing and connects with her audience powerfully!
