Brene Brown is a fantastic presenter who walks the talk and talks the walk of vulnerability.
Brene Brown's delivery of her own content.
I'm more healthily aware of blame, shame, guilt, embarrassment and vulnerability and becoming better at caring for myself as well as others.
Recommending this to everyone I love.
Five years ago I heard her speak at a conference, and enjoy her ways of knowing and her choice of qualitative research. Her choices expands the field away from evidenced-based practice - Finally! She is one of my favorite researchers.
Best. Lecture. Ever.
I have not heard anything that comes close to tapping the depth of understanding Mrs. Brown has on this topic.
This series was better than Brene's first piece on parenting. Why? Because it was longer, and more in depth. But you might want to get both. Because they are both awesome.
Guilt is I did something bad, Shame is I am bad. big difference
Pretty much everyone in the whole world should listen to this lecture. It should be translated into every language. Then maybe the world would be a little better.
I will listen again and again and again. This is not something that can get all in one shot!
When Berne tells why she thinks we as Americans are fearful!
I'm not perfect; I am enough!
People that are looking to change their lives for the better, need to read (listen) to this book,
This is a great, live audio recording from a presentation by Brene Brown. She is authentic, real and charming. I couldn't wait to listen to more and hope for more and more from her!!
I was totally smitten by Brown'sTed talk and bought her book. In hindsight, I really think readers/listeners should spend their money elsewhere.
I guess what's truly important is that Brown herself is happy with her book. Speaking only for myself, I made a bad choice buying it seeing as I find the argument utterly hazy.
It took ages before she got to the point, and by then I was exhausted by anecdotes and jokes, so I think the first chapters could be rewritten (of course, I realize this will never happen)
I just don't trust the basic argument of this book.
I really don't like writing a bad review, but I really felt I had to in this case.
I've listened to this audio book over and over and over. I've used her examples and exercises on myself and with my clients. More of this, please!
Brene Brown MUST read her own work. To me, her humor, laughter, and voice inflections add so, so much to her presentation of her work.
This is a powerful book with critical ideas and narrated endearingly by the author.
I would compare Dr. Brown to Wayne Dyer
She's funny, introspective, and tells relevant and vulnerable person stories.
It made me involuntarily gasp a few times when she shared her research and insights about love, shame, vulnerability and engagement. Started practicing the techniques immediately and made a difference in how enjoyable my day went.
Loved every word. When it ended I started from the beginning again.
best practices for wholeheartedness
A part I found most helpful was the difference between numbing and comfort. It is now part of my awareness practice to ask, is this bringing me comfort or just a way for me to numb out.
I like that Brene's examples and advice are based on research and how she related to the findings in her own life.
I found it best to listen in chunks that I could digest and practice. Some of it isn't easy to hear or become aware of how I do those things in my own life. These talks are something I will listen to again; after all, it is a practice.
This book covers some of the most important topics in life. Love, feelings of inadequacy, imperfections, shame, sanity, etc. Dr. Brené Brown is amazing! Impeccable delivery. This is a seminar, not an actual "book". I laughed a lot and even happened to cry a little. There was never a dull moment during my listening. Thank you Dr. Brown for this wonderful gift!
