This book has made such a meaningful impact on me and my life. I urge the listener to listen in small chunks then take the time to reflect. There were several moments that reduced me to tears.
Also, I am a 46 year old male attorney. The concepts Brene Brown talks about are universal.
I learned a lot about myself and the dangers of perfectionism. Also laughed out loud many many times. I'm very grateful I got to hear Brené and her work.
Brene Brown speaks about vulnerability from a place of courage and authenticity. She is funny, a wonderful storyteller, and just plain real and upfront about what we hide from ourselves and others. I already feel more confident, whole and true to myself as I remember the truth about vulnerability and its gifts.
This book has made me burst out laughing multiple times:)
In my top 10 of all time
Brene Brown because she's the only person in the seminar!
This is an audiobook/seminar that should be listened to by every person on earth (in my humble opinion). What Brene Brown offers via her research into shame and vulnerability has changed my life, and I believe it has the capacity to change the way all people relate to themselves and to others. It is extremely powerful. The way Brene presents the information is engaging, humourous and practical - it can be applied immediately in your life. This audio presentation has changed my life and I have listened to it multiple times. Thank you!
Brene makes you feel better about the things you do that you were embarrassed to share with others. For me it's random grocery store dance moves and the cry that ends up a laugh.
I called my best friend at various points in the book with some "you should read this, because we aren't as crazy as we thought" moments!
I could definitely do a better job living a whole hearted life, so thanks Brene for providing the guideposts!
I painted my bathroom this weekend. I wanted to listen to something great as I worked. Coming across this book was the best unplanned read that I've ever had. Halfway through I recommended it to nearly everyone I know. So great, on point, and terribly and terrifically relatable!!
Brene Brown is amazing. She has incredible insights into American culture and where we fall flat in terms of understanding what truly matters. I love her authenticity and her willingness to share her own stories, which always made me laugh. She's incredibly funny without meaning to be. I highly recommend this book!
The truth and realness of uncovering vulnerability. One of the best teachings I have heard. Delivered with facts, research, humor, love and vulnerability.
It will make you take a deep look into areas of your life with a new perspective. You will laugh and cry.
I would recommend this for everyone. It is enlightening, refreshing, and healing.
