    Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on 12 years of research, her book argues that vulnerability is not weakness but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    What little of it I could get through was good in terms of content but I could not listen because of the narrator. I really wish Ms. Brown had read it herself. I powered through about an hour and a half of it.


    What didn’t you like about Karen White’s performance?

    The best comparison I can make is a female version of Eugene Levy's character in A Mighty Wind. But maybe it's just me. Listen to the sample. If it doesn't bother you then get the book. The content is good.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would certainly recommend this audiobook to anyone looking to build their personal brand. Some great how-to steps in here.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked having a lot of detailed steps to building a platform.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I wasn't thrilled about the narration - the author doing it himself. I understand why he did, though. In a book all about building your own brand and putting yourself out in the world, he kind of had to narrate it himself or risk inauthenticity. (is that a word?)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, though I didn't.
