    On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Power of Vulnerability again? Why?

    Yes. I really enjoyed this. I have a practice of listening to books on tape as I power walk on the treadmill each morning. I especially like listening to titles that are motivating and supportive. Brene Brown is funny, inspiring, motivating and helpful. This particular title has a lot of her best lessons embedded into one tape. I also like her voice and style of presentation. Her wholeheartedness really comes through and is infectious.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The messages about living wholeheartedly and guideposts for how to do it.


    What does Brené Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is great. Very real and touching. She has an infectious laugh and is very inspiring. I can only imagine it's so much better hearing her than reading this.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Living wholeheartedly means taking time for rest and play. We can allow ourselves to do this.


    Any additional comments?

    A great listen. I highly recommend it. I've gifted it to several of my friends.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who can tolerate the style of the narration. I felt it was not in keeping with the book's message. This is a thoughtful book and the narrator's style was too perky and stilted.


    What three words best describe Peter Berkrot’s voice?

    Too perky for the subject. It distracted from the book's message, I thought.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The underlying message of the book. I just didn't like the narration.
