    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
    If you could sum up The Power of Vulnerability in three words, what would they be?

    Brene has a way of connecting with the listener. Great story teller. Absolutely relatable, realistic, and empathetic. I loved her definitions of empathic and sympathetic. Something I've felt for a long time. Her story is interesting, and her "guidelines" are practical but still holds weight in being life-changing.

    Would you listen to Renegades Write the Rules again? Why?

    May be... It was good but I don't usually listen to books again unless it was amazing.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked how relatable Amy Jo, and her story is very honest. There was nothing in the book that was crazy groundbreaking, but she understands that herself. She is open, candid and honest. Her examples of working with different client's also really help to open up what it is about social media that is so attractive and can be so beneficial for people.

  • The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism

    What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.

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

    Depends on the friend. If they wanted to be more "likeable" at work or in life, I would. I didn't feel like it was all about charisma but more of a step-by-step process is bettering yourself, growing your presence, and being more likeable (which in the end is being charismatic). If you know yourself (your strengths and weaknesses) well, then the rules and practices in this book will definitely benefit you, because you will know where to focus the work. It's defnitely a book I will come back to for future situations and refreshers on her advice. I wish I had a hard copy but thankfully, she has some great PDFs on her website that serve as good refreshers.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Olivia Fox offers great, applicable ways to become more "charismatic" .I like the way she laid out the book. She gives a formula. Start with yourself and these tips, then move onto these more advanced tips. Some of the advice (esp in the beginning) is pretty standard but she does offer some good yet simple suggestions that I had never thought of or implemented before.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator (and I'm assuming Fox herself) has a way of giving instructions without sounding condescending. She also recognizes some "practices" may be awkward at first but to work through it. That made her advice resonate with me more, because she realizes "self-help" or other strategies to improve your life can be cheesy and uncomfortable. But she assures and explains what this practice will do, how it can be used, and examples of it being used.
