Absolutely. I've actually already recommended it to 5 friends, and will probably recommend it to many more.
There are so many uncomfortable or taboo topics in our society that we don't really understand, and this book does an amazing job at showcasing some of those.
I cried a number of times during this book because Brené was able to capture feelings that I had never been able to identify. It was incredibly moving.
I had to take a lot of breaks from reading it so that I could allow her message to really sink in and so that I could find ways to apply it to my life.
This book is phenomenal and every day I find new ways that I can apply things I learned from it. Granted, I didn't "enjoy" it the way I enjoy reading fiction, because parts of it make the reader uncomfortable... which is the point. I will soon be reading the rest of Brené Brown's books because she has an incredible insight into humanity.
I liked that the exercises throughout that helped the readers put the material into practice in their lives. I also appreciated hearing different lifestyles and what works for other people.
I have not listed to any others, but I would be open to the experience.
I've never considered myself an orthodox monogamist and this book provides a lot of information on how to handle that lifestyle.
Not likely. He had an almost forced steady rate of speech and he seemed to place too much emphasis/stress in the "ity" for words such as "opportunity" and "possibility" which was rather distracting once I noticed it.
I will likely go back and review parts of this book again, but I would get a physical copy because of the narration.
While Tommy and Tuppence aren't as well known as Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, in some ways I enjoy them more. Christie injects them with levity and humor that seems to be missing with her more celebrated detectives.
Hugh Fraser does a marvelous job, as always, with his narration.
Perceptions define reality
The author does the introduction, which is wonderful. I wish she would have read the entire book. The narrator speaks with a steady rate and a professionalism that almost seems forced.
While the narration leaves much to be desired, the actual content of the book holds some truly remarkable insights into how people define their own realities. Since reading it, I've found myself facing frustrating situations which have become completely reversed after adjusting my mindset.
