I don’t write reviews like Hashtag ever, but I could not hashtag get through this book. I could get behind the hard luck rags to riches story, but HOW did she go from a shitty place to bring a career counselor/life coach:executive recruiter interviewing college athletes on their rags to riches stories. It’s that empty place where we are supposed to believe that she just used Hashtag Positive Thinking to Hashtag Seriously So Blessed to get a job with one year old twins. I think the narrator is really good. And as a newly single mom of both twins under 5 and an infant baby, I wanted to connect with this author. I don’t need another Hashtag The Secret book. I need to know how she networked besides FB, more about her failures...who knows if I’d listened longer than an hour if I would hear that. But I Hashtag Couldn’t Change The Voices in my Head to beyond the Hashtag Annoying. I love the visual poster for Hashtag Visualize It. If you get this book just know you’ll be told inspirational platitudes via hashtags. If you have a Live Laugh Love poster in your house, this book is for you. Hashtag Say It.

I enjoyed being reminded about what makes people feel valuable and how to become a more engaging conversationalist. I thought the narrator did a great job.

I listen to several of the sleep series before bed. The first part is generic relaxing talk (and kinda cheesy) and I'm asleep by the time the topic is discussed. I randomly hear bits and pieces as I go from deep to light sleep. Throughout the day I notice that I will have more positive early reactions to problems. For example, if I hit a wall with my creativity or confidence at work, instead of getting frustrated and procrastinating, i have a flash of a thought about how I deserve to try, express my talents, and not give up. I can't even recall a single phrase, but it's had a positive trigger effect and good outcomes with my productivity. I monitor my sleep on the argus app. I gave it 4 stars for performance because the authors voice is not too relaxing, kind of mechanical. It would be better narrated by someone who has a naturally soothing voice. Also it's creepy to hear that we don't have to be awake to hear everything he is saying, going into our subconscious. I don't think coaching for sleep anxiety is the real purpose...if it was this phrase would be more pertinent. There's a lot of dead time in the tape, which is planned. Overall I'm glad I tried these sessions, and I've bought a few more.

  • The Power of Vulnerability

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.

What didn’t you like about Brené Brown’s performance?

I wanted to love this book as it came to me highly recommended. But after listening to about 45 minutes, i simply couldn't listen to any more of the authors use of what seemed like a nervous language tick when she would ask rhetorically every other sentence, "Does that make sense?" Of course it made sense, what didn't make sense was her senseless use of that phrase. It reminded me of a valley girl repeatedly using the word "like" at the beginning of her sentences. For that reason, it was difficult to listen to, and I didn't find the material all that interesting or surprising, but I'm giving it four stars for overall and story, because the issue of shame is big for a lot of people and I can see how it might be perceived as revolutionary to some. Maybe I could've had a different experience if I had read the book. But now that I have "Does that make sense? Does that make sense?" etched in my brain, I don't think I ever will.
