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.

So many great things about this book... Brene Brown is such a great speaker and narrator. I have shared this book with friends and family and feel that everyone should hear or read this book. I did not want it to end and have learned so much!

Simmons first adopted a vegetarian and then vegan diet and almost immediately began to experience the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of eating green and clean.

Would you try another book from Russell Simmons and Chris Morrow and/or Black Ice?

Yes, I would. I love Russell Simmons and appreciate him wanting to educate and help people find "happiness". Black Ice narrated the book well and I enjoyed his voice.

If you’ve listened to books by Russell Simmons and Chris Morrow before, how does this one compare?

I have not listened to other Russell Simmons books.

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

Narrator has a great voice for the book. Sounds natural, flows and easy to understand. Some narrators annoy me after about 15 minutes, so I was able to listen through the whole book.

Was The Happy Vegan worth the listening time?

The Happy Vegan was a good book but was filled with information that I knew. It was somewhat worth the listening time. I feel like the story was 50% statistics so it was information I could get off the internet, but I love that Russell is sharing his experience and an advocate for better health in US.
