In this absorbing tale, you watch the timeless principles of servant leadership unfold through the story of John Daily, a businessman whose outwardly successful life is spiraling out of control. He is failing miserably in each of his leadership roles as boss, husband, father, and coach. To get his life back on track, he reluctantly attends a weeklong leadership retreat at a remote Benedictine monastery.

The book and messages within will make most leaders a bit uneasy at times. However, this book does a great job of easing those anxieties, while explaining real world application of the principles to all aspects of a leader's life.

There are times where the story line gets a bit hoakie, which is my only real criticism. There's no way those 5 or 6 people asked all those questions and knew all those quotes. My temporary suspension of disbelief only goes so far.

Nonetheless, the important messages are clearly delivered and reinforced.

I enjoyed the way the narrator slightly altered voice and accents to consistently portray the main characters throughout. Well-delivered, Sir.

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.

This audio book was much more than I imagined it would be. I found insight and inspirations that reach all parts of my life (family, self, work, play). Living wholeheartedly takes a lot of vulnerability. Even those for whom wholeheartedness comes naturally, there's work to be done and Brene is going to pull back the curtain for you!

This story was fantastic and left me wanting to listen to the next story in the series ASAP! The voice acting was also excellent.
