This book is essential for today's educators and students. Some parts may be a little repetitive, but in a way this is a necessary technique to drive home the points. Will make one rethink the methods of learning employed in higher education settings.

Funny and insightful, with engaging celebrity comedians conversing with Bob. I've been a fan of Bob's for as long as I can recall, but never before had heard the story of hope he got his start. So cool.

I consider myself logical and rational, having studied formal logic and law during the course of my schooling; however, this book made me question what I believe to be true and why. The skills taught in this book are practical and may be put to use in a variety of settings. I especially enjoyed that the author examined common falsely held beliefs in a way that wasn't condescending put still pushed back hard against them, as in the case of the pseudo sciences. Highly recommend.

The narrator's voice was pleasant, but sound quality was very poor and it detracted from my overall enjoyment of this book.

This book provides an in-depth analysis of historical and current constitutional privacy rights issues that rivals a law school course in its thoroughness and careful research. Not at all dry and so pertinent to today's wired world.

This book offers practical insight, backed up by research, into areas of family and work life in which many Americans struggle. Brene Brown delves into concepts like shame, guilt, vulnerability, love, perfectionism, and wholeheartedness, defining and even redefining them as she goes. She offers an interesting perspective on that which is plaguing American culture in a post 9/11 era. Everyone can find application of this book to one's personal and professional life, from clinicians to clergy, from teachers to parents. Highly recommend.
