Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Rising Strong, written and read by Brené Brown.

The physics of vulnerability is simple: if we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. This is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of disappointment, failure and heartbreak gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and Rising Strong our clearest path to deeper meaning, wisdom and hope.

A book with great insight to emotions

I have been lately working on managing my responses in difficult times and Rising strong has given me a great insight to it. This book had been by far the best book I have read. It's my first book written by Brene Brown and I can't wait to explore the other books she has written down. Truly vulnerable in expressing her own emotions allowed me to understand that we all run sweat and are covered with dust in the arena, when we r knocked down. We all should be confident to rise up and face the battle . Thanks to Dr. Brene Brown not only for the courage to write a book on shame and Vulnerability but also for narrating it in her own voice, which made the audible truly authentic. Thanks again!

Wholehearted

I’ve been a fan of Brene Browns work since I read Daring Greatly, probably around the time it came out. I picked up the kindle version of Rising Strong also the year it came out but didn’t connect with it at first. Now, 2.5 years later hearing her read the book to me I feel so inspired and hopeful from learning what I have. I’ve learnt so much and was already going through this process with my counsellor, I just didn’t see all the steps like this and this understanding will be so helpful. Thank you for doing the work you’re doing, it’s so wholesome and life changing.

Truth of life

This book, Rising Strong to me is nothing but Spiritual! It feels like the Bible stories brought home to real human experience. I saw my past and present while listening to this book. I am inspired to actively show up in writing the future I want for myself.
Thanks to Dr Brene' Brown for this outstanding work.

Learn to ride the wave

Brown reads so well and her voice is so lovely to listen to. The book is a good kick in the butt in times when we feel defeated and tired and don´t know how to go on. She encourages us to rise and remember our strengths. The book has helped me during a very difficult time and I am sure I will keep coming back to its wisdom and humour.

Brimming with first world problems

I listened to this with an open mind. I’d never read any of Brown’s books but was keen to learn what all the ‘buzz’ was about.
Unfortunately, this never hit the mark for me. By the end, I still didn’t have a clear understanding of what the rising strong process involves. I get the ‘face down in the arena’ bit, but I was left thinking that perhaps Brown doesn’t really understand adversity.
The anecdotes that were meant to serve as examples served only as a catalyst for some major eyerolling and the cry ‘meanwhile, some people have real problems!’
The examples included:
Arguing with your husband
Having a messy roommate (for one night!)
Someone sending you a passive aggressive email.
So hard to listen to when you’ve experienced real pain and the need to get up and face the world day after day despite it.

Both Confronting & Comforting

Brené's done it again, challenges, wisdom, examples and support in every chapter - don't read this book unless you're prepared to grow.

Amazing Insight!

This book is definitely worth listening too! Insight that will make you think, nod your head in agreement more than you think it will and then make you laugh out loud whilst slapping your knee. Brene tells it how it is - one of my all time favorites!
