Publisher's Summary

A groundbreaking women's leadership expert and popular conference speaker gives women the practical skills to voice and implement the changes they want to see - in themselves and in the world.

In her coaching and programs for women, Tara Mohr saw how women were "playing small" in their lives and careers, were frustrated by it, and wanted to "play bigger". She has devised a proven way for them to achieve their dreams by playing big from the inside out. Mohr's work helping women play bigger has earned acclaim from the likes of Maria Shriver and Jillian Michaels, and has been featured on the Today show, CNN, and a host of other media outlets.

Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In gave many women new awareness about what kinds of changes they need to make to become more successful; yet most women need help implementing them. In the tradition of Brené Brown's Daring Greatly, Playing Big provides real, practical tools to help women quiet self-doubt, identify their callings, "unhook" from praise and criticism, unlearn counterproductive good girl habits, and begin taking bold action.

While not all women aspire to end up in the corner office, every woman aspires to something. Playing Big fills a major gap among women's career books; it isn't just for corporate women. The audiobook offers tools to help every woman play bigger - whether she's an executive, community volunteer, artist, or stay-at-home mom.

Thousands of women across the country have been transformed by Mohr's program, and now this book makes the ideas and practices available to everyone who is ready to play big.

    "Life-altering in all the good ways"
    Would you listen to Playing Big again? Why?

    Yes I'm already on my second listen and I brought the paperback too so I could refer to the journalling questions. Every now and then I come across a book that makes a huge impact on me and this is one. I will be referring back to it many times I'm sure, and I have already recommended it to many friends.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Playing Big?

    Identifying the Inner Critic has been the biggest moment for me so far but I still have work to do. I love how Tara doesn't just talk about the theory of an Inner Critic but also gives you real practical tools for identifying and characterising that voice so that you can be more aware of your default self-criticisms and what they really mean.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Inner Critic chapter and the Inner Mentor chapter are mind blowing; plus the chapter on the two different types of Fear and also Leaping.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Playing Big?

    I have already applied many of the breakthroughs I've had to my personal and professional life; particularly in taking Leaps, and unhooking from Praise and Criticism. I was also surprised by many things I learnt from exploring my Inner Critic and Inner Mentor -and this process has helped me approach pretty much everything in my life with more calm and a greater compassion for myself.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so grateful I found this book. If you struggle with self doubt, uncertainty with your purpose or anxiety about feedback then I am certain this book will help you, especially if you are a woman. It is smart, practical and also has a nice balance of spiritual content. I recommend it to anyone.

    "Amazing book!"

    This book is in my top five all-time masterpieces. A week into reading this book I watched my life shift enormously. If I could give this book to every woman on the planet I would. And I just might.

    "Helped inspire me to make my biggest move yet"

    I love Tara Mohr and Playing Big! I listened to it twice and I'm sure I'll be going back for more to feed my brain and soul with all the wisdom. I listened to Playing Big and then to Keep It Real by Leslie Karen Hammond and I finally decided to live my purpose in a way that has always been scary to me. I wrote a book (in editing as I write this) and am becoming a public speaker! True, I'm used to being on stage as a performer, but speaking my truth to help others is totally different. I'll be Playing Bigger now thanks to Tara and Leslie. If you happen to be one of those people who doesn't like to "speak up", if that's your fear, check out "Keep It Real" after you listen to this one. It's not an audiobook, but it is available on Amazon... amazon...https://smile.amazon.com/Keep-Real-Afraid-Speak-About/dp/0983634424/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1477396907&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=keep+it+real+leslie+karen+hammon

    "Infusion of Wisdom!!! Phenomenal!!!"

    I absolutely LOVED Playing Big! Tara Mohr gives us an depth, priceless information and tools we can useful to delve into ourselves to find our path to our calling(s). Not only does she provide information, but intentionally walks us through it so we can take action NOW. Powerful, inspiring and divine. I've read many other personal development books, but this content is beyond what out there. I can't praise it enough. And it was an added bonus to have Tara as the narrator. I followed with the paperback book. You'll want to do the same. Phenomenal all around!!

    "Interesting, empowering, a good read."

    I loved this book overall. It helped me realize and to cut down on my self deprecating ways and think about the person that I want to be. I have listened to it two times and will probably listen to it again. The author narrates the book - I do like her tone and pace. I was a little distracted at first by her voice, as it is young sounding, and the way she pronounces some words seem youngish. However I am sure other people not as sensitive would ever notice. Content far out-weighs this.

    "Fantastic"

    There's a lot out there in the guise of "self-help" that's just rhetoric and bunk. This is not that. I don't review very often but this book is a must listen. Just get it.

    "Insightful and Empowering"
    Where does Playing Big rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best audiobook I have ever heard. It was so thoughtfully written and compassionately spoken aloud that I felt I was listening to a kind and wise old friend.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Incredibly novel ideas that I could understand and implement immediately. I've already seen benefits in my life due to changes in my thinking inspired by this book. I've shared what I've learned with so many other women (and some men!) who are facing a myriad of challenges.


    Have you listened to any of Tara Mohr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but now I'll be looking out for her other books.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Playing Big?

    There are so many, but the first one that comes to mind is the way I now react to that inner critic voice in my head. Instead of listening to it or getting mad at myself for having such negative thoughts in the first place, I have compassion for the voice. I say, "Hello friend. I must be on the verge of doing something very exciting because you're showing up and being a worry-wart. I know you just want to keep my safe. Thanks for the alert, but I'm okay and I've got this." It's worked wonders for me!


    Any additional comments?

    I want to give this book as a gift to every woman I know. Thank you Tara for having the courage to follow your gift and sharing your insights with the world. I am better for having listened to them!

    "Empowering and resourceful!"

    This book has so many wonderful insights! I love how well structured it is, with clear list, bullet points and journaling questions at the end of each chapter. I can't wait to start a small support team/ book club to work through it together.

    Thank you!

    "Worth a Second Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Playing Big to be better than the print version?

    The audio book is so good, that I bought the Kindle book so I could reread, reconsider, and reflect on those points that were most relevant to me. This is a book that I will come back to as a reminder to the call to a fuller, more rewarding life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Playing Big?

    There are two "voices" that the author introduces in this book - the Inner Critic and the Inner Mentor. I know that critic well, but that older, wiser inner voice is a whisper. Mohr offers a visualization exercise (which can also be found on her website) that helped me envision this persona of me 20 years into the future. Powerful and inspiring.


    Have you listened to any of Tara Mohr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Tara Mohr book, however, I had heard interviewed on Todd Henry's podcast, The Accidental Creative, and that is what led me to buy the audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is relevant to any woman who regardless of age and circumstance. I am 65, twice retired, working full time for a non-profit, and am considering how to contribute as an elder.
