Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Daring Greatly by Brené Brown, read by Karen White.
Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative, or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable. Most of us try to fight those feelings - we strive to appear perfect.
In a powerful new vision, Dr. Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that in truth, vulnerability is strength, and when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability - from revealing our true selves - we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.
Daring Greatly is the culmination of 12 years of groundbreaking social research across every area of our lives, including home, relationships, work, and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous, to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.

Amazing perspective!

I absolutely loved this book. It touched me and many different ways as there were so many stories within the book that I could relate to regarding shame, guilt and vulnerability. It's an essential work Brenè does with her research and I can't thank her greatly enough for this contribution.

Absolute must read if you are working towards self healing or if you are looking for inspiration how to have compassion for other people, not to mention if you are working in this field or want to work in this field.

Thank you Brenè! Listening to your carefully written words filled me with inspiration, compassion for myself and more longing to dive deeper into my own research of human behavior and struggles. Thank you thank you thank you!

Hated the Voice

If you could sum up Daring Greatly in three words, what would they be?

Loved the content but hated the monotone of the robotic voice.

How could the performance have been better?

By being narrated by the author.

Earnestness destroys Brené's natural humour

Having already listened to The Power of Vulnerability, I was disappointed to find that that's Brene Brown presenting the identical material to this book to an audience, but that this version has a terrible narrator that really put me off. Her earnestness, emphasising her every single word, really irritated me, and at times I wondered if it was in fact a computer reading rather than a human being because it sounded so odd. It was really disappointing, and I would heartily recommend you choose The Power of Vulnerability over this - you get exactly the same material but presented in Brene Brown's engaging, humorous style, rather than in the strange stilted version this narrator offers, accidentally removing all humour from the book.

Narrator not ideal

I'm afraid the narrator was not good! I think Brene delivers the content with a much more engaging manner!

Offputting narrator

The narrator sounds like a computer reading it out: it's completely disconcerting. I like Brene Brown but I would enjoy this audiobook 100x more with a different narrator.
