Publisher's Summary

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. The author of the number-one New York Times best sellers Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection tells us 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, Brené Brown writes, can be our greatest call to courage and rising strong our clearest path to deeper meaning, wisdom, and hope.

Learn to live your life with compassion, integrity and authenticity.

Brene Brown's books provide practical processes and actions that when incorporated into your life support you in living a more authentic life. This book is no exception to that. The listener will learn the Rising Strong process to put into practice. This builds on her other books but it is new material and new stories. It is NOT a rehash of previous work as so many authors do when they write multiple books.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn to lead a life that is full of compassion, integrity and authenticity. Also, I would recommend this to any business leader who wanted their business to be a place for innovation and creativity to thrive.

A Gem, But Not Her Best

Sure, I'll say it--I couldn't wait for this audiobook to come out, especially since it's narrated by Brene Brown herself (skipped "Daring Greatly" as I couldn't stomach Karen White's performance. Funny, she's done fine in other things).
I wasn't disappointed; not by a long shot. Who doesn't need to learn how to fail? Everything is covered in this book: Grief, fear, her (neurotic/humorous) search to find that people are doing the best they can with the tools they have, courage, racism, love.
But along with all of it is: Daring, vulnerability, imperfection, shame. All previously done books.
Don't get me wrong. It's information that can be listened to and used time and time again, just expect to hear some of the stories you've heard before if you're a big time fan. And expect to hear it in a bit of a choppy delivery. This is a reading, not a TED talk, so there are only a few casual, intimate moments. Mostly they come when she's relating personal stories, and they're to die for! I do so love the goofball Texan in her!
All in all, I'm very happy to have gotten this (I mean, obviously. I listened to it right away). It'll help me as I submit my novel, and receive rejection after rejection after rejection...
But "The Power of Vulnerability" is still my favorite; I think Brene Brown really, really shines in that Speech.
