This book is amazing, except it is the exact same content as the power of vulnerability, which is narrated by Berne Brown herself. The work just seems much deeper and the stories a lot richer when you hear it from the author directly. When I say they're the same I really mean it. Same stories, same content, same organization.

One thing I must say is that I do NOT like this rating system...this work is not a novel, and what does performance mean? The work is based on Brown's research. It expands on the YouTube videos. I wish we could all have the courage to work though the issues that she puts to paper (so to speak). I have read this book much the same way as I do many of the books like this, which are in my library--helter skelter and then go back to the beginning and read it beginning to end.
I study this work from a slightly different angle. Our imperfections are our gifts--what we bring to the table to make this a better place to live. Reading with an open heart is essential otherwise the person walks away disappointed and put off. Brown's work is not a how to. Her work does give real to life examples that requires us to listen and then do the work--does it speak to you and if so then search for your solution and do your work. She makes visible the shift of consciousness. Well worth the time.

I found this book really easy to listen to. I like the narrator's style. The book was a series of strories with a life application and a good dose of humour and down-to-earthness. I found it made a lot of sense. It is not a list of "how to"s which I found a refreshing change. I am planning to listen to it again to make sure I squeeze every last drop of value out of it...

I thought that the author had interesting perspective to give as she had been researching shame resilience such a niche area for such a long time. However, I didn't feel like the book added very much to my life and if anything complicates things which in reality are not that complicated in my opinion. Nevertheless, I did find the book uplifting and positive. However, the content just didn't resonate with me.

Absolutely loved it. Brene is a genius wrapped up in the girl next door demeanour. Brilliant, insightful and life transforming.

This is the 4th book of hers I have listened too. She shines a light on emotion from the inside out. If your life was a film, Brene would remove you as the main character and makes you the director. From here you can control and experience all that life is, not just participate in it.
