If you could sum up The Power of Vulnerability in three words, what would they be?
Comforting, Insightful, Fun
Have you listened to any of Brené Brown’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I haven't. I wish she were the narrator of all her audiobooks. I want to buy more of them, but I'm afraid to be disappointed!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Two things really struck me. The first was her assertion that we don't call shame "shame," and people want to avoid the subject. The second was her description of perfectionism as a "20-ton shield" we carry.
Any additional comments?
I don't think reading this in print would even compare to the listening experience. I'd hear it in my own voice - and this message is something that I needed to be "told."

I was initially disappointed that this was a live recording of Brene Brown teaching, but ended up loving the content!

I haven't enjoyed this book, I've loved it. I highly recommend it, Brene Brown is brilliant and possibly my new favourite Author, researcher on living life to the fullest. I've laughed endless times and been teary eyed from how close to home much of this information has been for me.
The book finishes with a quote by Theodore Roosevelt called "the man in the arena" it is my favourite of all time and this book epitomises it. Show up, put yourself out there, dare greatly, and know win or lose at least you tried and lived with authenticity, rather than sat on the fence of life and played it safe never experiencing what life truly has to offer.

Brene is so engaging. I laughed and cried like a mad woman in my car listening to this. She is so on point that i dont think anyone would struggle to find something to take away from this talk

TRUE!! I laughed, cried (and I’m a bloke), and gained so much insight about myself. I am now flowing in my creativity, pressing into joy, cultivating gratitude and allowing myself to be positively vulnerable (well, working on it). It has changed my life.
This audio will change the way you see yourself and how you deal with shameful, embarrassing or difficult situations.
It is as if Brené Brown is inside your heart and head and knows more about you than you do. If you chose to practice the guideposts presented in this book you will become more level headed and be an asset, whatever arena you are in. You will be a better friend to yourself and others.
Live a whole hearted life, say yes to vulnerability :)
NB: At the time of writing this review I have listened to the audio through at least 6 times. More if you count the times I have flicked back a chapter or two to re-listen. I also have more bookmarks in it than any other book.
You'll Laugh, You'll Cry, It'll Change Your Life!!

I loved this audio book and have listened to it probably 300 times since I purchased it. Brene's voice makes it so much mor enjoyable than when others read her work; I have nevet gotten thru one read by someone else.
Do yourself a favor!
