"The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. The author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers 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, Brene Brown writes, can be our greatest call to courage, and rising strong our clearest path to a wholehearted life"--
"With her 2010 TED talk on the power of vulnerability (over 18 million views), her bestselling books on the transformative gifts of shame and vulnerability, and her inspiring call for wholehearted living, Brene Brown has changed the cultural conversation. Her work has been embraced by Oprah Winfrey and corporate leaders alike making her a highly sought after public speaker. For Brene, the conversation about vulnerability and shame naturally evolves into a discussion of bravery--its origins, its catalysts, its chemistry. How we are brave. What constitutes bravery. What activates the impulse to be brave. And how to recognize where our own "hero's journey" begins--in the depths of failure, disappointment, heartbreak, and grief--and how, once we grapple with our story, we are able to rise from those depths and determine how we want our story will end"--

I'm not sure that the audiobook is 100% the same as the written book, but the audio was good. Brene has taken the time to understand vulnerability in her work in general and especially expresses the art of emotional vulnerability (as well as boundaries) in this audiobook. Literally, it's stuff we never think to do because not addressing our fear or hate initially blocks us from being able to connect in love with the people we interact with. Also, she has some of the most amusing stories. Great listen.

Self-help that actually helps! A fun listen, this relatable book is read by the author who offers techniques that can help you raise self-assured young people, communicate well in your relationships and figure out what to do if you mess up at work.

Fantastic. Listening to Brené read her work is the only way to take it in. She is hilarious and hearing her speak her experiences and wisdom is a lot of fun and very educational.

Brene as always does a great job at telling stories. Very relevant topics for people who want a more out of life.

I've had a lot of trouble with this title. Tried to check it out twice, and in both cases it wouldn't download. Is there something up with the file?

I chose the only option, mp3, but then it downloaded as an open office file. Unsure how to listen.

Not bad. Funny in parts. Useful here and there. I found it ultimately enough for me about half-way through. I can see that some would *really* like it.
