Over the years of working my way through Brene Brown's various talks and books, I've really been able to apply her teaching to my everyy day life and to be happier and have a more positive impact on those around me

Pretty much everything here is what you've heard if you've already got the book "Rising Strong". Reckoning, Rumbling, Revolution. Sewer rats and scofflaws.
The thing is, I got so much more from this book than I did from the actual basic book. Don't get me wrong; I liked the book, but this one seems to combine it with my favorite, "The Power of Vulnerability".
I believe it's because this is a long lecture performed in front of a live audience (as opposed to a dead one? You know what I mean...) and as such, Brown is in her usual, fantastically fine form. You get all the side-stories of the venerable researcher/storyteller; you get the audience response; you get the further elucidation on various points. You get the absolute warmth and humor.
Expect to learn how to rise strong on a daily basis, to rise strong from the big things that we can usually get crippled from. Grief, forgiveness, our creative and best, most divine selves.
Minor down and dirty Texan language, major joy and laughter raised to the roofs.
I loved this book and have already listened to it twice and expect to happily run to my therapist who is from the Brown neurobiology branch with all the points that I really want to discuss. The question and answer section at the end alone is worth the price.
We're hardwired for story, our brains expect it. Learn to write your own happily-ever-after, even though it means getting up after hard knocks and skinned knees.
After all, we're all just doing the best we can with what we have.
Now? I have this book...!

I've followed Brene's work for a long time. This 3 her snippet helped shed light on my personal work as well as gave me insight into her other work (parenting and forgiveness) .
The Q&A was spot on. If you're a fan, you won't be disappointed. If this is your first intro, then might as well start here!

Where does Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I thought I was buying the book but was actually a recording of the author talking at an event about the book. Still fun and insightful but a little disappointing considering the length and price!
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Brené's anecdotes about her own life were warm and relatable.
What about Brené Brown’s performance did you like?
Brené has a clear and emotive speaking voice. She speaks with conviction and clearly believes the messages she is putting across.

I will listen to this over and over for the rest of my time. With one listen I've been inspired, I've learnt, I've laughed and cried and changed for the better. Brené Brown as required reading for all would be a total blessing. It's all about love.
