DARING GREATLY by Brené Brown
Available now at Blackstone Audio.
From the Publisher:
Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives.
In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, her book argues that vulnerability is not weakness but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection. The book that Dr. Brown’s many fans have been waiting for, Daring Greatly will spark a new spirit of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities.
My Recording Experience:
When I was asked to narrate this book for Blackstone, it was suggested that I watch the author’s TED talks in order to get a feel for her speaking style. I have to admit, to dare greatly myself, that I have not been so intimidated to voice an author’s words in a long time. Brené Brown is truly one of the wisest speakers I’ve ever heard, and on top of that she’s wise in a way that feels like you’re just hanging out with one of your girlfriends that just gets you.
Her words have found a special place in my brain and heart and I hope that if you listen, I’ve done them enough justice that they’ll stick with you, too.
