In short this book is about helping you and your children bring balance to your life. This books is aimed for parents with school aged children. It’s good advice, but it assumes a life with access and free of complexity - so I proceed with caution when recommending it to others.

It’s nicely narrated. It’s fairly well paced. One of the author sounds a bit like George Clooney. A few moments it feels a bit “smug” or “corny” - but it’s really worth a listen.

I would suggest the power of a vulnerability for a first time Brene Brown listener and build up to this one.

The audio book is preformed by the author in a studio, alone, which contributes to a somber tone for this book. If you stick with it it, there are insightful thoughts at the end of the chapters. For example, in an academic tone Dr. Brene Brown voices her disagreement a poetic Dr. Toni Morrison quote on belonging. It starts off sounding like a lecture on why she believes Dr. Morrison is wrong. Eventually she does get to a deeper understanding of the context of Morrison’s quote, but it would of been nice if the audio came from Toni Morrison whom she had frequent conversations with or recounting this story to an audience with Oprah whom she mentions frequently.

The collective Joy and humility are lost in this particular format. It’s my preference to hear her work about people with audience responding to her storytelling.
