On The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting, Dr. Brené Brown invites us on a journey to transform the lives of parents and children alike. Drawing on her 12 years of research on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, she presents ten guideposts to creating what she describes as "wholehearted" families where each of us can continually learn and grow as we reach our full potential.
A highly worthwhile read

Not a real audiobook...
To Audible: First, this book is not a real audiobook. There is no chapter, this a single recording with no well defined section.
About the book itself: the author is mostly speaking about her life with her children. There is no bullet point. What it means is that unless you have similar experiences with your children, you can hardly relate to her own examples. This is very dispappointing especially knowing that she got a ph.d. At this of your academic training, you must be able to organize and transfer the information in a much clearer manner.
For me, listening to this "recording" was no different than listening to any regular mother during a BBQ.
