Dare to Lead
Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.
“I LOVE this book. I learned so much during my first listen via Libro.fm that I am going to read it again (this time in hardcover, with colleagues reading alongside so we can discuss). It's super-motivating and inspiring, but totally research-based. I feel that leaders at every type of organization would benefit from reading this. (Also: I got to interview Brené Brown about vulnerability and leadership in Feb. 2021 and it was a career/life highlight!) ”Janet, Avid Bookshop

The Gifts of Imperfection: 10th Anniversary Edition
Features a new foreword
“When I first heard of this book, I waved it off. I was 30, and the title sounded too self-helpy and didn't seem relevant to my life. By the time I reached the ripe old age of 40, the book was about to hit its tenth anniversary and Brené Brown was not just a household name but someone whose books, podcast, and talks have influenced me and millions of others. "The Gifts of Imperfection" is brief yet substantive, full of evidence-based information about how we can live a more full-hearted life. Brown is a researcher, and she uses results from her rigorous studies to come to conclusions about why we do what we do, and how we can stop self-sabotaging and begin living wholeheartedly. Highly recommend this audiobook! ”Janet, Avid Bookshop
The Art of Asking
How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help
By Amanda Palmer
Length: 11 hours 27 minutes
“What could an indie punk rock cabaret star (The Dresden Dolls), married to one of the world’s most celebrated fantasy writers (Neil Gaiman), teach the average person about asking for and accepting help? A lot, apparently! Personal stories turn into advice, vignettes turn into examples, revelations turn into promises; and before too long, The Art of Asking becomes a well-crafted roadmap for living your truth, advocating from the heart for what you need, and trusting in your community – your friends, your fans, and your family – to help provide it.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
