I'm not sure that the audiobook is 100% the same as the written book, but the audio was good. Brene has taken the time to understand vulnerability in her work in general and especially expresses the art of emotional vulnerability (as well as boundaries) in this audiobook. Literally, it's stuff we never think to do because not addressing our fear or hate initially blocks us from being able to connect in love with the people we interact with. Also, she has some of the most amusing stories. Great listen.
