Biography & Autobiography. Self-Improvement. Nonfiction. HTML:#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER OVER TWO MILLION COPIES SOLD! Packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today.Reese Witherspoon (Reeses Book Club Pick)
In her most revealing and powerful memoir yet, the activist, speaker, bestselling author, and patron saint of female empowerment (People) explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet others expectations and start trusting the voice deep within us.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY O: The Oprah Magazine The Washington Post Cosmopolitan Marie Claire Bloomberg Parade Untamed will liberate womenemotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal.Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love

This is how you find yourself.

There is a voice of longing inside each woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends. We hope all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives and wonder: Wasnt it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontenteven from ourselves.
For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her own discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. But she soon realized they had come to her from within. This was her own voicethe one she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be. Glennon decided to quit abandoning herself and to instead abandon the worlds expectations of her. She quit being good so she could be free. She quit pleasing and started living.
Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each members ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is.
Untamed shows us how to be brave. As Glennon insists: The braver we are, the luckier we get..

My full review can be succinctly stated using the following quotes of other reviewers:
- "For the first 50 pages, she had me totally on board and I was enjoying her story and her message. But then the completely self-righteous (and yet wholly indeterminate) lecturing about every buzz-word topic on the planet started," and
- "My thoughts and feelings changed ‘several’ times - from positive to negative - back to positive- back to negative!!! By the end.... I was just glad to be DONE!" ( )

I haven't read any of Doyle's other books, nor do I know much about her. I picked this up at random at the thrift store.

Be who you are. Let others be who they are. We'll all be happier for it.

That's this book in a nutshell. And I loved it. A few of the chapters are a bit redundant, it's a little self-focused (although it is a memoir, so there's that), which is why it loses a half star for me.

In this world, in this country, in this time where half the people feel the need to control the other half, where old white men don't want to trust women to make decisions about their own bodies, where many folks want to dictate how others express their sexuality, where a small minority want to force their beliefs about how to live life, more people need to read this book.
