Audio Book Summary

#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 (Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book 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 women—emotionally, 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: Wasn’t it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontent—even 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 voice—the 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 world’s 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 member’s 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.

    Reminded me ALOT of Girl, Wash Your Face. A little too..... cutesy for my taste but a “light” read nonetheless. I always enjoy when a book is narrated by its author.

    The message/s behind this book are great. I was not a fan of her attitude towards some things and her cynicism at times. I felt a lot of topics were repetitive and am sad to report I had a hard time finishing this book. I can see how it could be encouraging and empowering, I just didn’t like the tone it was delivered through. Or the almost elitist way she told some of her stories.

    I loved absolutely everything about this book. Glennon is so wise and still so human. She’s raw and I just relate to her words so much. Then having her narrate as well was a wonderful touch. I highly recommend everyone read/listen to this.

    Glennon has lifted a veil from my eyes, or rather helped to remove it fully. I’ve already begun a new journey of self discovery and growth but she has enlightened me, helped me see things I was too naive to see before. She had me crying within the first hour and sporadically throughout, laughing all throughout... I also felt enraged at times and empowered at others. She is.. well she just is... I love this book, her story, the wisdom she has whispered into my ear via this audiobook and most of all... I love that she has inspired me in a way I haven’t been inspired in so very long. My fire has been reignited and I will let it burn endlessly! Thank you Glennon for this treasure!
