#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 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.

Some books shake you by the shoulder while others steal your heart. In Untamed, Glennon does both at the exact same time. Brené Brown

This memoir is so packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today, what it means to be good, and what women will do in order to be loved. I swear I highlighted something in EVERY chapter. Reese Witherspoon

Doyle might just be the patron saint of female empowerment. . . . Here she inspires other women to listen to their intuition and break free of what cages them. . . . Her memoir has a message as clear as a go signal: Find and honor your truest self. People (Book of the Week)

Reading Glennon Doyle s memoir, Untamed, is diving into an adventure of what we can become. We collectively grow stronger as we are more willing to ask hard questions. Ms.
 
Filled with hopeful messages . . . encourag[ing] women to reject the status quo and follow their intuition . . . This testament to female empowerment and self-love, with an endearing coming-out story at the center, will delight readers. Publishers Weekly
 
She is a terrific storyteller. . . . Whether discussing her children or the world outside, challenging conformity, confronting misogyny, or standing up to religious bigotry, her goal as a memoirist (and as a person) is to defy expectations and to help others break out of their cultural cages so that everyone can find their own version of humanity. A bracing jolt of honesty from someone who knows what she wants to say and isn t afraid to say it. Booklist (starred review)

An emotional gut punch . . . an in-depth look at a courageous woman eager to share the wealth of her experiences by embracing vulnerability and reclaiming her inner strength and resiliency. Doyle offers another lucid, inspiring chronicle of female empowerment and the rewards of self-awareness and renewal. Kirkus Reviews

This book is amazing, inspiring, fun to read, heartbreaking as well as heartwarming - just everything you need for your soul. Glennon speaks from her heart and soul straight into my heart and soul. I‘ve re-read this book, listened to the audio book and gifted this book to so many of my friends, who love it as well. If I could only read one book for the rest of my life - this is it!

Bewertet: Buch (Gebundene Ausgabe)

Für mich war das Buch eine echte Achterbahnfahrt der Emotionen und manchmal habe ich mich gefragt „Warum sind Menschen nur so grausam?“. Leider fand ich das Buch ein bisschen unübersichtlich gestaltet und ich hätte mir eine gewisse Chronologie der Ereignisse gewünscht. Stattdessen hat Doyle die Einteilung in Themen vorgenommen, wodurch sich manche Dinge teilweise gedoppelt haben. Trotzdem ist das Buch ein absolutes Herzensbuch und ich empfehle es allen, die ab und zu an sich zweifeln und allen, die die Geschichte einer mutigen Frau hören wollen die getan hat was ihr Herz sagt und nicht was die Gesellschaft von ihr erwartet. Von mir gibt es 3,5/5 Sterne für „Untamed“.
