Audio Book Review Backbone Power: The Science of Saying ‘No’ Audio Book By Dr. Anne Brown Audio Book Review by Stephen Barham
Who am I? I am an Emotional Researcher. I have a background in Psychosomatic Phenomena. Dr. Brown and I follow each other on Twitter. I often comment on her tweets. She asked me if I would do a review of the audio book version of her work, “Backbone Power, The Science of Saying ‘No’”. Which teaches information and tools for dealing with Codependency and Relationships. I was happy and honored to do so.
The subject of “people pleasing” is emotional. It has many emotional components. What connects and resonates for me was the emotional aspect and how the people involved are affected, bothered, and even confused. It shows. I think Dr. Brown gives a good delivery of the subject matter, and from her experience as a Psychotherapist and Coach.
Synopsis: Dr. Brown gives a frank direct approach to the subject of “People Pleasing”, and a path to bring about positive changes. She introduces the three “Tools” of her method in a preliminary section of this audio book, and proceeds to build and deliver descriptions, and explanations of the problems involved and how to apply the “Backbone Tools”, with examples from real client and therapist discussions, which I found interesting and could see the emotional content involved.
Thoughts on the audio production: The sound is very good. Dr. Brown delivers a clear presentation with a frankness to be appreciated in a tough subject to discuss.
Overall: I would recommend this audio book as it lays a foundation to work from, goes into details, and real life dialog, with homework to engage the listener to bring about a positive change. The hard copy has very good reviews as well, be sure to check it out. This is a 2 hour 52 minute abridged but thorough version of the book.
Here are links to Dr. Brown’s website, and a link where to get the audio book. Well worth the listen. Thank you for reading my review, I hope you find it helpful...
