Description

'Untamed will liberate women - emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal.' (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love)

Who were you before the world told you who to be?

Part inspiration, part memoir, Untamed explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of the world, and instead dare to listen to and trust in the voice deep inside us. From the beloved New York Times bestselling author, speaker and activist Glennon Doyle.

*****

For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her 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 soon she realised they had come to her from within. This was the voice she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions and social conditioning. Glennon decided to let go of the world's expectations of her and reclaim her true untamed self.

Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanising 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 also the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honour our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts.

Untamed shows us how to be brave. And, as Glennon insists, 'The braver we are, the luckier we get.'

Review quote

A brilliant memoir-slash-essay collection about what it means to be a fully realised woman * Elizabeth Day, author of How To Fail * If you've ever said yes when your heart screamed no. If you've ever felt you were living in a box of someone else's making. If you've ever wondered "what if...?", Glennon Doyle's Untamed will answer the questions you didn't know you'd asked. I can't stop thinking about it. * Sam Baker, author of The Shift * This book will give you the courage to change your ways /quit your job / move away / cut *that* person out of your life or [insert any huge scary change] * Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Method * Untamed will liberate women - emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal. * Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love * Some books shake you by the shoulders while others steal your heart. In Untamed, Glennon does both at the exact same time: Wake up. I love you. * Brene Brown, PhD, author of the NYT #1 bestseller Dare to Lead *
