    This is a sacred day to me The most important thing I ve ever written my new book UNTAMED is available for the first time TODAY.I m often asked why I don t publish booksoften My answer is this I never write a new book until I ve become a new woman Over the past few years, I became a new woman UNTAMED tells that story.At an event for LOVE WARRIOR, a woman walked into the room and the moment I saw her, three words filled my entire being There She Is I knew, from my roots, that she was This is a sacred day to me The most important thing I ve ever written my new book UNTAMED is available for the first time TODAY.I m often asked why I don t publish booksoften My answer is this I never write a new book until I ve become a new woman Over the past few years, I became a new woman UNTAMED tells that story.At an event for LOVE WARRIOR, a woman walked into the room and the moment I saw her, three words filled my entire being There She Is I knew, from my roots, that she was my person To honor that knowing to honor myself I dismantled and rebuilt my entire life Loving Abby and creating a life with her was the first decision I ever made not as a good girl, but as a free woman.UNTAMED is my deeply personal story of discovering, fighting for, and claiming the great love of my life But this book is not about finding your Abby It is about finding yourself.UNTAMED is about how we got caged by the world s expectations of us, and how we break free It is about how to reclaim yourself, love yourself, trust yourself and abandon others expectations so you can stop abandoning yourself.It s the story of how I learned, through my relationship with Tish, that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows her children how to bravely live It s about how I stopped being a martyr and started being a model.It s the story of how I learned through my divorce and blending my family that a broken family is one in which any member has to break herself to fit in And a whole family is one in which each member has the freedom to bring her entire self to the family table to remain whole and still belong.It s the story of how I learned to set boundaries, make peace with my body, channel my anxiety, and honor my anger It s about how I finally discovered the big deal about sex.It s about how when we stop pleasing and start living we become women who can finally look at ourselves dead in the eyes and say There She Is.Today I am asking you to pre order UNTAMED Even if you usually wait until a book hits the library, or buy it the week it s out, please consider ordering today.It matters to me and to other authors that you vote for our art by buying it as soon as you can It signals that there are people who believe in our work, which allows us to keep making it The UNTAMED team is a handful of fierce, dedicated women We have been working for two years in preparation for today Your pre order today meansthan I can tell you.Here s another reason to order today We are doing a special signed print run of UNTAMED that includes a beautiful page with the cover art and the vital question What Would You Do If You Trusted Yourself I am going to sign every copy of this limited printing Think of your people who are going through the thick in other words, all of your people and consider gifting them, and yourself, a special signed copy of UNTAMED Once this first printing is gone, there won t be anyWe don t know if the quantity will last two hours or two weeks, so please order for yourself and your people today Signed copies are available through independent bookstores, Barnes Noble and Books A Million HERE.In the coming weeks, as I sign each book in the limited print run, I will be sending my love and a personal blessing to each of you I don t know if that woo woo stuff works but it makes me so happy and thankful that each of these books will go from my couch to yours, my hands to yours, my heart to yours.When I finished writing, I sent UNTAMED to Liz Gilbert She read it and wrote to me This book will liberate women emotionally, spiritually, and physically I believe you were born to write this book It s true I finally freed myself enough to be able to say what I ve been desperate to say for my entire life.My dream is that since freedom, joy, and peace are contagious they will leap off each page of UNTAMED and into your hearts until each of us is free to live as the people we were born to be before the world told us who to be.I LOVE YOU I LOVE US.G

    2 Stars Did anyone else find this book to basically be the author patting herself on the back about how she is just nailing life at the moment The author should have just made a prologue that readListen up masses I have figured it all out because I msensitive than you and thus for just can understand the world better Also I know what you re thinking will I as a white woman address racism within this memoir And yes, of course, I have a whole chapter dedicated to it and I think I get2 Stars Did anyone else find this book to basically be the author patting herself on the back about how she is just nailing life at the moment The author should have just made a prologue that readListen up masses I have figured it all out because I msensitive than you and thus for just can understand the world better Also I know what you re thinking will I as a white woman address racism within this memoir And yes, of course, I have a whole chapter dedicated to it and I think I get a lot accomplished within those 16 pages Anyway once again my life is fantastic This novel reads like someone who visited India for a month gave meditation a bit of a whirl and is now feeling extremely cocky about their spiritual knowledge and must share it like they are new white lady Dalai Lama Smugness mixed with choppy chapters and these weird perfectly timed and poignant conversations someone is fudging the freakin fudge out of their story just made this not the book for me Honestly if you want to read a book where a middle age white lady lectures you on God and learning to be selfish just read Eat Pray Love it s the same thing but with better destinations

    Love Warrior is one of my all time favorite memoirs I ve never read an author be so honest about their flaws, so completely vulnerable and exposed to the world With everything out on the table, she delivers stories that are truly gut wrenching, inspiring, and ultimately uplifting I recommend it to 100% of my writer friends who are working on memoirs It s that good Untamed is the follow up to that book, and a lot has happened since then Notably, Glennon has divorced her husband and married a Love Warrior is one of my all time favorite memoirs I ve never read an author be so honest about their flaws, so completely vulnerable and exposed to the world With everything out on the table, she delivers stories that are truly gut wrenching, inspiring, and ultimately uplifting I recommend it to 100% of my writer friends who are working on memoirs It s that good Untamed is the follow up to that book, and a lot has happened since then Notably, Glennon has divorced her husband and married a woman It s immediately clear that she s also coming into this book from a much stronger, healthier state of mind For the most part, Love Warrior is about what it took to rise out of rock bottom Untamed is about what it s like to have learned.A majority of the book I d say 60% are the philosophies of Doyle as a woke feminist She does a lot of before and after, such as this is what I used to think and this is what I think now There are still revealing passages of vulnerability, which I find her greatest talent, but she also writes wonderfully from a position of strength Her metaphor of a caged cheetah is an excellent opening that sets the tone for the book and her philosophies.As for criticisms, I will say that most of the book is probably preaching to the choir As a feminist I didn t really need another rant on the depiction of women in magazines I agree with everything she says, but there s a brief stretch where it feels unnecessary to beat that dead horse.Unlike the gritty truth of Love Warrior, I feel some of the anecdotes in here get cheesy When describing her parenting strategies, for example, every line of dialogue comes out Leave it to Beaver perfect, with her teenage children leaping to disown their cell phones, pick up extra chores, and talk about their deepest feelings in a car full of peers I don t doubt she s a wonderful mother and I m sure her children are angels, but please I don t even have kids and I rolled my eyes.All in all, I think the book succeeds as a call to action, a form of group therapy, and poignant self reflection Women and men have bottled these feelings and been caged by them for centuries It s hard to read Doyle and not feel freed

positive back to negative By the end I was just glad to be DONE If this book was clearly a memoir I wouldn t have felt annoyed I often didn t buy her strategies in achieving emotional balance because she lacked balance in important areas of life true empathy for others.Glennon will ALWAYS put her needs and desires before others She demonstrated several times how she swung that pendulum from being a person who didn t know how to please herself to no longer pleasing anyone Glennon s selfish tone towards others was brutal rather than unflinching honest She was down right mean, righteous at times I began to wonder if Glennon had respect for anyone other than herself Does she realize that many women know who they are We don t all judge our value ourselves by the size of thighs Part of being a whole contributing human being is sometimes putting other people s needs first at cause , before our own.Glennon is not there yet.she still needs to prove that she s her own woman goddamnit Power to Glennon This review would make ZERO DIFFERENCE to Glennon She said herself, she doesn t give a rats ass about my opinion or what I think of her, anyway So how do people contribute back to her Where is her opening to hearing that there might be a reason some of us readers might the Glennon sin , feel she has a few things to still learn about the balance between being who we are without verbally purging righteousness onto others Glennon clearly states she only cares about herself over and over and over again.Yes this is a happy world with Glennon s savvy wisdom.She transferred one disorder over eating, purging, over drinking, trouble with the law to a self serving shaming others for not being like her PARTS WERE GOOD in the beginning until she chewed the human race to threads Her self righteous me me me ME FIRST no pleasing others rule became annoying I lost total respect I appreciated a few chapters in this book I liked her own discovery about parenting and where she went south in giving her son the message that his life studying for school, tests the next day, etc , wereimportant than his responsibility as a contributing member to the family After Glendon s realization that she was raising a self centered self serving kid she made corrections She began to demand his respect and contributions to the family Now her kid did the dishes after dinner she made the meal after all Glennon s a ha moments of parenting discoveries.that raising a privileged son wasn t doing him any long term service, was admirable I had much respect for Glennon s moral discovery I wished I had made that discovery myself when I was raising our daughters, myself I allowed our daughters to do their homework skip dishes because why because their life wellness out in their world wasimportant than them contributing to our family I did the fricken dishes I made the meals I did the cleaning Paul supported our family financially Hell I made their lunches drove them to their many activities every single day private independent schools, music lessons, sports, dance, theater, Hebrew school, etc I was their slave and I was wrong I never taught them to sincerely value and respect Paul and I Guess what Both daughters are successful in the world and independent but only one of them respects Paul and I fully and expresses it.So I felt that Glendon did have some very valuable insights into the role of parenting ButI never got the impression that she respected her ownparents She patted herself on the back about how great she was So I thought Glennon shared some useful tips about parenting from morality rather than kids accomplishments in the outside world.However, every time Glennon moved away from sharing her experiences and started preaching her views I lost total respect for her Glennon is not a talented compassionate INSPIRATIONAL or SPIRITUAL leaderHer lack of empathy and appropriate speaking skills fell apart I spent a couple of days trying to figure out what it was that she did that DROVE ME NUTS.She was self serving and annoying in her ME FIRST Philosophy Too much swinging that pendulum with her good girl bad girl themes Glennon is a recovered alcoholic A recovered bulimic A girl who had destroyed all her relationships at one time as well.I m happy Glennon found her own voice and did some repair work learned to look inward at her own needs and desires rather than self harm herself BUTI was incredibly embarrassed by many things she said and the tone in which she said them Even her words about being a feminist were cringe shaking off the wall RIGHTEOUS is as RIGHTEOUS is yuck It was her ASSUMPTION that most woman were just like her Only focusing on makeup clothes getting others to love us Glennon Doyle crossed the line into PUSHING HER RIGHTEOUSNESS on others One minute she talked about nurturing relationships and the next minute she slammed any person who called her on the telephone or sent her a text message for the gall of interrupting her life My God then she compared the last presidential race to the apocalypse What the hell I think this is the last book I ever plan to read by Glennon Doyle.She s not Eckhart Tolle, Bren Brown, Lama Surya Das, or Don Miguel Ruiz.This is a MEMOIR that bordered closely to PREACHING Glennon Doyle is a woman who took many years to find her own voice years of healing from self harm harming others as well She still has a few loose marbles about the totality of humanity..I don t want to live inside her ME FIRST bubble There are many shades of gray Life is not all black or white as Glennon would have us to believe She was down right mean to people who asked her questions Glennon Doyle is not a person I trust to teach me HOW TO BE A POWERFUL WOMEN 2.5 stars rating down

    Since I am African MexicanAmerican, I have a hard time reading memoirs sometimes especially when it is from the White Woman perspective, however I really enjoyed the story Glennon Doyle wrote Doyle is able to write about finding and being true to yourself but is able to drop gems of information even though she comes from a place of privilege which she acknowledges herself I want to give this book to every person I know to read with the hopes that they take away from it what I did which is let Since I am African MexicanAmerican, I have a hard time reading memoirs sometimes especially when it is from the White Woman perspective, however I really enjoyed the story Glennon Doyle wrote Doyle is able to write about finding and being true to yourself but is able to drop gems of information even though she comes from a place of privilege which she acknowledges herself I want to give this book to every person I know to read with the hopes that they take away from it what I did which is letting down your guard, being who you want to be, and having compassion for the world

    Did you hear choo choo sound of disappointment train Yes, I heard it, I ve been there, done that And can you feel the approaching steps of unpopular review yes, it s coming right now One step, two step, three step And here we are I m about to give two stars one of the books inspired and got so many great reviews from the readers I wish I could be one of them I wish I could carry a happy smile after reading this memoir and clap my hands to show my devotion and respect to the author Nope Did you hear choo choo sound of disappointment train Yes, I heard it, I ve been there, done that And can you feel the approaching steps of unpopular review yes, it s coming right now One step, two step, three step And here we are I m about to give two stars one of the books inspired and got so many great reviews from the readers I wish I could be one of them I wish I could carry a happy smile after reading this memoir and clap my hands to show my devotion and respect to the author Nope, it s not gonna happen Firstly I felt like I turned myself into a Foucault Pendulum because my feelings kept swinging between love and hate I didn t have so many negative and positive reactions to a book at the same time But unfortunately negativity defeated the power of positive thoughts The beginning of the book was so promising Glennon is strong woman recovered alcoholic, bulimic, humanitarian, activist, wife and mother of three falls in love At the first time in her life she knows the other person is the one somebody truly stole her heart and finding your soulmate is just a start for her self discovery and the beginning of self journey.I don t have any problem about Glennon s life choices and thoughts because I always show respect people s decisions about their own lives even though I don t like those decisions But sometimes putting someone s needs before your own doesn t mean you re sacrificing yourself or you re martyr of your damned path you chose for yourself It means GIVING and SHARING There is thin line between respecting yourself by choosing your own needs and being shellfish by always putting your own needs before someone else s In this book I didn t like the way of Glennon s treatment to her loved ones and I found her tone harsh, self righteous and close to be narcissist When I m reading the pages I feel like Taylor Swift s Me Me Me was playing over and over in my head At some parts way of telling her evolving life story was irritating I just visualized her as a religious leader who thinks her devoted fans, worshippers may start to scream Amen for each word comes out her mouth because she just drew a portrait of herself similar to this vision At that part 80 s Madonna s popular song started playing in my head with my alternated version Glennon, don t preach, I m in trouble deep, Glennon, don t preach I ve been losing sleep I am so happy her journey resulted well for her and she finally found her true happiness but her ways to earn that freedom in expanse to hurt the loved ones around her and the way of justifying her actions like Her way or high way kind of know it all communication style didn t work well for me Sorry that s not the inspirational story I ve been looking for maybe that s about my character and the way of looking to the matters are quite opposite I can accept the opposite opinions but that doesn t mean they re the right ones There are so many different approaches and so many different angles of the reality I know Glennon doesn t give any shit my opinion and anyone disagrees her meaningful, full of wisdom thoughts of hers But I still write, express and tell how I feel Sorry, it seems like I m not the right reader for this journey bloginstagramfacebooktwitter
