Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “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.

“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.

    Glennon is a good writer and her message is good. But it wasn’t for me...I’m sure this book is profoundly inspiring for women who need to build their confidence and figure out who they are. If you’re already there, you may find this book boring or even a little annoying.

  • Tiffany C.

    Cried on and off the entire time. A great book for feminists, women, mother's, daughter's, sister's, friends and for anyone that identifies with the LGBTQ community. It has a little something for everyone.

  • Dolores Q.

  • Veronica B.

    I loved it! It came at the perfect time in my life. I am forever grateful.

  • Patricia B.

    A book written from the heart that gives different perspectives on life. I loved it!

  • Caprice M.

    Wow. I connected with her perspective on so many levels. Every human should read this. We’d all better to ourselves and in return better to each other.

  • Kitkat

    Amazing book. Kept me interested the whole time. I took a lot of information out of this book and applied it in my life. I found it empowering. I now what to see what else the author has written.

  • Anonymous

    The best book I’ve ever read. This is a mantra, words to live by. It made me laugh and cry over and over. Thank you, GD.

  • Roberta H.

    No!!!! Heard it all before , a mishmash of religion and becoming a lesbian. I just can't listen how the author tells us how hard it was to to sit alone for 10 minutes at a time. Ugh! And more ugh! It's 2020 no one cares if your a lesbian. You're 40 years old and you realize not to trust google to tell you how to proceed with your life?
