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.'

'What an absolute guru of a woman' ELIZABETH DAY, author of HOW TO FAIL
'Here's my hunch: nobody's secure, and nobody feels like she completely belongs. Those insecurities are just job hazards of being human. On my deathbed, I'm not going to wish I had danced like JLo; I'm just going to wish I had danced more.'
On Mother's Day, 2002, Glennon Doyle was unmarried, addicted to drugs, booze, food and bad love.
But by a strange twist of fate, it was on this day that she discovered she was pregnant.
After twenty years of wilful self-destruction, how could Glennon rise to the challenge of looking after the helpless, innocent child growing within her, when she couldn't even look after herself?
This is the inspiring story of Glennon Doyle; the mother who, for the love of her child, was determined to change her life forever.
Carry On, Warrior is the life-changing book by Glennon Doyle about the power of the love we hold for our family, and for ourselves.

'EPIC' ELIZABETH GILBERT | 'BLEW ME AWAY' BRENÉ BROWN
... Just when Glennon Doyle was beginning to feel she had it all figured out - three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list - her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed.
A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, rock bottom was a familiar place to Glennon.
In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life. Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on.
Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring tale of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.
AN OPRAH BOOK CLUB SELECTION
Glennon Doyle zeigt uns, was Großes geschieht, wenn Frauen aufhören, sich selbst zu vernachlässigen, um den an sie gestellten Erwartungen gerecht zu werden, und anfangen, auf sich selbst zu vertrauen. Wenn sie auf ihr Leben schauen und erkennen: Das bin ich. Ungezähmt.
Um marido lindo e atencioso, filhos encantadores, o reconhecimento pelo sucesso profissional. O que mais Glennon poderia querer? A resposta é: mais, muito mais. Ela queria não ter tantas dúvidas, queria se comunicar melhor com o marido, queria apagar de sua história a bulimia e o alcoolismo, queria se encaixar nos padrões... queria que o marido não a tivesse traído e que o casamento não tivesse se revelado uma tábua de salvação tão fracassada.
Mas o que parece a maior das tragédias, acaba se tornando a grande chance de Glennon. A crise conjugal traz à tona seus velhos demônios e a obriga, pela primeira vez, a encarar francamente as questões que antes foram apenas sublimadas. Enquanto todos cobram dela uma decisão sobre o possível divórcio, Glennon se volta para si mesma em busca da própria voz: não a da jovem perfeita que ela um dia quis ser, não a da esposa cujo relacionamento fracassou, não a da mãe abnegada, mas, sim, a voz da mulher de verdade que sempre existiu por trás de todos esses papéis.
Glennon Doyle Melton é a mulher que talvez você conheça, a vizinha, a colega, a irmã de um amigo. Talvez seja você. Somos guerreiras revela não só a história de Glennon, mas a guerra diária travada pela mulher que busca simplesmente ser quem ela é — um relato corajoso que chama a atenção para o fato de que nascer mulher e existir plenamente é quase um ato revolucionário.
