Untamed

Stop Pleasing, Start Living: THE NO.1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER




Who were you before the world told you who to be? When women learn to please they forget who they are. Part inspiration, part memoir, Untamed will help all women dare to live a braver, authentic life. From the #1 NYT bestselling author of Love Warrior.

'This book will shake your brain and make your soul scream. I am so ready for myself after reading this book!' Adele
'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.'

Praise for Untamed

Untamed will liberate women - emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal.

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love

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

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

What an absolute guru of a woman ... Untamed is a sort of memoir, but unlike any you've ever read before ... Reading it is like receiving an intravenous drip of fist-pumping, adrenalised RIGHTNESS.

Elizabeth Day, author of How To Fail

This book will shake your brain and make your soul scream. I am so ready for myself after reading this book!

Adele

Remarkable ... Untamed arrived in my lap at exactly the right moment. A time and age where I'm constantly considering my own authenticity and confidence to simply be me.

Fearne Cotton

I cannot stop quoting this woman's wisdom. This book has inspired me through the misery of lockdown, and I will be re-reading it at least twice a year!

Bryony Gordon

One of my favourite writers

Laura Whitmore

This memoir is so packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today, what it means to be 'good' and what women will do in order to be loved. I swear I highlighted something in EVERY chapter.
