‘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.'

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.

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

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

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.
