Glennon Doyle

Untamed by Glennon Doyle Book Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • OVER TWO MILLION COPIES SOLD! “Packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today.”—Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s Book Club 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.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY O: The Oprah Magazine • The Washington Post • Cosmopolitan • Marie Claire • Bloomberg • Parade • “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.

Awesome. I loved this book it’s thought provoking and insightful. Awesome read😊

Could not put this down. Would recommend this book to anyone who needs a practical and spiritual perspective on what it is to be a multifaceted woman in 2021. The chapters are philosophical, theoretical, and mystical. Easy to read and impossible to not feel every moment described. Beautifully written, necessary for all

Second Read even better than my first.. I have read this book again, a year after the first time. It’s even better the second time… Gained wisdom each read. Mesmerizing, inspiring prose, that is witty honest, and very familiar. What she says, I think most of us have felt. Glennon, is able to put it all into words with endearing honesty and freedom..

Untamed feedback. This author has retained the highly moralistic self-righteous voice of the model Christian wife and mother. I found this to be didactic and overly self involved providing less of the magic than what appears in some spots along the way when she is more honest and not self-aware. It lacks humor and is often shouting orders at the reader to follow. My favorite part is at the end when she finally talks about someone other than herself and showcases Abby. This reveals her own foibles and shows that she actually has something to learn from others.

Therapy 101. If you’ve never been to therapy, you may enjoy this book as a quick start guide. If you find it to hold many answers for you, you may want to enjoy the real and sustaining benefits of psychotherapy yourself. I found it to be repetitive, preachy, and directed to an audience of people like herself (privileged women struggling with self acceptance). I do think it has value for a specific audience in that it covers basic concepts of self acceptance, mindfulness and making intentional choices.

.. Inspiring!

Better than I imagined. Multiple friends have recommended this book but I was taking my time getting around to reading it. I wish I wouldn’t have waited. Glennon drops some gems that will resonate with me forever. This book is about change, love, growth, and the permission to set yourself free from so many of the burdens of life.

This books has absolutely fallacious theolgo. This book is universalist and tries to convince you that you are GOD. The inner knowing is demonic in nature. Please avoid this book

Just incredible. Loved every story. Must read!

Untamed. READ THIS BOOK! This book blew my mind. The way Glennon talks in metaphors speaks to me and my brain. I felt understood by her. This book is phenomenal, and I think everyone should read it.

untamed. not relatable at all. very boring.

I love this book!. I learned a lot from reading this and I recommend anyone who identifies as a woman reads this book 10/10 love love love

The Best. The first book that ever truly spoke to my soul. I feel validated, understood, and human. Not broken. I always knew I was a cheetah.

Untamed-It’s honest!. I highly recommend.

Cheerful but Choppy. Lovely upbeat book full of insight learned through experience. It did feel like the stories jumped around as it is more of a collection of experiences than a single story. But, very enjoyable to read. Very positive and encouraging.

another woke lecture. Glennon Doyle is a gifted writer. Unfortunately I couldn’t stomach the woke, predictable “i deserve to be happy”, “everything’s about me”, and the “everyones a racist” chapters. For someone who wants to transcend judgement by she certainly casts judgement on others. Her hypocrisy is so sickening, I couldn’t finish the book.

A story of becoming a truer version of you.. Evolution is my word for the season. Glennon’s story of becoming, of “I am”, spoke strongly to me for I have always fought the Knowing and tried to fit in with what was right at that moment. When I was in my 20s, I married knowing he was not a man that I would be able grow with. I walked away when I was ready. When I was 30, I became engaged to the man who impregnated me to keep me around. I walked away when I was ready. Now, I am 42. On my 40th birthday I declared that this decade was for me. Glennon’s story resonates true to that declaration.

Annoying. Author seems to be the kind of person who finds a woke story in every minute detail in life. The over glorification of feelings and prioritizing oneself is small minded and an oversimplified philosophy. Not all feminism is created equal, this is exactly the kind of toxic feminism we don’t need.

This book 🌟. This helped me so much, I’m terrible at reviews but this is a must read if you’re trying to find yourself and hear another persons story. Her story is so true and so worth reading. Brought tears to my eyes.

Remember you’re a GD cheetah.. This is a book women who don’t know what they need need to read. Period. I felt energy and inspiration I haven’t felt in years. Thank you, Glennon.

Stunning from start to finish. Glennon Doyle has helped me sink into my knowing more than I ever have. Her writing is a feast for the mind. She writes with such vivid emotion and logic and clarity. I hope one day I get to write the way she does. With conviction and fearlessness.

So many gems!. I’ve never read a book that I could relate so much to as a woman. Her writing is refreshing and inviting. I’m looking forward to read more from Glennon

My new #1!. This book just topped my all time favorites list. A list which has had the same number 1, for 30 years. Thank you Glennon Doyle, for reminding women everywhere that we are not crazy. We are goddamn Cheetahs.

Very relatable. This book has taken many words out of my mouth. Thought I could never put into words. I felt alone and like the only one with certain thoughts but now I know I know I’m not alone. Reading this made me feel like I’ve known Glennon all my life.

Glen on knows all. I did not like this book at all. I really had to force myself to finish the second half. Glenn on is very preachy (not about religion) and comes off like a “know-it-all”. She touches on all the very important social issues of the current times but doesn’t say anything new. It comes off like she’s just wanting to be known as “woke”. She acts like she invented the ideas of meditation, intuition, integrity, and so many more. We all know these thing exist so for her to rename them and claim them as new is strange. While I agree with most of her ideas and opinions, she doesn’t offer any new perspective and her short stories are boring. She seems like she would be a very bossy person. Someone who just stares at you and says “trust me I know” as if you don’t also know. But then she preaches about living life how you know you should. Contradicting. This is perhaps a good book for older generations who are “stuck in their ways” about social issues and family structure. I found it boring.

Great book. Really honest and makes you take a deep look at yourself

Self help-ish memoir. Easy to read, good but wouldn’t read it twice.

Overhyped. Read anything else.. Not sure why this book has been hyped up so much. The first section was decent. But, then it turns very preachy (even though it’s a memoir??). The 5 page brief essay on racism in the third section -to stay relevant- was incredibly insulting.

Every woman needs to read this. I can’t say anymore than that

Love. Life changing

Speechless. Raw. True. Beautiful writing. Loved every second of being indulged in this book 🙏🏼🤍

Truth. Plain and simple truth.

Inspiring, Empowering & Beautiful!. I really enjoyed this book. I felt almost every chapter had a nugget that I could walk around with and ponder. I usually like books that you read from beginning to end that tell a story. I had to adjust to realize that her style of writing isn’t that way and it’s gloriously written in a way only Glennon could tell stories that are so wonderful. Everyone I let borrow it is in love with her heart and wisdom.

So perfect, just what I needed to hear. Sooo good! It’s like she knows all the things about me that I do not know about myself. This book is exactly what we need in this world right now. If only the capital patriarchy would read it.

Untamed. Such a good book! I cried so many times because Glennon was able to capture my exact thoughts and feelings in countless situations through her own experiences. It was eye opening, brave and courageous and truly life changing.

Oh my…. This one takes herself way too seriously. Haven’t all of us women tried on different personas? Wiggled ourselves into different clothes, hair, makeup, men/women and marriages (if we be so incompatible). I only got through the first couple of chapters, (should have got the preview) so it may have improved. But I’m almost 70, and sure, there are regrets in my younger years. The important thing is not to dwell on them. Become someone you love.

untamed. This book is like a long conversation with a good friend: sometimes deeply connecting, sometimes curious, different, disagreeing, but overall very real.

Horrid slog. Horrible, endless, condescending preaching from a rich, privileged white American woman who sees herself as a victim-turned-victorious-fighter against the horrors she suffered (paranoid about staying skinny and pretty, run-of-the-mill addiction to mild drugs and alcohol, or staying in a marriage just for the kids). People have suffered and endured far worse and preach far less.

Life changing!. I thought I was immune to the taming, the bigotry, the misogyny. This thought provoking book gave me the opportunity to examine my life, my beliefs, my training and my taming. I am so thankful for the women that are courageous enough to be vulnerable, live in the arena as Brené would say, and lead the way for the rest of us.

Yes!!. Each story was powerful. Deeply appreciate the truth and vulnerability. Love love loved!!

Grateful. I feel like this book was written for me. To have the same thoughts and feelings, to know that it’s ok.

Awesome. Love

Self help-ish. Cliche. I wanted to like it.. I can’t.

Becoming Untamed. I love how relatable this book is! An easy and quick read about everything I’ve ever felt.

Wish I could read this again & again. Love this book, such a fast read.

A must read for every woman. I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to relate to her/ this book because I’m 20 and straight but it was highly recommended by so many people I gave it a try. It was impossible to put down and such a good read. The core of her message is applicable to all women and I’ve been recommending it to every woman in my life. Loved it!!!

Favorite book of all time. This book is just phenomenal! It had made me feel unpowered I highly recommended this for people that need to know if they are worth it or if there looking for a great book!

A wonderful combination of deep truths & fun. Every anecdote taught me something about myself - past me, current me, and future me - as well as about society & family. Glennon does not preach. She reveals. And as she reveals what she sees, it helps me to see not only what she sees but also what I see and what I want to see.

Untamed. Phenomenal. Breathtaking. Must read!

No thanks. This was the first book in years I could not finish. The flow was choppy and her tone was incredibly patronizing and whiny. I usually try to finish all books, even those I don’t love or even like but I couldn’t finish this one. Waste of time!

The PERFECT book for my year of 50!. Amazing insights and wonderful stories. Some parts will speak directly to you and others may not. Regardless, you will learn and grow.

A must read. I wanted to read it again before I even finished it. It made me feel seen and understood.

Repetitive But Deep. I read this very quickly as there are parts that can be skipped over due to repetition. I felt inspired by her experiences and her choices. I loved the honesty. Laugh out loud funny, very relatable. Easy reading but great depth.

Repetitive. Good writer, nice thoughts but was too repetitive and religious for me to truly enjoy.

Revelation/Revolution. Wow! Came across this book while searching for my own answers and needing guidance...within the first 100 pages, I knew I was meant to read this book! I didn’t want to put it down. The openness and directness with which Ms Doyle has written, has left me in awe. She has written, things I’ve felt and wanted to believe in my gut, for so many years, in the vocabulary or words I wasn’t able to find nor could express! Her incredible journey of self-discovery and insight has given me the courage to explore my own “KNOWING”. Thank you for sharing this with me and the world!

Beautiful and inspiring. Untamed has left me in awe. My mind was blown with the life lessons each chapter had to offer. A must read for sure, again and again.

I’ve never felt so seen. This book was “wow” and “ah-haaaa” moment after “ah-HAAAA” moment. It perfectly illustrated in fantastic imagery and stories, feelings and questions and frustrations hat have plagued me my whole life. A must read for any person who has ever felt boxed inappropriately. A must read for every human, I think.

Must read!. I read Untamed like a cheetah in the wild, and then I read it all over again! Amazingly beautiful, raw and real. Well done Glennon!

Untamed. Extraordinary, insightful, beautiful, heart-warming and truly inspiring!!!!

Easy to see why it’s so loved. The writing style was casual and made it comfortable to read, while forming a quick bond with the author, however the messages within were not new to me, nor were they motivating for me. I can see how many could relate and use her words to inspire change in their own lives, however. All in all, not a book I will re-read, but for the right person it can be a good recommendation.

Was interesting but repetitive. It is a very inspiring book with lots to think about. I had gotten half way through before there is so many ways you can say “do what you want in life” before it gets repetitive. Could not finish it. Written lovely, but got bored with the same concept written in different words.

Amazing. Loved this book! She spoke so much truth and I loved her focus on your inner knowing 💖

Most meaningful book I’ve read. Self empowering Liberating Spiritual Parental Sexual and intimate Hilarious Triumphant Beautiful

Untamed. Thoughtful, playful and raw. Just what we need, when we need it.
