Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly. Whether the arena is a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation, we must find the courage to walk into vulnerability and engage with our whole hearts. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection. The book that Dr. Brown’s many fans have been waiting for, Daring Greatly will spark a new spirit of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities.

I'm on an unfortunate roll of reading books I really don't care for. I don't know if I had a glitchy audiobook or if Brown seriously repeats entire paragraphs, verbatim, throughout the book, but it was a feature I found pandering and annoying. Also, every recalled conversation sound fake. Every sing...

4.0 DARING GREATLY - I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME Audiobook :Daring Greatly & I Thought It Was Just Me Audiobook: Brene Brown [Audiobook, CD, Unabridged] (Audiocd)
The book was funny, thoughtful, and straight to the point. I thought I would never stop laughing when she talks about lying to the teacher about making cookies. The author talks through so many rules and double standards that we put on ourselves. I appreciate the way she describes living in a mor...

Teddy Roosevelt sums up this book nicely:“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who striv...

By and large, I'm pretty averse to self-help books. I can't stand the didactic tone, and I rarely trust any "analysis" contained within. I didn't have either problem with Brown's book. While she did back up her analysis with (what seems to my untrained eye to be) solid sociological research, that wa...
