Product Description

Review


“The brilliantly insightful Brené Brown draws upon extensive research and personal experience to explore the paradoxes of courage: we become strong by embracing vulnerability, we dare more greatly when we acknowledge our fear. I can’t stop thinking about this book.”
—Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project



"A wonderful book: urgent, essential and fun to read. I couldn't put it down, and it continues to resonate with me."
—Seth Godin, author of Linchpin



"In an age of constant pressure to conform and pretend, Daring Greatly offers a compelling alternative: transform your life by being who you really are. Embrace the courage to be vulnerable. Dare to read this book!"
—Chris Guillebeau, author of The $100 Startup



"Here's the essence of this book: Vulnerability is courage in you but inadequacy in me. Brené's book, weaving together research and Texan anecdote, shows you some paths forward. And don't for a moment think this is just for women. Men carry the burden of Being Strong And Never Weak, and we pay a heavy price for it. Daring Greatly can help us all."
—Michael Bungay Stanier, author of Do More Great Work



"I deeply trust Brené Brown--her research, her intelligence, her integrity, and her personhood. So when she definitively lands on the one most important value we can cultivate for professional success, relationship health, parental joy, and courageous, passionate living...well, I sit up and take notice . . . even when that one most critical value turns out to be the risky act of being vulnerable. She dared greatly to write this book, and you will benefit greatly to read it and to put its razor-sharp wisdom into action in your own life and work."
—Elizabeth Lesser, Cofounder, Omega Institute, author of Broken Open



"In Daring Greatly, Brené Brown refers to herself as both a mapmaker and a traveler. In my book, that makes her a guide. And I believe the world needs more guides like her who are showing us a wiser way to our inner world. If you'd like to set your course on being more courageous and connected, engaged and resilient, leave the GPS at home. Daring Greatly is all the navigation you'll need."
—Maria Shriver



"Daring Greatly is an important book -- a timely warning about the danger of pursuing certainty and control above all. Brené Brown offers all of us a valuable guide to the real reward of vulnerability: Greater courage."
—Daniel Pink



"What I find remarkable about this book is the unique combination of solid research and kitchen table story-telling. Brené becomes such a real person in the book that you can actually hear her voice asking, "Have you dared greatly today?" The invitation in this book is clear: We must be larger than anxiety, fear, and shame if we want to speak, act, and show up. The world needs this book and Brené’s unique blend of warmth, humor and ass-kicking makes her the perfect person to inspire us to dare greatly." 
—Harriet Lerner, Ph.D.



"One of the tragic ironies of modern life is that so many people feel isolated from each other by the very feelings they have in common: including a fear of failure and a sense of not being enough. Brené Brown shines a bright light into these dark recesses of human emotion and reveals how these feelings can gnaw at fulfillment in education, at work and in the home. She shows too how they can be transformed to help us live more wholehearted lives of courage, engagement and purpose. Brené Brown writes as she speaks, with wisdom, wit, candor and a deep sense of humanity. If you're a student, teacher, parent, employer, employee or just alive and wanting to live more fully, you should read this book. I double dare you."
—Sir Ken Robinson



"A straightforward approach to revamping one's life from an expert on vulnerability."
Kirkus




"Will draw readers in and have them considering what steps they would dare to take if shame and fear were not present."
--Publishers Weekly


"Offers good insights into how people don personal armor to shield themselves from vulnerability." --The Wall Street Journal

Format: Hardcover
First was introduced to Brene Brown through her TED talk video. Amazing woman- funny, thoughtful and daring greatly in her work. This book is one of those books that you need to read, re-read, talk about, think about, re-read, and hold close.
This booked helped me understand myself better and understand those around me better and how to support one another in our truths and vulnerabilities and our journey to wholehearted living. Best Christmas gift I could think of giving!

Brene Brown's Daring Greatly provides revealing insight into shame in our culture; how it affects our relationships, families and work environments. It is a practical, easy to read guide to understanding shame and how to deal with it to open your life up to authenticity and vulnerability. I highly recommend Daring Greatly and her previous book Wholehearted Living.

This book is easily readable and useful for the individual hoping to understand their own pain and therapist helping their clients understand and cope with emotional pain. Brown uses her own examples of vulnerability to highlight the struggles that many people face. The research findings in this book are easily translatable to clinical practise and dovetail nicely with strategies and theory from other fields of clinical practise such as schema work and short term psychodynamic work. I highly recommend!

Love Brene Browns teaching! Bought the audio CD the 'Power of Vulnerability' and loved it. It's a 'recorded live' session -- excellent! Then I bought this one - 'Daring Greatly' - wow! very different narrative .... very hard to absorb (by comparison) for me - also is mostly the same material covered in the power of vulnerability. Needless to say - disappointed in the audio version of this.

Outstanding. A real book that really helps one cope in a complex world. It is one thing to be introspective and it is another to find solutions to what you find. Dr. Brown's efforts offer an opportunity to move beyond the counter productive mind noise and I personally cannot thank her enough.
If you want to get an overview watch her TEDx Talk. It is worth it.

vulnerabilty is our greatest gift, it is not weakness as myself and so many others think it to be, but when you open yourself to vulnerabilty you open up new doors, people relate to you better, find you more real and trust you more.

The book helps you to do this with grace and not a blubbeling fool which was my fear of being vulnerable.

Candid, sincere, and eye-opening. Brene Brown provides her readers with much needed insight into the cognitive motivations driving our behaviours and the possibilities of improving upon our wholeheartedness, optimism, and recognizing vulnerability as a tool for connection and authenticity.

This book is a definite life-changer. Before I was even done reading it, I ordered another copy for my sister. Full of healing wisdom and ideas to make life more authentic and fulfilling. Plus Brene is a total sweetheart, which you can tell from her stories and the way she tells them.
