Each one of Brené's books, as she mentioned in this one, focuses on a different concept of the human mind. There is one about daring, one about imperfection (which I should take a look at, since I am a perfectionist) and this one rolls into strength, especially emotional and mental strength.

Not my favorite of her books. I love her, but found this to be a bit dramatic and self indulgent. Some good points but her other books are better.Published 2 months ago by Charleen Austin
I wish I knew it was a hard cover with a book jacket. I wouldn't have ordered it, because I don't want to be bothered by a book jacket and want the title etc on the actual book... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
