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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must read !! Brene Brown shares raw insights into her personal life and research to help readers understand the importance of embracing 'vulnerability' and 'wholehearted' living. For anyone trying to break free of a stale existence, trapped by the fear of the unknown, this book will provide a way to transform the way you live life. More scientifically rigorous and less 'activity based' than your regular self-help book, this is great for people ready to contemplate a different way of living that will ultimately bring joy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must read !! Dear Madison: Together we will cry and face fear and grief. I will want to take away your pain, but instead I will sit with you and teach you how to feel it. The research outlined in Dr. Brown's book offered the greatest insight I have seen regarding vulnerability, guilt, and shame. I plan to put what I've learned into practice, especially in my parenting.
