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.

Loved this book!

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.

Praise for Daring Greatly© DANNY CLARKBrené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past decade studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. Her 2010 TEDxHouston talk, on the power of vulnerability, is one of the most watched talks on TED.com. Brené is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Gifts of Imperfection (2010), I Thought It Was Just Me (2007), and Rising Strong (2015). Brené is also the founder and CEO of The Daring Way—a teaching and certification program for helping professionals who want to facilitate her work on vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. Brené lives in Houston with her husband, Steve, and their two children.ALSO BY BRENÉ BROWNThe Gifts of ImperfectionI Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t)Rising StrongWHAT ITMEANS TODAREGREATLYTHE phrase Daring Greatly is from Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “Citizenship in a Republic.” The speech, sometimes referred to as “The Man in the Arena,” was delivered at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, on April 23, 1910.

Editorial Reviews

“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 ac
