Publisher's Summary

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 12 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.

Probably good, couldn't listen anymore

I am a fan of the author and was looking forward to listening to this book on a long car drive. I got to about to chapter 3 when I couldn't take the voice of the reader anymore. She sounded like a computer reading the book. I'll have to read it myself to see how the book really is.

One star for narration

I am easily irritated by sounds and the narrator's voice was not my cup of tea. I couldn't get past the first few minutes. I love Brene's work, but I will have to read this one the old fashioned way.
