Book Review: Daring Greatly: How The Courage To Be Vulnerable Transforms The Way We Live, Love, Parent And Lead by Brene Brown

Brene Brown is an author that dives into those awkward situations and helps individuals realize we’re not alone. Brene gave an incredible TED talk that went viral and that’s how I came across her book. Her work is transforming.

What I liked about this book is the way she explains shame and how wide spread it’s become in our culture. In the way we talk, walk, think and look at others. She pointed out how many of us are oblivious to it and fail to recognize what we unknowingly do. This book talks about marriage, parenting, work, social expectations, body images, just about everything! It’s raw in a sense of “did she just say that” and also unfiltered. My favorite way to read.

I found myself hoping she’d dive deeper into providing strategies on how to keep others accountable without shaming them.

Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness. -Brene Brown

Side note: I would recommend listening to this audio book without children around.
