Review “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 Daring Greatly, Brené Brown refers to herself as both a
mapmaker and a traveler. In my book, that makes her a guide. And I believe the
world needs more guides like her who are showing us a wiser way to our inner
world. If you’d like to set your course on being more courageous and
connected, engaged and resilient, leave the GPS at home. Daring Greatly is all
the navigation you’ll need.”—Maria Shriver”Daring Greatly is an important book
— a timely warning about the danger of pursuing certainty and control above
all. Brené Brown offers all of us a valuable guide to the real reward of
vulnerability: Greater courage.”—Daniel Pink”What I find remarkable about this
book is the unique combination of solid research and kitchen table story-
telling. Brené becomes such a real person in the book that you can actually
hear her voice asking, “Have you dared greatly today?” The invitation in this
book is clear: We must be larger than anxiety, fear, and shame if we want to
speak, act, and show up. The world needs this book and Brené’s unique blend of
warmth, humor and ass-kicking makes her the perfect person to inspire us to
dare greatly.” —Harriet Lerner, Ph.D.”One of the tragic ironies of modern life
is that so many people feel isolated from each other by the very feelings they
have in common: including a fear of failure and a sense of not being enough.
Brené Brown shines a bright light into these dark recesses of human emotion
and reveals how these feelings can gnaw at fulfillment in education, at work
and in the home. She shows too how they can be transformed to help us live
more wholehearted lives of courage, engagement and purpose. Brené Brown writes
as she speaks, with wisdom, wit, candor and a deep sense of humanity. If
you’re a student, teacher, parent, employer, employee or just alive and
wanting to live more fully, you should read this book. I double dare you.”—Sir
Ken Robinson”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 act of being
vulnerable. She dared greatly to write this book, and you will benefit greatly
to read it and to put its razor-sharp wisdom into action in your own life and
work.”—Elizabeth Lesser, Cofounder, Omega Institute, author of Broken Open”A
straightforward approach to revamping one’s life from an expert on
vulnerability.”—Kirkus Reviews”Will draw readers in and have them considering
what steps they would dare to take if shame and fear were not present.”
—Publishers Weekly”Offers good insights into how people don personal armor to
shield themselves from vulnerability.”—The Wall Street Journal”Brene’s down-
to-earth approach to vulnerability resonates with me.” —Katie Couric Read more
