Product description

Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brene Brown offers a powerful new vision in Daring Greatly, the numbered 1 New York Times Bestseller, Oprah pick, and TED talk hit that encourages us to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly and courageously. Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative, or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable. Most of us try to fight those feelings - we strive to appear perfect. But in a powerful new vision Dr. Brene Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability, and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that vulnerability is in fact a strength, and when we shut ourselves off from revealing our true selves we grow distanced from the things that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Daring Greatly is the culmination of 12 years of groundbreaking social research, across the home, relationships, work, and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous; to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly. "Brilliantly insightful. I can't stop thinking about this book". (Gretchen Rubin). "A wonderful book. I couldn't put it down". (Seth Godin). "This is big, big, big, big, BIG!" (Oprah Winfrey). Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW is a New York Times bestselling author and a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. Her groundbreaking work was the subject of a PBS special, and has been featured on NPR and CNN. Her 2010 TEDx talk on the topic of vulnerability went viral and has been translated into 38 languages. Brene is also the author of The Gifts of Imperfection and I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't).
