Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Dr. Brené Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage. 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.

We like it because:

In a world where we have been led to believe that we need to be tough, vulnerability is often assumed to be a weakness. Through a combination of solid research and everyday story telling, Brene Brown provides a call for the power of vulnerability and the possibility of changing the way we connect with others.
