2012 saw dozens of brilliant new releases, but none changed the way I think and look at life like Daring Greatly. Brene Brown is conversational; she's one of us -- she's just better able to explain why it's OK to feel the way we feel. I love her for it and I love myself more for it, too. Highly recommended for absolutely everyone.

I have deep respect for Brené Brown and, as a social worker myself, I also have great admiration for her and her significant work on shame and vulnerability. In an effort to really grasp what Brené is teaching, I read this book slowly, often re-reading chapters and always listening to her accompanying podcasts online.

In this excellent book, Brené takes the reader through her research findings on living a wholehearted life by doing something radical: being open to vulnerability. I appreciate the clear examples she gives as she describes what her research has shown. I know this research - as well as Brené's vulnerability to be her true self and sharing her struggles with wholehearted living - inspire others to transform their lives.

A great read. Informative and a bit entertaining. Brene has done an excellent job of discovering and sharing how our authenticity and vulnerability are two of our greatest strengths.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Brown (The Gifts of Imperfection) examines vulnerability and imperfection in her latest, which takes its title from Theodore Roosevelt's speech 'Citizenship in a Republic.' Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, is the first to admit that vulnerability makes her uncomfortable, but posits that daring to fail is the only true way to be wholeheartedly engaged in any aspect of life. 'Experiencing vulnerability isn't a choice — the only choice we have is how we're going to respond when we are confronted with uncertainty, risk and emotional disclosure,' she says. Laying out a roadmap for change, the author includes chapters on eliminating blame and shame from work and education, and daring to be the adults we want our children to be. At the same time, she explores what drives people to feel vulnerable and how to address common coping mechanisms in what she calls the 'Vulnerability Armory.' But the core of her message is understanding the difference between guilt and shame, and developing 'shame resistance.' Brown's theories — complete with personal and not always flattering examples from her own life — will draw readers in and have them considering what steps they would dare to take if shame and fear were not present.
