The number one New York Times Bestseller and Ted Sensation.
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. Brené 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 twelve 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.

I loved this book. Was a little hesitant in reading it but I think it will change my life.
Brilliant and Insightful
This has to be one of the best self inspirational books ive read in a long time, it cuts to the core of our motivations and emotions. I've read it twice and will read it again just to pick on those little snippets of inspiration that I didn't see before.
Absolute must read, not that im much of a reader, but this will resonate with everyone and anyone that wants to improve their mental capacity to stand out and be themselves without fear or retribution. If everyone would read this then the world will be a better place, guaranteed.
