Daring Greatly How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
The number one New York Times best seller. One million copies sold!
From thought leader Dr. Brené Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; ...who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly." (Theodore Roosevelt)
Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on 12 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.
Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, and the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: "When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives."
Daring Greatly is not about winning or losing. It's about courage. In a world where "never enough" dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It's even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there's a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena - whether it's a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. Daring Greatly is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

- Vulnerability is Power. Live Wholeheartedly. Review by BestBookSales Customer
Live Wholeheartedly and without shame. Don't shame urself or others. There is a much better way and that is to engage from a place of worthiness and enough.

- Short and impactful Review by Eric
I like that she packed in good content into a brief book. I like that it was 6 hours, not 20. Great book, impacted me as a parent and leader at work. I’ll do better at building people around me by encouraging/recognizing creativity and effort. I’ll be less critical of myself and others and try to focus on changing bad behaviors not labeling people/myself as bad.

- Will return to this book! Review by KL
I would recommend this book to anyone! I read about 3/4 from the book then the final 1/4 listening in Audio. So glad I also discovered listening to Brene tell the stories which was a fun twist. So much to think about while reading. I feel so grateful for the support I feel I’ve always had. So much to digest regarding love and vulnerability. I could eat from this endless garden of knowledge everyday! In other words, I found a lot of comfort in this book, and have marked pages to reread as reminders and inspiration. Thank you Brene for Daring Greatly to share your research with the world.

- Dr Brene Brown is talking to all of us Review by e dem
I have now read 3 of Dr. Brown’s books, and this one is my favorite. When she is reading, it feels she is really telling you from her heart. Since reading, I have practicing sharing my weaknesses along with my strengths, and it ha really helped my friendships with others. People have really starting saying, “I thought it was just me!” When we discuss our hits and misses in life.

I could not love her books any more than I do. She is an amazing author and when she reads the books for the audio series it just makes the words hit home!
