**Now on Netflix as The Call to Courage**
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.
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, in truth, vulnerability is strength and when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability - fromrevealing our true selves - we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.
Daring Greatly is the culmination of 12 years of groundbreaking social research, across every area of our lives including 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.
'She's so good, Brené Brown, at finding the language to articulate collective feeling' Dolly Alderton
'A wonderful book: urgent, essential and fun to read. I couldn't put it down, and it continues to resonate with me' (Seth Godin, author of Linchpin)
It's thought-provoking stuff (Stella Magazine, The Sunday Telegraph)

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Brené Brown is famous for her viral TED Talk on the power of vulnerability—and this audiobook deepens her message. With her charming Texas twang and sly, self-deprecating wit, Brown tackles complex ideas with the ease and intimacy of a close friend. Walking us through her research in compelling detail, she doesn’t shy away from revealing her personal quest for vulnerability. Though it slightly predates our current era of #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter and a culture of increasing inequality, Daring Greatly’s message is right on time: leaning into fear is the key to wholehearted living.
Worth listening to
Thought provoking, helpful, easy to understand
Brene's book had a profound impact on me. She writes so well and her work on Shame, Guilt, and Vulnerability has changed how I see myself and the world. And it's helping me to see my inherited perfectionism for the shield it is. When the student is ready the teacher appears. Thank you!
The quarter of audio is HORRIBLE and unable to listen to
