Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In her latest book, Brené Brown writes, “If we want to find the way back to ourselves and one another, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories and be stewards of the stories that we hear. This is the framework for meaningful connection.”

In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through eighty-seven of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances—a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heartbreaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection.
Over the past two decades, Brown’s extensive research into the experiences that make us who we are has shaped the cultural conversation and helped define what it means to be courageous with our lives. Atlas of the Heart draws on this research, as well as on Brown’s singular skills as a storyteller, to show us how accurately naming an experience doesn’t give the experience more power, it gives us the power of understanding, meaning, and choice.
Brown shares, “I want this book to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves.”

Brilliantly Wise Work

In Brown’s wonderfully clear style, she explores yet another facet of the human condition and lays it bare with a flow that never ceases to progress perfectly.

Beautiful and impactful

A friend told me about this book and I’m so glad I bought it. If you want to dive deep in to your emotions and try to understand what they mean. Here’s a good start. For all the comments here that are related to political opinions, I wouldn’t describe this book having much to do with politics. Those comments made me hesitant to buy this book. I would have to disagree that this book is about politics. And if you truly view this book with political intend; I strongly urge you to re-read it because you missed the point of the book.
