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.”

Don’t miss the five-part HBO Max docuseries Brené Brown: Atlas of the Heart!

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.”

If you have kids, please read this one.

Might be the most helpful book I have ever read- and I’ve read a lot. I keep referring back to her named feelings for the remedies. If I’d learned how to properly deal with my feelings like this before now (I’m 50) I know my relationships would have been better and maybe I wouldn’t be alone. Until now the only tools I had were to stuff the emotions down (like Spock) or run away. Thank God for you, Brene.

Interesting but Lacking

Somewhat surprised by the content and the style of writing. Comes across as a text book or reading material for academia. Not sure it’s applicable to business or corporate leadership. It’s a stretch to make that connection …. Found a few nuggets. Definitely not what I expected for sure.

Having read most all of Berene’s work leading up to this one, it’s incredible to see how (just like us), her learnings and assumptions twist and turn and grow and develop and blossom into something beautiful over all this time. Atlas of the Heart puts into words what we feel and know (or have no idea we know) in such a way that you go back and read one of her passages again and again and think, “WOW- if that isn’t hitting the nail dead on the head”…… Brene Brown, thank you.
