“Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead”  
by Dr. Brene Brown
Reviewed by Jane 


Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past twelve years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. 

That sounds kinda dry, right?  But, really, how many of us feel as if we’re not living our authentic life?  That we’re really not being who we want to be?  Judging by the humongous number of self-help books that are published every year, it’s a lot of us.
 


The premise of this book is that we are not ourselves because we are afraid to be vulnerable.  We walk around with our guard up, afraid to show who we really are.  Why?  Fear of being judged, fear of being shamed and/or humiliated if we reveal who we are under our suit of armour.

Sound familiar?  Probably.  That’s why Dr. Brown’s 2010 TEDxHouston talk, The Power of Vulnerability, is one of the top ten most viewed TED talks on TED.com, with approximately 6 million viewers. Additionally, she gave the closing talk at the 2012 TED conference where she talked about shame, courage, and innovation.

The book is extensively researched, but tells real people’s stories to make her point that we have an epidemic of women feeling like imposters; that we can’t be successful or brave or happy because of our inner struggles with these themes.    Dr. Brown is also not afraid to use herself and her experiences as a way to ‘walk the walk’.

The word ‘empowerment’ is grossly over-used.  We seem to think we can make up for it by being aggressive and ballsy and more masculine.  Brene Brown brings a new outlook of strength through introspection and exploration of what makes us, us.

It’s a great book. And it's 20% off at Tattered Cover this month.  Check out her great TedxHouston talk.  We chicks can be ourselves, we can be strong, and we do that by admitting our vulnerability.
