I consider this book the third in a Brené Brown trilogy that started with “The Gifts of Imperfection”, continued with “Daring Greatly” and now “Rising Strong”.
I just loved this book.
I love that Brené Brown uses examples from her own life freely. As she writes in the introduction:
These narratives grant me not only a front-row seat to watch what’s playing out onstage, but also a backstage pass to access the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are taking place behind the scenes. In my stories, I have the details.
These examples are extremely valuable and make it more than an intellectual exercise, it makes it living and breathing work – and when you read the book you get that it was work. And that the work was completely worth it.
The way that this book was written made it easy for me to read and understand the concepts and points. I know that sometimes I pick up a book that others are raving about the teaching/lessons in it.
I know that sometimes I pick up a book that others are raving about the teaching/lessons in it and they’re written in a way that expresses the point, but they don’t connect with me – they’re more intellectual.
I like and need well-told stories and examples. And Brené Brown’s books not only share the lessons, but shares them with masterfully told stories and examples.
I highly recommend this book.
