    She phoned this one in There s good stuff in here because she s awesome, but there s not enough to warrant a new book I do wish she would try again to think through tribe and inclusion Her insights are good and useful, but there is no coherent theory or story here.

    I gave this book five stars because as usual Brown has done her research, and she is a masterful storyteller These are the two passions of my life research and storytelling.I m a Licensed Professional Counselor and an author, so I devour Brown s books My favorite is The Power of Vulnerability I have watched her TED talks probably a hundred times I tell every one of my clients to read her books and watch her videos I m a huge fan.H

    Huge disappointment My partner who read the book with me pointed out that Brown mentions that she has a problem with not giving uninformed opinions on political topics but then she goes and does exactly that with much of this book This is white liberal centrist lady kumbaya bullshit She doesn t seem to understand how systemic violence works or oppression There s an extreme amount of false equivalency in the book Calling trump a pig is no

    Library overdrive Audiobook read by Breen Brown Note I enjoyed this so much that I m considering buying the Audiobook.There may be thousands of people around the world who are huge fans..and even though I had read one of her books wasn t all that impressed , and later listened to one of her Audiobook s I was much impressed , I still didn t consider myself a fan of her work and quite frankly I really didn t really get what her deal was in the w

    Sorry Brene Brown, you lost me on this one I love you but all I could think throughout this was easy for you to say, white middle class Christian lady.

    I picked up this book because it was listed as a must read book by someone I respect and whose tastes are similar to mine I went to it completely blind and when the author mentioned Harry Potter and J.K Rowling in the opening chapter I knew I was going to like it The mark of a wild heart is living out the paradox of love in our lives It s the ability to be tough and tender, excited and scared, brave and afraid all in the same moment It s showing up in our v

    Brene Brown s new book Braving The Wilderness is her most vital and necessary book yet The book s subject is how to build and maintain connections and a sense of belonging while also staying true to ourselves and our beliefs Through her research studies, personal experiences, and case studies combined with her remarkable perceptiveness and wisdom she provides essential directions through the wilderness of loneliness and disconnection In today s climate of divisiven

    This book came to me at just the right time I found it meaningful, heartfelt, and the themes of belonging and being brave really resonated with me I know Bren Brown has quite the cult following, but this was the first book of hers I have seriously read A few years ago I had The Gifts of Imperfection foisted on me at work, and I was underwhelmed by the book and ended up hate skimming it A few friends had loved Daring Greatly, and now that I have read and appreciated Bravin

    I m a fan of Brown s work and TED talk , but this was just okay I don t think she had enough pulled together thought through for a full release, so it feels not as complete As if rushed for a deadline.I like the ideas of being brave with one s conviction, and willing to put yourself out there, even if you re alone to stand up for what you believe, but this still felt very white and from a protected, majority space.Two pieces that frustrated me.A At one point, Brown tells the sto

    It ended TOO SOON cries silently Brown s words are life affirming, challenging Her books tend to re verberate in my soul, in my mind so I m actively savoring them as I go about my day I belong to myself and I belong to no one Speak truth to bullshit Be civil Pithy, perhaps cliched, maybe But there s simplicity in the brevity here, as one knows Brown has done an avalanche worth of data analysis to back up her simplified phrases.
