Daring Greatly

How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

Brené BrownGotham Books • 2012

Accept Yourself

by David Meyer

Brené Brown’s intelligent sincerity and easy prose welcome readers to her informed, supportive counsel.

Brené Brown’s singular combination of astute compassion and insightful guidance, as seen in Daring Greatly, produced a New York Times number one bestseller of more than two million copies. The Wall Street Journal said that Brown, “…offers insights into how people don personal armor to shield themselves from vulnerability.” Publishers Weekly condensed Brown’s message nicely, saying, “Will…have [readers] considering what steps they would dare to take if shame and fear were not present.”

Brown is a TED Talk star and prolific author. She holds the Huffington Foundation–Brené Brown Endowed Chair at the Graduate College of Social Work at the University of Houston and is a visiting professor at the University of Texas at Austin’s McCombs School of Business.
