Qualitative researcher, motivational speaker and best-selling author Brené Brown understands that most people go to great lengths to avoid feeling like an outcast. Today, she writes, maintaining your place in your community often means hunkering down in an “ideological bunker” and pointing fingers at a common enemy. Brown urges you to enter a metaphorical wilderness, find the courage to stand up for what’s right and emerge with renewed faith in the links among all people. Brown’s trademark mix of compassion and tough love fuel a guidebook for people seeking to belong to themselves while connecting with others.
