Your True Self

Brené Brown, the guru of vulnerability and self-acceptance, explains how to honor and maintain the inextricable links among all people – including you.

New York Times best-selling author and University of Houston professor and researcher Brené Brown studies courage, shame, vulnerability and empathy. One of her TED Talks, The Power of Vulnerability, has garnered more than 30 million views. 

Our call to courage is to protect our wild heart against constant evaluation, especially our own.Brené Brown

Brown’s guidebook reaches out to people who want to belong to themselves while connecting with others. Feeling like an outcast, she says, is such an unpleasant experience that most people go to great lengths to avoid it, especially for a second time. Yet, she urges you to find the courage to stand up for what’s right, even at that cost, and to emerge with renewed faith in the inextricable links connecting all people. Brown provides the language to talk about such experiences, and her trademark mix of compassion and tough love makes her a relatable storyteller.
