PREVIEW: In Daring Greatly, Brene Brown expands her over twelve years of academic research on the anatomy of connection into a 250+ page how-to on engaging more fully with ourselves and our world. The title comes from a 1910 speech by Theodore Roosevelt, given at the Sorbonne after his presidency, about disavowing the non-participatory critics in favor of the man in the arena. Brown discusses where our fear of vulnerability comes from, why we protect ourselves, the price of disengagement, and owning and engaging with vulnerability to transform ourselves into better (if messier) beings.
