Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to
embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds
could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust
and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who
at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt
Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to
dare greatly. Whether the arena is a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family
conversation, we must find the courage to walk into vulnerability and engage with our whole hearts.
In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of
research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and
meaningful connection. The book that Dr. Brown’s many fans have been waiting for, Daring Greatly will spark a new spirit
of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities.
