    In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, a leading expert on
    shame, authenticity, and belonging, shares ten guideposts on the
    power of Wholehearted living—a way of engaging with the world
    from a place of worthiness.

    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society
    and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are
    led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead
    perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us
    perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, "What if I
    can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else
    working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people
    think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?"

    In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and
    spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage,
    compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think,
    "No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am
    enough," and to go to bed at night thinking, "Yes, I am sometimes
    afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and
    vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of
    love and belonging."

    "This important book is about the lifelong journey from 'What
    will people think?' to 'I am enough.' Brown's unique ability to
    blend original research with honest storytelling makes reading
    The Gifts of Imperfection like having a long, uplifting
    conversation with a very wise friend who offers compassion,
    wisdom, and great advice."

    of Anger and The Dance of Connection

    "Brené Brown courageously tackles the dark emotions that get in
    the way of leading a fuller life; read this book and let some of
    that courage rub off on you."
    —Daniel H. Pink, New York Times best-selling author of A Whole
    New Mind

    "Courage, compassion, and connection: Through Brené's research,
    observations, and guidance, these three little words can open the
    door to amazing change in your life.'"
