"True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are." Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives - experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization.

this was one of the most difficult books to get through because of the enormity of the content. I have learned so much, and hope to Brave the Wilderness myself, and teach these skills to my children as well.

Until five years ago, Alexandra Heminsley was decidedly not a runner. Nor was she athletic in any sense of the word. She was an ordinary, curvy woman who was convinced that sports of any kind, especially running, were beyond her. But she's made running part of her life, and gets to reap the rewards: not just the obvious things, like a touch of weight loss, health and glowing skin, but self-belief, and immeasurable daily pleasure.

"Marley was dead to begin with...." These chillingly familiar words begin the classic Christmas tale of remorse and redemption in A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Now R. William Bennett rewinds the story and focuses the spotlight on Scrooge’s miserly business partner, Jacob T. Marley, who was allowed to return as a ghost to warn Scrooge away from his ill-fated path. Why was Marley allowed to return? And why hadn’t he been given the same chance as Ebenezer Scrooge? Or had he?

Emotions feel automatic to us; that's why scientists have long assumed that emotions are hardwired in the body or the brain. Today, however, the science of emotion is in the midst of a revolution on par with the discovery of relativity in physics and natural selection in biology. This paradigm shift has far-reaching implications not only for psychology but also medicine, the legal system, airport security, child-rearing, and even meditation.

the whole concept is extremely fascinating, and I got a lot out of this book. had a hard time following along with the more technical aspects of the brain functioning, but other than that this book was brilliant. I think it would be worth a second listen to get more out of it personally, but I'm ready to move on to the next book 😊.

How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don't understand the difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to the very well-being of our democratic institutions.

The first half of this book was a true struggle to get through. While the ideas were good, there were tons of them, and they only came together at the end of each chapter. The second half of the book flowed more freely and was a pleasure to read.

I gave four stars instead of 5 because I feel like the last chapter should have been first. You really have no idea where you're going in the book until you got there, and it would have been nice to have some form of Direction. The last chapter literally outlines the entire book which would have been very great to begin with. I love her insight and enjoyed the book overall.
