"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.

For a book that she presents as based on grounded research, the content is anything but. It's great that she wants to present her points of view, but then she should have been more honest and open about what the book was about. In a book about true belonging, it would have been great to have gone beyond the surface of her opinions.
