Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on 12 years of pioneering research, Dr. Brené Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage. Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, and the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity.

I wonder if everyone who gave it 5 stars has listened to “the power of vulnerability” I enjoyed it so much more. I couldn’t get into this book. I heard the same stories/anecdotes again from other books and it wasn’t deep enough for me. I listened to half of it but keep getting distracted by anything so I just stopped there. I greatly admire dr brene brown, she is definitely an eye opener and her work is life changing.
