Book Review: Daring Greatly By Brené Brown

If you haven’t seen Bené Brown’s Ted talk on vulnerability, I highly recommend it.

I had watched Brene’s Ted Talk last year but recently a friend sent her book Daring Greatly to me. Needless to say I was overjoyed, books are one of my two favorite gifts, my first favorite being equity in a venture.

Although this book is filled with numerous gems of wisdom, I wanted to highlight two points that stuck out in particularly to me.

First, engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.

Second, the importance of parents modeling the action they want their child to take.

From my own experience, I find it incredibly destructive when parents adopt the mindset of “I’m the parent I can do whatever I want, but I expect my child to do what I say, which can be the exact opposite of what I do.” This creates a lack of respect and, in some cases, resentment in the child.

However, Brené also talks a lot about shame and vulnerability, something I’m sure I’ll be writing more about soon.

Overall, I would give this book a 7.3/10.
