Brown writes that the enemy of constructive vulnerability--that is, the enemy of daring greatly--is shame. She defines shame as that horrible ego torpedo we all know so well, the assumption that our failures are the result of our inferiority. Fantastic read and loved it.

This summary is concise and it offers key takaways on each chapter. If you have read the book and want a refresher on the information, this is an excellent resource and highly recommended.

She presents a compassionate and hopeful view of a very difficult subject. Her call to live a wholehearted life is the goal of everyone who enters the therapeutic process. This is the perfect meeting of the self help and professional worlds. The best aspect is that it normalizes this struggles for people throughout the psychiatric spectrum that fits perfectly with the positive psychology research that has emerged in recent years.

I ordered the summary to decide whether to order the book. I am familiar with Brown's writing. I love her Gifts of Imperfection book. The summary gave me a good idea of the subject of Daring Greatly. It doesn't entirely convey her personal style because she didn't write it. But I was able to tell I wanted to add the book to my wish list.Often I am intrigued with a title or subject but not sure whether to spend money on the book.

I felt like reading this summary version was like reading the book for the most part. It hit all the highlights of Daring Greatly. It gave me tools to identify and move forward and make the changes to live a more wholehearted life. I personally feel like vulnerability is strength and not a weakness however I wasn't clearly aware of the areas in my life that I wasn't being so vulnerable. This book helped me identify areas of shame that kept me from experiencing a fuller life. I love this 30 min summary. Just like that I can choose to make some different choices and really have what we all really want, connection. A guilty and shame free connection and it starts with me by practicing some the tools she listed in this book.

Took me half an hour to read this book ( summary ) of encouraging thoughts. Extracts highlights across all the chapters very well and was a pleasure to read! Coming to the message, are you living with shame? Do you always feel an underlying itch of ‘never enough’? Do you find yourself disconnecting from people you love? If any of these questions ring true then I hope you’ll read this for yourself. Even if they don’t ring true, its truly a game changer.

The message is not about winning or losing, it’s about courage. Vulnerability is subversive, uncomfortable and it’s even a little dangerous at times. But the heart of wholehearted living is this: “There really is no triumph without vulnerability.” Thats the bottom line and thanks for the summary! I really liked the way its written and helped me make a decision to buy the original book and I also gifted one to my sister who is raising two kids.

Brown creates a layered approach to dealing with the vulnerabilities of life, and progressing through them with courage and intrepid manners. Her advice is all about how to manage stresses, and problems in daily routine, and more. It's a good notion, and one that is definitely left of center amongst other self help books.

Brown talks about life experiences, how to raise children, and embrace vulnerability as a cornerstone for a triumphant journey through life. It's definitely a good read.

I am quickly becoming a major fan of InstaRead Summaries. Today I picked up a copy of Daring Greatly by Brene Brown - A 30-minute Summary & Analysis: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead.

The book the book is about:

At one time or another (or all of the time, if we’re being honest) everyone experiences shame. Brene Brown presents a compelling argument for shame being the great impediment of vulnerability. She explains how shame can effect a person’s ability to be authentic, what the side effects of that might look like (workaholic, anyone?), and why it is important to learn to let go so that we can become better parents. Her insight allowed me to assume a new perspective on my own behavior and to reflect on ways that I can learn to let my own guard down.

The book:

This summary begins with a broad overview of what the text will cover and a breakdown of who is who in the book (super helpful if you’re jumping in to an abbreviated version). Each chapter clearly delivers the meat of Brown’s message and wraps up nicely with a “Key Takeaways” section. The language is accessible and there aren’t distracting grammar or spelling issues. As usual, InstaRead Summaries deliver.

I gave this book 5 stars for several reasons. I love how this book has a list of characters so that you know who is who from the beginning of the story. It gives a chapter by chapter summary of what happens in each chapter. It is a great addition to the original book. You can read this one after words to make sure you did not miss anything. If you are doing a book review on the original book for school, this is a great addition! At the end of each chapter it lists key happenings to make sure you got every necessary point out of each chapter. If you have ever read the original book and want to refresh your memory, this is a great book to do that with. I recommend this book!

This book tells the story of the author that is a social worker and researches topics such as shame, being vulnerable, and living a wholehearted-happy life. The first chapter talks about how people are never happy with themselves thanks to social media. People never feel like they are good enough of have enough money or things. Chapter two talks about how social media makes people feel shame from not thinking they are good enough. Finally, this book teaches you how to turn shame into strength and how it is necessary to teach children how to do this at a young age.
