“[Brené Brown’s] research and work have given us a new vocabulary, a way to talk with each other about the ideas and feelings and fears we’ve all had but haven’t quite known how to articulate. . . . Brené empowers us each to be a little more courageous.”—The Huffington Post
“With a fresh perspective that marries research and humor, Brown offers compassion while delivering thought-provoking ideas about relationships—with others and with oneself.”—Publishers Weekly
“It is inevitable—we will fall. We will fail. We will not know how to react or what to do. No matter how or when it happens, we will all have a choice—do we get up or not? Thankfully, Brené Brown is there with an outstretched arm to help us up.”—Simon Sinek, author of Start with Why and Leaders Eat Last

This is a logical next step in her work. Her earlier work encourages vulnerability, facing shame, embracing emotion. That stuff is HARD, and it definitely comes with risk. This book is a manual for what to do when you've been brave, taken a risk, and it hasn't worked out as you planned. Best of all, it gives step-by-step instructions for processing the emotions. I used her suggestions while journaling and figured out some stuff that had been bothering me for ages that I hadn't been able to nail down. Highly recommended.
This felt padded, or stuffed with a lot of information that isn't necessary to get the point (if you can find it) across. Chapters were close to thirty pages long and they didn't need to be, imo.
Maybe I couldn't connect with her life examples? Maybe I just didn't care about her life examples because there wasn't enough in them that moved me.
Whether nonfiction or fiction, you as the writer still have to hook your audience, which you do with emotions. This book just didn't do it for me.
I was looking for information/tools that can help me, the reader, get through my soul-sucking life/day. Help me help myself so I can live a better life.
Disappointed. I was expecting something more akin to "Daring Greatly". I have her "Wilderness" book too and I'm hesitant in getting any hopes up.
This gets donated to the local veterans library.
Rising Strong is an inspiration, topics like shame and failure are discussed with humor and vulnerability that we can all relate to.
This book gets the message across so well with honesty and story examples that the reader can identify with. Brown really expresses the stages of failure, shame, and fear that keep us down, and she shows us the steps to get back up! That is remarkable, it's one thing to get knocked down, but with clarity and insight she shares how to rumble with those parts inside us that keep us down and get back up.

"Rising Strong" felt quite dense, even on audio. I love the sources and other research that she cites, and that she also quotes from the mainstream media - the balance of academic and 'pop culture' references still allows her to wear her knowledge relatively lightly.
Plus I admire her courage and self-compassion in sharing stories from her own experience and how she uses her journals. highly recommended, its the sort of thing you want to (mentally) digest in small pieces, like very rich and high-quality chocolate.
Thank you again, Brene - for caring enough to heroically put this (and your other work) out into the world, and for the wonderful support materials available on your website. You absolutely rock, lay-dee. Keep up the sterling work! :O)
We all fail and we all fall from time-to-time and this is about us getting back up and not lashing out, however it might make us feel better.
She also talks about how, so often we have a “story” in our heads that plays out and how this often ends in “tears”, either our own or somebody else’s. We are better than that, and dealing with the anger, the vulnerability the shame and regret is OK. We are all human and we all feel these things. A great book if you want to live a better life, without some preachy, do-gooder telling you, what to do. Brene is real and explains her own situations as examples.
