Brené Brown Daring Greatly

This one was a game-changer for me. Brené Brown is a research professor who has spent the past two decades studying topics such as courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. Brené also gave one of the most watched TEDTalks ever, which goes by the name of The Power of Vulnerability. Daring Greatly addresses these topics to the core, with a simple and perceptible tone, opening with a wonderful quote from a 1910 Theodore Roosevelt’s speech (which gave birth to the book’s title):
«It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.»
