Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Daring Greatly, written and read by Brené Brown.

Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable. Most of us try to fight those feelings - we strive to appear perfect.

In a powerful new vision, Dr. Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that, in truth, vulnerability is strength, and when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability - from revealing our true selves - we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.

Daring Greatly is the culmination of 12 years of groundbreaking social research across every area of our lives including home, relationships, work and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous, to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

This hits home!

I absolutely loved Brené Brown reading her book Daring Greatly! Why? Because it spoke directly into my heart and mind giving me the tools to live a braver life. I am no pussy cat by any stretch of the imagination but this book together with Rising Strong has transformed my way of thinking and being (I was going to say acting, but it’s not an act anymore) for the better. As I implement the principles from these books on a day to day basis my life feels richer and I feel like I’m becoming a truer version on myself. Thank God for Brené Brown!

This one's a keeper

I'll be listening to this again and again.
So many important important ideas explored here.
I love that Brene has narrated this herself: no-one else could do it justice.
Will be recommending to my best friends.

Love Brene Brown!

I love everything about this book and everything Brene Brown writes!
The parenting section particularly resonated with me. Forget about parenting ‘experts’, BE the adult you would like your children to become.
I will listen to all her other books if narrated by Brene herself. On to find the next one...

This book will make you want to Dare Greatly

This took me a little while to settle into - whether it’s that I find lists hard to absorb audibly or whether it’s just that I couldn’t soak up so much information straight away, I stumbled at the beginning. Once hooked though, I really couldn’t let this go and there is a wealth of great advice and understanding packed into this book.
This will make me change my approach in life. I can’t give it a much better accolade than that!

Amazing

Loved every minute of this. I am a real Brene Brown fan and this is even better when she narrates her own work.
Would recommend to all
