Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown
Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown  

This important book is about the lifelong journey from 'What will people think?' to 'I am enough'. Brown's unique ability to blend original research with honest storytelling makes reading it similar to having a long, uplifting conversation with a very wise friend who offers compassion, wisdom and great advice.

Brown courageously tackles the dark emotions that get in the way of leading a fuller life. When reading this book you'll let some of that courage rub off onto yourself. Courage, compassion and connection: Through Brene's research, observations and guidance, these three little words can open the door to amazing changes in your life.

Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what and how we should be. We're led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please and perfect, all the while thinking, 'What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air?'

In "The Gifts of Imperfection" Brown is a leading expert on shame, authenticity and belonging. She shares what she's learned from a decade of research.
