Brown explores how the courage to be vulnerable transforms the way we live, love, parent and lead. She does this by challenging everything we think we know about vulnerability and dispels the widely accepted myth that it is equal to weakness. Instead, she argues that vulnerability is strength and a prerequisite for true connection with others. She emphasizes that we have to engage fully and openly with the world around us and realize that this is the only way to live life to the fullest and develop real, honest and loving relationships. We must learn to be kind to ourselves and others and believe that what makes us vulnerable also makes us beautiful. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.
