Read Rising Strong Online Free - The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. The author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection tells us what it takes to get back up, and how owning our stories of disappointment, failure, and heartbreak gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle, Brené Brown writes, can be our greatest call to courage, and rising strong our clearest path to deeper meaning, wisdom, and hope.

Some books you hug. Other books hug you. Rising Strong is a book that hugs you. “Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness in our lives; it’s the process that teaches us the most about who we are.” If you haven’t gotten used to the language of Brené Brown, now’s a great time...

I scored this off of NetGalley. I was unsure how I'd feel about reading a Brene Brown book since I have only watched her TED Talks and listened to The Power of Vulnerability which is a series of workshop courses she gave.
I shouldn't have wondered. Brown's voice grabbed me from the moment I read t...

I thought I would have a lot to say after listening to this audiobook.
**Rebecca Foster** already wrote A PERFECT REVIEW. Everything she wrote fits my experience!
I enjoyed LISTENING to this book while walking. My guess is I would not have enjoyed 'reading' it half as much. (I might have b...

I finally had to give up on this book. I was going to try to make it to the end but I couldn't do it anymore after I got through the second-to-last chapter of this tiresome volume of arrogant drivel. Brene Brown's book purports to be a self-help book about getting over life's adversities but it n...

There are books that meet you at just the right time, when you most need and are open to their messages. I can well imagine encountering the warm Texan embrace of Brené Brown's brand of social psychology at other times of my life and being turned off by its fierceness, volume and confidence. I ma...

I'm perplexed. I enjoyed Daring Greatly and was excited to read Rising Strong. But, I wonder about "Pamela", frosting fingers woman, and the breastfeeding mom.
I think acting with integrity, for me, would have been greater had the author sent "Pamela" and her boss the email. Instead of, in essenc...

When I read a self-help book, I realize not all of it will apply to me or I will take what I need at that moment. This book is no different BUT I took a lot of notes. It was intriguing and interesting. The book is full of stories to help the reader see the point Brene is trying to make.
I used so...

I come at this book from a few perspectives. First, I saw a librarian make a presentation on vulnerability in the classroom, and he quoted Brene's earlier book, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead, as the basis for his experiments wi...

Brown, a qualitative researcher in the field of social work, encourages readers to embrace vulnerability and transform failure and shame through a simple process of re-evaluating the stories we tell ourselves. The gimmicky terminology and frequent self-referencing grated on me a bit, but I apprec...

I'm sure this book would've been impactful no matter when I read/listened to it, but MAN does it feel incredibly appropriate right now.
