She does a beautiful job of bringing to light in clear & compassionate terms the struggle to remain both authentic & empathetic in a diverse & at-times divisive world of opinions & broken journeys. The section about dehumanization is nothing less than stunning & useful to all extremes (This week alone I've overheard more than 1 threat of violence directed toward the opposite political "wings").

This book is a cornerstone, & I believe an imperative in social & academic circles going forward.

The audiobook, read by the author, is the best format, in my opinion. In light of the honor & homage paid to Maya Angelou, may I recommend Dr. Angelou's autobiography, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," which is both stunning & excruciating at times, & which you can hear her singing (a climax face-to-face moment at Oprah's studio to Dr. Brown's journey as well.)

We all struggle with belonging. Brene explores why and how we can embrace ourselves and brave the wilderness together.

Brene's books just get better and better. She talks about how to brave our own reactions and emotions to get to the root of human connections. I love her research findings, I love her honesty... and I love this book. Great read.

Most important takeaway: We need to get out of or social, political and cultural silos and talk to each other. We can vehemently disagree and still be civil to each other!

I probably missed a lot of this as I listened to it while driving, but I still got something out of it. Perhaps Brown wasn't the best reader, however.
