Book Review – Braving The Wilderness


Braving The Wilderness by Brene Brown (Vermilion) ISBN 9781785041754

Best known for her TedTalk on vulnerability, Brene Brown has also written three books about this topic and her work on courage, shame, and empathy.

Braving The Wilderness examines belonging and how you should be comfortable with yourself. If you do, you will not need others to make you feel like you fit in. The difficulty to belong in this time of polaritisation based on political changes and fear of the other is more heightened than before.

Brown gives some advice and guidance to assist us to find our way through the challenges to love and connection with one another. Braving The Wilderness is an interesting read, but I prefer the video versions.
