Book Review: The Gifts of Imperfection
Brene Brown is not afraid to talk about vulnerability. And she has found a very receptive audience. In her Ted talk (5.6 million views and climbing) she gives us all permission to be a little less bulletproof. And a lot more honest.
So with that in mind, I will say that I found the Ted talk more inspiring than the book. The book was a little too self-help for me (admittedly I have a low threshold) but I don’t regret reading it.
The book is chook full of very entertaining annecdotes and is well written. If the Ted talk resonates with you, I wouldn’t feel shy about downloading a copy for a read. Especially if you fall in the “people-pleasing” camp or need a little poke in the direction of standing up for yourself. Which I think many of us do from time to time. I certainly know I do.
