Brown, a social scientist and therapist, says that courageously sharing our weaknesses and desires helps develop the authentic relationships we need to become creative, loving, and effective. With moving stories full of colorful language, she shows how shame about our imperfections keeps us isolated and stunts our growth. We blossom emotionally when we speak honestly with people—not blurting secrets to just anyone but speaking from the heart and learning how to develop the steadiness needed to survive not being understood, respected, or loved. Karen White performs this thoughtful, often stream-of-consciousness writing with the measured phrasing of a theater-trained voice pro. Her speaking style is uniformly believable, but the high polish of her performance gives it an erudite edge that sounds at odds with the author’s casual humor and frequent self-disclosure.
