The Gifts of Imperfection 10th Edition PDF -The 10th-anniversary edition of the game-changing number one New York Times best seller, featuring a new foreword.

For more than a decade, Brené Brown has found a special place in our hearts as a gifted mapmaker and a fellow traveler. She is both a social scientist and a kitchen-table friend whom you can always count on to tell the truth, make you laugh, and, on occasion, cry with you. And what’s now become a movement all started with The Gifts of Imperfection, which has sold more than two million copies in 35 different languages across the globe.

What transforms this book from words to effective daily practices are the 10 guideposts to wholehearted living. The guideposts not only help us understand the practices that will allow us to change our lives and families, they also walk us through the unattainable and sabotaging expectations that get in the way.

Brené writes, “This book is an invitation to join a wholehearted revolution. A small, quiet, grassroots movement that starts with each of us saying, ‘My story matters because I matter.’ Revolution might sound a little dramatic, but in this world, choosing authenticity and worthiness is an absolute act of resistance.”

The Authors

The Gifts of Imperfection 10th Edition PDF

Casandra Brené Brown (born 1965) is an American research professor, lecturer, author, and podcast host. Brown is known in particular for her research on shame, vulnerability, and leadership. A long-time researcher and academic, Brown became famous following a widely viewed TED talk in 2010. Since then she has written six number-one New York Times bestselling books, hosts two podcasts and has filmed a lecture for Netflix.

Brown holds the Huffington Foundation’s Brené Brown Endowed Chair at the University of Houston’s Graduate College of Social Work and is a visiting professor in management at McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.
Early life and education
Brown was born on November 18, 1965,[2] in San Antonio, Texas, where her parents Charles Arthur Brown and Casandra Deanne Rogers[2] baptized her in the Episcopal Church. She is the eldest of four children.[3] Her family then moved to New Orleans.[4]

Brown completed a Bachelor of Social Work degree at the University of Texas at Austin in 1995, followed by a Master of Social Work degree in 1996,[5] and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in social work at the University of Houston in 2002.[6]

Research and teaching
Brown has spent decades studying the topics of courage, vulnerability, shame, empathy, and leadership. These various topics are all different lenses that Brown has used to look at human connection and how it works.[7]

Brown has spent her research career as a professor at her alma mater, the University of Houston’s Graduate College of Social Work.[8]

Public speaking
Brown is best known for her TEDx talk from Houston in 2010, “The Power of Vulnerability,” which is one of the five most viewed TED talks. Its popularity shifted Brown’s work from relative obscurity in academia into the mainstream spotlight.[9][10][11][12] The talk “summarizes a decade of Brown’s research on shame, framing her weightiest discoveries in self-deprecating and personal terms.”[12] Reggie Ugwu for The New York Times said that this event gave the world “a new star of social psychology.”[12]

She went on to follow this popular TED talk with another titled “Listening to Shame” in 2012. In the second talk she talks about how her life has changed since the first talk and explains the connection between shame and vulnerability, building on the thesis of her first TED talk.[13]

Brown also has a less well-known talk from 2010 given at TEDxKC titled “The Price of Invulnerability.” In it she explains that when numbing hard and difficult feelings, essentially feeling vulnerable, we also numb positive emotions, like joy.[14]

This lead to the creation of her filmed lecture, Brené Brown: The Call to Courage, which debuted on Netflix in 2019.[15] USA Today called it “a mix of a motivational speech and stand-up comedy special.”[15] Brown discusses how and why to choose courage over comfort, equating being brave to being vulnerable. According to her research, doing this opens us up to love, joy, and belonging by allowing us to better know ourselves and be more deeply connect with other people.[16]

Brown also regularly works as a public speaker at private events and businesses, such as at Alain de Botton’s School of Life[11] and at Google and Disney.[12]

She is, as of 2021, the author of six number-one New York Times bestsellers, namely The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, Dare to Lead, and Atlas of the Heart.

In March 2013, she talked with Oprah Winfrey on Super Soul Sunday about her book, Daring Greatly.[17] Brown says she drew the title of that book from a 1910 Theodore Roosevelt speech “Citizenship in a Republic”, given at the Sorbonne.[18]

Brown’s most recent book is titled Atlas of the Heart, published in November 2021, where the goal is to help readers expand the language they have available to communicate their feelings, an emotional vocabulary.[7]

In 2020, Brown began hosting the Unlocking Us and Dare to Lead podcasts.[19]

Unlocking Us alternates between interviews with high-profile guests and solo episodes where Brown talks alone, directly to listeners. In these solo episodes Brown tells personal stories from her life, explains learnings from her research, and supplements it with summaries of other related social science work. Interview guests include grief expert David Kessler, singer Alicia Keys, writer Glennon Doyle, and activist Tarana Burke who started the Me Too movement.[20]

Other work
Brown is CEO of “The Daring Way”, a professional training and certification program on the topics of vulnerability, courage, shame, and empathy.[21]

Brown has a chapter giving advice in Tim Ferriss’ book Tools of Titans.

Brown appeared as herself in the movie Wine Country.[12][22]

Personal life
Brown met Steve Alley in 1987 and they dated for seven years prior to their marriage in 1994. The couple has two children.[3] The family lives in Houston, Texas.[23]

Though baptized in the Episcopal Church, her family raised her as a Catholic.[24] She later left the Catholic Church and returned to the Episcopal community with her husband and children two decades later.

During her time in higher education, Brown has described addiction to a combination of alcohol, smoking, emotional eating and an addiction to control. Brown stopped drinking and smoking and went to her first Alcoholics Anonymous meeting on May 12, 1996, one day after her master’s program graduation. She has been sober since then and often talks about the positive impact of that on her life.[25]

Top reviews

ComfortSeeker “I had a really hard time getting into this one. I struggle a lot with feeling inadequate and not being “good enough” for others. I’m not married, don’t have children, and it seemed that all she was talking about was mothers who struggle with not being able to do it all. Wasn’t a good fit for me at all.”
Clawdette “What a trite, badly written, unhelpful book! I can’t believe the author has a college degree and is a popular speaker. It’s as though a Valley Girl has gotten her hands on 500 self-help books and cobbled them together into one. I could barely read it. If you know that most people in this culture suffer from poor self-esteem and that “self-hatred” seems to be an epidemic, looking at the culture itself might be a better way to go. The Dalai Lama was shocked when Western teachers asked so many questions about poor self esteem and inadequacy, unhappiness and insecurity. It’s a particularly Western problem. This author has a major problem with overweening ego which is NOT the same thing as real self-confidence. So much defensiveness, so much self-promotion, so little real insight. This book is a big waste of money and time.”
Melodi “From the fact that she seems to believe that the experience of a middle class white mom is universal to the part where she states something that is just not considered true in the field of psychology, Dr. Brene Brown proves she is absolutely clueless about humanity. This book will do nothing but waste your time reading long-winded, irrelevant anecdotes about Brown’s life that read like passages from a failed memoir and then try to convince you that who you are is not your behaviors and choices, despite the fact that the field of psychology supports the idea that who you are informs your behaviors and choices and therefore who you are is defined by them. This rhetoric she teaches leads to extremely dangerous thought processes and consequences like people not holding themselves or others accountable for their actions because “their actions aren’t who they are” and why should they apologize or correct a behavior that doesn’t define them. Do not buy this book. Buy an actual workbook designed for mental health purposes.”

Wag “...whatever that means. If she practiced what the subtitle says, “Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are,” rather than droning on about her momentous speaking appearances and her “struggles” with how to define Shame, she would be a far more interesting writer. Her lack of connection to the real world is also exemplified by her style of writing–as some other reviewer said, there may not be another book written that contains more “I’s” than this one little book.

If you, a friend or a family member are suffering from anxiety of some sort, any self-help book by Claire Weekes is infinitely more helpful than this book.”

KStar “I read “Daring Greatly” about 6 months ago after watching Dr. Brown’s TED talks and that book honest to goodness changed my life. I was excited to read this one, particularly because I found her discussion of perfectionism so helpful in Daring Greatly. I have to admit that as much as I still admire Brene Brown, I found this to be a watered down version of Daring Greatly and I kind of regret buying it (I don’t regret READING it, but I do regret paying for it, and I don’t feel that this improves my library).

I found this was a little shallow and abstract, whereas Daring Greatly so eloquently and articulately put words to ideas we understand intuitively, and it really enhanced my emotional vocabulary. This book offered little in that respect. Some of it (shame vs guilt, for example) was redundant of Daring Greatly (and other texts for that matter) and her discussion of ideas like intuition, spirituality, and numbing were vague and unhelpful to me. She was mostly quoting other people’s definitions and discussion of these topics, and while some the quotes were thought-provoking, I didn’t feel that it really enlightened me.

Her examples were also not as compelling in this text. It was mostly about her, and while some of the examples were useful and memorable, I came away feeling like she was painting a picture of her family rather than focusing on her research and data. Daring Greatly, on the other hand, was written in such an empathetic and compassionate way that I kept saying, “YES! That’s me! She understands!” or “Wow! That’s totally my brother-in-law!” It was like one light bulb after another going off. Reading Daring Greatly was so inspiring and healing. This book didn’t have that same level of empathy and was missing that universal quality, focusing instead on examples that were auto-biographical. Some other reviewers said this read like a blog, and I have to agree. By the end of this book I didn’t feel UNDERSTOOD like I did after reading Daring Greatly. I honestly felt that as I read Daring Greatly, Brene Brown was like looking inside me and having a conversation with me, even though she doesn’t even know me. After reading The Gifts of Imperfection, however, I felt that I understood more about her and less about myself.

There was also something a little kitschy about this. She had a section after each chapter called DIG deep where she listed ways that she tries to employ these strategies, and she often said “Amen” at the end of some quotes. While cute, it lacked the maturity and empathy of Daring Greatly.

She was also a little judgmental in this book (towards others and towards herself) and I could ironically see her striving for perfectionism (like in order to be perfect she needs to become “wholehearted,” so she is actively working to employ these strategies rather than actually embodying them). It is almost like by the time she got to Daring Greatly she was fully reborn and had reached that full enlightenment, and she was still working on getting there in this text.

Additionally, unlike Daring Greatly, this reads a little bit like a checklist (see comment above) of things you should do: 1. don’t be a perfectionist 2. Get creative 3. Rest and play 4. But don’t numb 5. Dance like no one is watching you 6. practice self-compassion 7. Have faith. By the end I felt like I was being told what to do to be happy, as if it was a formula. While some of the advice was certainly helpful, it wasn’t inspiring in the same way Daring Greatly was. Daring Greatly got at the heart of one’s emotions. It talked about courage, authenticity, compassion (true ideals) and it showed how there is extraordinary in the ordinary. The Gifts of Imperfection seemed to get sidetracked by specifics (dancing, jewelry making, her childhood house in New Orleans) and it never reached that universality that was so healing in Daring Greatly.

Lastly, this book was highly referential. As I said earlier, she quotes a lot of other people to get at defining abstract terms. She also references the work of many other psychologists, researchers, etc. For example, Kristin Neff and Marci Alboher. It isn’t that I didn’t appreciated her references, but this felt blog-like again: “Hey I read this and I LOVED this idea, check it out!” Or “this quote inspires me! Let me share.” In contrast, it felt like Brene Brown had found her own voice in Daring Greatly, and no longer needed to continually reference others’ work and could just share her research and the conclusions she reached from it.

All in all, while The Gifts of Imperfection was a nice book that offered a little refresher of Brown’s understanding of “wholehearted living” with some ideas about intuition and faith, creativity, and song and dance, it was not as sophisticated or inspiring as her latest book Daring Greatly, which really felt like a true culmination of her research and experiences. I’d skip this one; or at least just borrow it from the library…”
