Imagine the irony — if we had to shame you because you didn’t join our conversation on shaming. No. Not you. Not when all you have to do is enter the third annual CronkNews online summer book club, hosted by Cronk head writer emeritus Irma Pelt.

How does it work?

  1. Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
    Daring Greatly by Brené Brown

    Get the book. This year’s selection is Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brené Brown.

  2. Oh no! It’s too late to read the book?!?! No worries. Watch Brené Brown in action in her wickedly honest TED talks.

As Sir Ken Robinson said in his review of her work, “One of the tragic ironies of modern life is that so many people feel isolated from each other by the very feelings they have in common: including a fear of failure and a sense of not being enough. Brené Brown shines a bright light into these dark recesses of human emotion and reveals how these feelings can gnaw at fulfillment in education, at work and in the home. She shows too how they can be transformed to help us live more wholehearted lives of courage, engagement and purpose. Brené Brown writes as she speaks, with wisdom, wit, candor and a deep sense of humanity. If you’re a student, teacher, parent, employer, employee or just alive and wanting to live more fully, you should read this book. I double dare you.”
