Blinde leestip (gewoon bestellen): Daring Greatly

Een aangenaam boek over schaamte en kwetsbaarheid, zowel voor mannen als vrouwen. Je kent Brené Brown misschien van haar populaire TED talk.

Het boek opent trouwens met de Man in the Arena-speech van president Theodore Roosevelt, en daarmee is de toon direct gezet.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
