Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone  by Brené Brown

Braving The Wilderness (2017) challenges common notions about what it means to belong. It links feelings of unbelonging to feelings of anger and unrest, both in the United States and abroad. Brené Brown uses a potent combination of scientific research and storytelling to reveal what it means to truly belong. This includes remarkable tales of pain and suffering that show just how far people are willing to go to gain a sense of belonging.

Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston and she’s spent over 15 years studying a range of feelings, such as vulnerability, courage, empathy and shame.
