The Gifts of Imperfection Brené Brown Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This tenth-anniversary edition of the game-changing #1 New York Times bestseller features a new foreword and new tools to make the work your own.
For over 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 thirty-five different languages across the globe.
What transforms this book from words on a page to effective daily practices are the ten 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.”

User reviews about this book
Thought provoking & inspirational!
By Von’s World
I read this book with my book club, starting with taking the Wholehearted Inventory & meeting weekly to discuss 2 guideposts at a time. It’s remarkable how really evaluating each guidepost’s place in your life can help you to make meaningful change, sometimes without even realizing it. Since completing the book I’ve purchased for four other people. Definitely a game changer, definitely worthwhile.
Peace of mind
This book helped me realize I’m not alone in my ways of thinking, and I have feeling this won’t be my last time reading it either. I highly recommend!!
I enjoyed allowing myself to open up and read from this book . There are topics that I took my time to read and digest the concepts which allowed me to reflect on myself ! Awesome book
A True Gift!
This book was a true gift to my imperfect self. I had so many “a-has” & takeaways. The timing in reading this book at this season of my life was perfect!
By Joey eckersen
Great definitions of words we usually take for granted. Great stories to back up each of the concepts.
Brenè has such a talent for words. Gifts of Imperfection is simple to read, yet simultaneously complex and thought igniting.
Time to Embrace YOU
By I am Jess.
Another Brene Brown gem. After doing all of the research, she shares with us her discoveries to help guide you in finding the authentic version of yourself that you were always meant to be. Forget society and the norms, many of us having forgotten how go genuinely live.
