Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience

by Brené Brown Author

In Brené Brown's latest book, the bestselling author sets out to create an 'atlas' for the heart, or to map the various words and phrases we use to describe our emotions, ourselves, and our relationships with others. Brown posits that by finding the right words and using these words in a precise and accurate way, we can begin to feel more at home with ourselves and others and can cultivate a greater degree of empathy and care for both. Building on her research into the experiences that make us who we are, Brown is determined to help us find better language to describe those experiences. A tenderly wrought and elegantly executed book that has a lot to teach us about ourselves and the way we carry ourselves in the world.
