About this item


In her latest book, five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Brené Brown, writes, “If we want to find the way back to ourselves and each other, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories, and to be stewards of the stories that we hear. This is the framework for meaningful connection.”

In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through 87 of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and lays out an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances—a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heartbreaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection.

Over the past two decades, Brown’s extensive research into the experiences that make us who we are has shaped the cultural conversation and helped define what it means to be courageous with our lives. Atlas of the Heart draws on this research, as well as Brown’s singular skills as a researcher/storyteller, to lay out an invaluable, research-based framework that shows us that naming an experience doesn’t give the experience more power, it gives us the power of understanding, meaning, and choice.

Brown shares, “I want this to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves. Even when we have no idea where we are.”


Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston, where she holds the Huffington Foundation–Brené Brown Endowed Chair at the Graduate College of Social Work. She is also a visiting professor in management at the University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business. Brown has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead, which is the culmination of a seven-year study on courage and leadership. With Tarana Burke, she co-edited the bestselling anthology You Are Your Best Thing: Vulnerability, Shame Resilience, and the Black Experience. She hosts the Unlocking Us and Dare to Lead podcasts, and her TEDx talk, “The Power of Vulnerability,” is one of the top five most-viewed TED talks in the world with more than 50 million views. Her Netflix special, The Call to Courage, is the first filmed lecture by a researcher on the streaming service. Brené Brown lives in Houston, Texas, with her husband, Steve. They have two children, Ellen and Charlie.

Brene did it again. Very detailed and informative. Reading it again for the second time but with my boys so they can also have a deeper insight on the use of words and emotions. Great dialogue and conversation starter for my boys. The questions keep coming. Great job again Mrs Brown

Loved content and very helpful and informative, but took me a few chapters to get used to it being an "encyclopedia-esque" style with lots of stories to explain or back up the emotion definitions & applications to one's emotional health & Struggles. I have read am re-reading highlights already, and only had book for a little over a week. Two thumbs up!

A very engaging and learning experience reading this book. It’s not a sit down to read, it’s a book to read, contemplate and discuss.

I was browsing at target and this lovely book caught my eye. I most definitely judge books by their cover. Anywho, I picked it up not really knowing what I was in store for. Wow. This book is a must read. It leads you through a multitude of emotions and experiences we find ourself going through. This book not only does a very thorough job of explaining, but it gives great examples and downplays words so it’s easy to grasp no matter how big your vocabulary. It compares similarities and differences in very common emotions. The photos and illustrations done in this book are beautifully done. I have not a single complaint. This isn’t so much a self help book, but very informative and can lead to understanding yourself and others better. I will keep this on hand and reference it from time to time.
