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

Did not finish book. Stopped at 30%.
I just don't think I am into Brene Brown? I bought this book new and felt obligated to read it - but it has sat on my shelf for a very long time, partially read, and not enjoyed in the least bit. I'm going to put it in a little free library and hope that it gives insight to someone who needs it.
