4.0 out of 5 stars An exploration of 87 different emotions
By C on November 30, 2021
This book by social worker and professor Brené Brown, describes 87 different emotions and experiences, and how they affect our lives. The book is divided into 13 chapters, with 272 pages in the digital version, not including Notes.

In the Introduction, Brown describes her childhood, and her lifelong fascination with emotions. She explains that at an early age, she was able to predict how people would respond in certain situations, because of her acute powers of observation. She considered this her “super power”, as she was able to see things coming that other people seemed to be unaware of. As she got older, she decided to focus her academic studies on emotions, and the connections between how we think, feel and act. Brown explains how she learned that the ability to accurately recognize and label emotions ( referred to as emotional granularity), is extremely important. With this in mind, Brown worked with a team of therapists to compile this list of 87 of the most essential emotions to identify and understand.

As Brown covers these emotions and experiences, she focuses on four elements: biology, biography, behavior, and backstory. She analyzes these underlying factors as she describes each emotion, and gives you the tools to be able to identify and talk about them. Throughout the book, there are many quotes, pictures, diagrams and even some comics; all designed to help explain these emotions and how they affect our lives.

Overall I found this book to be helpful and informative. I would have liked Brown to go a bit deeper on some of these topics, as I am particularly interested in the biology of emotions, but I understand that that wasn't really the point of the book. This is more like an expanded glossary of emotions; brief explanations of each one so you can more accurately articulate your feelings.
