I just finished the Brene Brown book Daring Greatly.  It is a very powerful description of her research into how to become connected and whole hearted.  http://books.google.com/books?id=cyRDrMMX8WoC&source=gbs_slider_cls_metadata_1_mylibrary  For a short video on what the book is about check out her Ted Talk:  http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability.html  Twenty minutes could change the way you look at yourself, your students, your family and possible the world.
