Riassunto: Brave is the first major memoir to describe what it's like to be chronically shy and then to overcome it. It takes the reader on a complete journey, from early life and overwhelming, inexplicable shyness to later years of gradual comprehension, social adaptation, and eventual understanding and peace of mind. From beginning to end, Helen Rivas-Rose's unstated purpose never wavers: her message is to help inspire other shy people to overcome their own pain. This book will help the non-shy to understand better their shy friends and family members. In this regard it's a must read for teachers.
Lynne Henderson PhD, Co-Director with Philip Zimbardo PhD, The Shyness Institute in Palo Alto, California writes: Brave is well written, thoughtful, and important as an example of a personal journey through shyness. Helen Rivas-Rose shows how capitalizing on the strengths of shyness, and intelligently helping yourself to grow beyond painful, traumatic experiences in childhood, can lead to a powerfully meaningful and rich life. It is compelling to see how Helen began to recognize and build on her considerable talents, and then enjoy them. Shy people will benefit from reading this memoir.
This book is a wonderful gift. Helen Rivas-Rose has given us a compelling account of her journey, in the midst of an eccentric and powerful family, traveling the world, all the while suffering with shyness. Brave persuades us to look deeper at shyness and its effects on children and adults alike. Readers who feel misunderstood or disconnected from this very social world will find inspiration through her story.

The author divides her time between two countries and two picturesque towns: Kennebunk, Maine, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She cultivates family, friendships and social activities, while always finding time to pursue her hard-won passion, writing. Developing her artistic endeavors became essential to overcoming her shyness, and together with her social interests, constantly feed her vital interest in life.
