CHERYL STRAYED’S WORDS HAVE INSPIRED MILLIONS AROUND THE WORLD. THEY HAVE BEEN TATTOOED ON BODIES, NEEDLEPOINTED ONTO PILLOWS, PRINTED ON MUGS AND T-SHIRTS AND SHARED AMONG READERS AS PERSONAL MANTRAS.

BRAVE ENOUGH WILL DRAW FROM THE WIDE RANGE OF STRAYED’S WRITINGS AND HONE IN ON MORE THAN 100 OF HER MOST POPULAR QUOTES—QUOTES THAT CAPTURE HER WISDOM, COURAGE, AND OUTSPOKEN HUMOR. QUOTES THAT REMIND US WHY “STRAYED’S WORLDVIEW—HER EMPATHY, HER NONJUDGMENT, HER BELIEF IN THE FUNDAMENTAL LOGIC OF PEOPLE’S EMOTIONS AND EXPERIENCES DESPITE OCCASIONAL EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY—BEGINS TO SEEP INTO READERS’ CONSCIOUSNESS IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY CAN APPLY HER GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT TO THEIR OWN AND, FOR A FEW HOURS AT LEAST, BECOME BETTER PEOPLE” (ANNA HOLMES, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW).
