Van Tongeren gives the unassuming trait of humility a much-needed rebrand. He explains why the humble enjoy a more secure sense of self, handle challenges better, and are often the people we like the most. Humbleness grants the holder an accurate view of reality: by seeing where we have room to improve, we can grow. By admitting our doubts, we can learn. And we can truly connect with others despite our differences. - adapted from jacket
