To me brown rice is OK, but have never been a rice lover. It is OK, and sometimes a dish cannot be made without it, but it is just to me so-so.
But try it. You will never know if you like it or not if you do not give the stuff a shot.
OK, if you don't cook the first batch the way you want it, heck, it is just rice.
The only way to learn is to not be afraid to fail. We all do. And most of us regularly.
But that is how we learn; once we are able to accept our inevitable failures, we try things. And grow.
Just my take on things. Try the rice.
