Description (Author Website)

In Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham reveals the powerful key to bring fulfillment, peace, and control into a woman's life.
In today's world, can a woman truly "have it all"? A fulfilling career full of passion and performance? A belief that she is truly becoming the best, authentic version of herself? A happy, healthy life outside of work?
Countless women would roll their eyes at the possibility. Work is overwhelming. And for many of them, add the necessities of family and home. It all feels disconnected, out of control, and relentless.
In Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham reveals the powerful key to help women draw enough strength from life to feel fulfilled, loved, successful, and in control. Even more, he helps women reconnect with their purpose and gives a starting point for change. A research-based message that applies to work and life, Find Your Strongest Life shows women how they really can have it all . . . the right kind of all.

When I first got this book I really wondered if I was going to like it. I had never heard of this author before so I had no idea what his credentials were. After reading it, I'm not sure I really agree with what he has to say.

While I think it's important for women to see themselves as we really are vs how we THINK we're perceived by others, I think we've heard this message ad nauseum prior to this. I don't think anything new was really presented in this book. I don't think it can hurt to hear again how fabulous we are, but I don't think this book contains anything groundbreaking.

Honestly, I felt like it was another man telling us how we should feel. I found the whole concept a little arrogant.

I volunteered to read and review this book as part of the Thomas Nelson Book Review Bloggers Team, and was sent a free copy of the book by the publisher to review.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
