The Woman’s Book Of Courage – Book Review

Ever feel like you need some courage? Ever feeling a bit less than brave? Everyone, if they’re honest, can probably relate to that feeling.

Maybe you can’t relate to the feeling of picking a book to read based on the cover, but check this out!

I couldn’t say no to this book with its cosmic-looking cover, with colors that I absolutely love. I had to say yes when I had the opportunity to read it.

Thank you, Mango Publishing! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

The cover is somewhat misleading… but not in a bad way. Here’s what I mean. When I look at the cover and see the word “meditations,” my thoughts instantly go to religion or spirituality. Perhaps yours would too, but this book is not about religion or prayer.

This book is written by Sue Patton Thoele, and she was a psychotherapist. You might be someone who thinks of self-help as being a spiritual journey, and if so, you might really like this book! For me though, I would not describe this as a book of meditations, but more like stories or conversations between the reader and the author.

And good conversations they are. I haven’t finished reading the book yet, because I’m savoring it, you might say. Each page is short, and it doesn’t take long, but this isn’t the kind of book you want to rush through. This book is all about self-empowerment. Patton Thoele wants you to be kind to yourself, think positive thoughts to yourself, and to grow in your life.

And isn’t that a great message we could all use?

One thought on “The Woman’s Book Of Courage – Book Review

  1. “this book is not about religion or prayer.”

    Of course not. Mediation has nothing to do with religion and spirituality. Of course it was religious monks and guus and swamis who invented the various meditation techniques and I learnt about meditation in my gym’s yoga class and at the local ashram. But they couldn’t care less if any attendent was on a spiritual journey or had any religious feelings.

    It’s not even an eastern thing as the christians meditate, too. They just call it contemplation.
