This book did give me some insight to chew on, but not very much. Hearing the stories was kind of I interesting, but most of the book seemed like common sense to me, not entirely illuminating. It also got pretty repetitive at the end.

This was an interesting read but at times did not seem to reflect a global population of women. (Spoiler alert)- Chapters 7 and 8 appear to have more unity as far as application and this is not to say previous sections were any less informative. Over all not a bad read and the author includes several resources for readers interested in additional information.

The most highlighted ebook I have in my possession. Maybe a more detailed review in future, too difficult now.
