Thank you so much for @BookTasters and Dr Rana Al-Falaki for providing me this opportunity.

I could choose from a list of books, but when I saw this one, I knew this was what I needed. No, the beautiful cover had nothing to do with it. It came at the perfect time, because I just fisished school and was about to look for a job.

Although it has some spiritual elements, and I'm not a spiritual person, I didn't really feel spirituality on it until the very end. It was like talking to a very good ps

Women Who Want More should be a staple on every woman's bookshelf. Dr Rana Alfalaki has written this book so beautifully, I felt like it was a heartfelt conversation with a friend. Each chapter was full of positivity, while addressing issues that most of us probably struggle with. It was completely addictive to read and easy to process the information on offer and I think this was helped by the summaries at the end of each chapter. I absolutely adored this book, it was just what I needed and cam ...more

First of all thank-you to @BookTasters for giving me an option to choose, and Dr Rana for sending me this incredible copy. She is the most humble person out there and very easy to contact. She is amazing.
Before reading this incredible piece of literature, I thought that only good self help book out there is by Mark Manson, but this non fictional book had me on the edge of my seat while reading it.
I laughed, I cried, it made me happy, it taught me stuff, it gave me pleasure, and pain and helped

I loved this book! It was very enlightening and informative. I was able to learn a bit about myself as I read. The fact that it was written as though I was having a conversation with the author made it better. There were so many tools and tips that’s I’m going to use in my everyday life. I’ve been trying to find a way to get myself back on the path a set out and this book have brought me one step closer to doing that.

‘Women Who Want More’ is a remarkable item for your bookshelf which is skillfully jotted down by Dr. Rana Alfalaki. Before, I share my review, I am extremely sorry for all the loss she had borne, when she lost her mother and all other disheartening events afterwards, especially the one she faced when she was just twelve years old, not even a teen. BRAVO! Dr. Rana Alfalaki, you were already a super-hero even before healing the world. SO PROUD OF YOU AND YOUR EFFORTS!!

I personally love how this book makes it possible for you to be actively involved in the process of getting more. I assure you, that this isn’t your everyday self-help and no, it isn’t yet another motivational book that you read and toss back on the shelf. As a matter of fact, you need a journal, a book and a pen to take notes and do the action points highlighted in the book.

What I love about this book:

This book is both an eye-opener and a motivator for me. It made me realize some of my ways in dealing with life circumstances were not helping me to be an empowered woman. I pondered about my past experiences - personal life, work/career, social life and relationships, and this book made me think that some things are really out of our control and some conflicts can be resolved by how we react to the things that we can’t control. I love how Dr. Rana narrated stories t

WOMEN WHO WANT MORE – RANA AL FALAKI is a practical book for readers to lead a balanced life in six aspects; relationship, career, health, finances, personal development and enjoyment. The author offered information on a full spectrum of these aspects and make a metaphor about a flower with petals,

“You are that flower and stand in the center of it. Each of those petals represents an aspect of your life.”

And how crucial it is to balance these aspects. Furthermore, this book is full of insightful

I must say, I’m only 23 years old; I’ve had a great life, beautiful childhood, unproblematic adolescence and a pretty good adulthood so far. Which made me realize how blessed I am! And how thankful I am, for my mom, with whom I have an amazing, open relationship with, my dad, who has always been there to tell me I can and I will, my three older sisters that are supportive and listen to me, my friends, who are there, no matter what.

I am so very excited to be sitting here right now to tell you how much I LOVED this book! It’s a self-help book that guides you through the process of becoming more aware and attentive of important areas in your life. Dr. Rana Al-Falaki takes the extra step to lay it all out in very simple explanations and includes optional worksheets and exercises throughout the book if you’re willing to go the extra mile with her.

When I first picked up the book to read and subsequently review, I had it in the back of my mind it's going to be women stuff and about women blazing trails. Being the curious cat I am I thought what an opportunity to dive into the world of women and thier various peculiar challenges and how they surmount them.

I was partially wrong.

Yes, it's geared towards women's problem but generally speaking, the challenges are laid out not just for women alone but also men. In fact, men could do a job of usi

What is this book about? It’s an inspirational self-help book for women who want more from their lives and it’s literally a manual that is crafted beautifully to show you how to ask and demand for more from yourself and your loved ones in all the different aspects of your life. From relationships (platonic, romantic or otherwise), work, health and fitness, spirituality, selfcare and so on.

Note: This book was offered to me for free in exchange for a honest review as part of a promo.

As part of a initiative by @BookTasters (on twitter). This is the second book I chose to read and review.

Before I start I'd like to point out that although the title says Women who want more, I believe, after reading this, it can even be applied to men as well, even more so than to women! Especially since I feel like men don't usually admit to the things that the book talks about.

The book title and the summary are enough to tell you what it is about. Although I will tell you what makes it stand out from the other self help books I've read.

One Word Review: Helpful

Short Review:
In the other books, you get to understand what's wrong, you might even know how to help yourself but do you actually practice it? Most of us don't.
But this book is written in such a way that you'll have to practice it too, courtesy the exercises given at the end of each chapter.

Women Who Want More is a book that will truly move your spirit and will awaken the Woman Warrior in you.

I admire the honesty of the Author, Dr. Rana Al-Falaki that her book does not contain any exact medical or legal explanations of how we can overcome some of our own thoughts that drags us to the depths of loneliness and feeling of un-usefulness.

I started out reading Dr Rana's Women Who Want More, just to review it. Thanks to @Booktasters and Dr. Rana for the opportunity. Half way into Chapter One, I realized I myself wanted more from life but was stuck and didn't even know it. This book delivers practical ways to break out from limitations, reach out and achieve more in any area of life.

If life comes with a manual, then this is it!

Dr. Rana gathered the most essential tips and information we need to know to have a balanced, effective life with lowest amount of guilt! This book came just in time for me, as I was struggling with my obligations as a mother, wife, daughter, personal and social life, work and my personal space!

The book reads very easily and holds tons of advice for women in all aspects of their lives. I'd recommend to those struggling to find balance in their career and personal life. I would have liked to know more of the author's personal experiences before having children. The mother/married experience tends to overshadow the themes of resiliency and strength from within.
