Book Review - Find Your Strongest Life: What the Happiest and Most Successful Women Do Differently

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. 

The above text is what the Publisher states about this book. I was at first a little skeptical at the idea of reading a book written for women by a man, but after reading this book, I was amazed at how insightful this book was not only for myself (as I am a father of two girls), but also for my wife as well. Mr. Buckingham does a fine job at using research as well as practical examples to provide readers a good glimpse at what they can do to make their life a strong and fulfilling one!

I particularly enjoyed the free flowing nature of the book which allows the reader to understand what the author is getting at and the recap at the end of each chapter with the most salient points that he was trying to get the reader to take out of the chapter.

As a father and husband I also enjoyed the section in the book about Tactics for stronger kids, as I want my girls to be strong, happy and fulfilled women as they grow up and I hope that I can help them understand the concepts that Mr. Buckingham showcases in this book.

The below video does a good job at explaining some of the crux of the book itself, I encourage all of you to look at this and see how you relate to the women and the concepts that are being raised.

Finally, if you would like to have a copy of  this book for yourself, I encourage you to check it out either at the publisher or on to pick up a copy for yourself!
