You probably know that I’ve written four books myself but don’t worry, I’m not going to pitch MY books here. Instead, I’m going to suggest five great books written by women and I’ll tell you one thing I learned from each of them.
Five Great Books for Women
1. Wander Woman by Marcia Reynolds.
I love Marcia’s concept of a “Keyword to Happiness.” You develop a word that sums up your life’s goals and invoke that keyword on an ongoing basis.
2. The Dragonfly Effect by Jennifer Aaker.
Jennifer provides concrete examples of ways to make social media work. Bottom line: Small acts create big change—virally and over time.
3. The Right Sisters by Julia Rhodes and Patricia Harrelson.
It’s amazing how many cool products were invented by women, including the KleenSlate developed by the author.
4. 10-10-10 by Suzy Welch.
The premise of Suzy’s book: Before you make a decision, consider how it will affect you in 10 minutes, 10 months and 10 years.
5. 5 Simple Steps to Take Your Marriage from Good to Great by Terri Orbuch.
The key lesson Terri taught me was this: Women show love through conversations; men show love through actions.
