Have you ever wondered as to what this life has to offer?
Are you the one who has been complaining constantly about LIFE?
Do you think that the LIFE is not treating you properly?
Most importantly, "ARE YOU A WORKING WOMAN?"
If your answer is YES(especially for the last question), this book is certainly for you. The author of this book is a renowned Neuroanesthesiologist who herself had faced lot of events/incidents in her life which has made her to pen this book.
The book was written so well that almost every chapter in this book has a mention of her own personal experience. This doesn't mean, it is her own and may differ from person to person. While this is true to some extent, the basic ideology behind this book is to ensure that none of the working women feel that she has been left alone or she has to carry all the burden over her shoulder(unless she is a Single Mother with young kids).
The book is a real interesting read since each of the 77 chapters does not stretch beyond 3 pages. The content is given in short and crisp manner which makes it really appealing. It is not possible for me to talk about all the 77 chapters as I may end up giving more information than required. Hence, I would like to highlight some of the topics which caught my attention, the moment I read. This includes but not limited to:
1. Be Positive
2. Ask for help from willing workers
3. Voice Out Expectations
5. Talk, Express, Share
6. Accept Compliments
7. Avoid Negativity
8. Stay Healthy
9. Know Your Weakness
10. Forgive Yourself
11. Be True to Yourself
13. Be Content
14. Stand Your Ground
15. Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
By now, you would have got a fair idea as to what this book could offer. Yes. It covers almost all the major aspects in one's life in a subtle manner and though this was mainly about the constraints of a working woman, even I felt that many of the points mentioned here are applicable to me as well, since I have also come across some of them in my life. As it is rightly said in this book "Expression and Sharing is not only about problems, disappointments and complaints but more so about love, happiness, joy and respect".
This book would serve as a perfect guide in your personality development (and can also help in a greater extent to have a happy and contended family)as it is in a DIY(Do It Yourself) format since no one can own up your life, commitments and trouble but YOU...
