A Great Guide to Taking Back Control of Your Life!
As a women¿s health care professional, I think The Confident Woman will be a boon to all women ¿ especially those of us who consider ourselves highly competent, and caring. Marjorie Hansen-Shaevitz shows us how, in our desire to be good employees or professionals, good mothers, helpful to teachers and coaches, and good wives, we too often say ¿yes¿, in spite of our already feeling overburdened. We have lost control of our lives. Being a confident woman means choosing what we want to do, and don¿t want to do ¿ and taking back control of how we spend our time. My husband has particularly enjoyed watching my transformation, as I became a woman who said yes when she meant it, and became a more poised and loving wife. There¿s one place where I disagree with Hansen-Shaevitz. She expresses the opinion that a mother¿s becoming a confident woman will make her a good role model for her daughter. As the mother of three young sons, I feel that being a confident woman has made me a better role model in terms of showing them the kind of person they will want for a wife. The book contributes to raising daughters and sons alike.

WHAT A BOOK!
I just finished reading The Confident Woman and I already want to go back and reread my favorite underlined parts. The 'Be Good to Yourself Breaks' at the end of each chapter are fantastic. After reading it, I felt more uplifted, more resolved and definitely more confident! I've ordered copies for my female collegues and my two daughters-in-law. I'm even considering a corporate seminar for women based on the themes of the book. No matter where you fall on the confidence pendulum, this book is for you! Thanks Marjorie. This one will be on my bedside table for a long time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
