Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Jennifer Read Hawthrone, Marci Shimoff and a team of women and men writers have created a wonderful collection of 101 stories to open the hearts and rekindle the spirits of women.
As with all the Chicken Soul books, “Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul” is a collection of stories that will warm your heart, bring tears to your eyes, give you hope, challenge you to overcome any problems you may face and make you experience a full range of emotions.
With the wide range of stories in this collection, there are many that are relatable to any woman or anyone that has a woman in their lives. The book is broken down into categories:
- On Love
- On Attitude and Self-Esteem
- Overcoming Obstacles
- On Marriage
- On Motherhood
- Special Moments
- Live Your Dream
- On Aging
- Higher Wisdom
- Across the Generations
Some of the authors of the stories included are very famous, for example, Maya Angelou, Dolly Parton, Kathie Gifford, and Oprah Winfrey; but many you will not be familiar with previously. However, after reading their story, you will feel that you know them quite well. The insights they provide into the lives and loves of women will make you think about your own life differently.
After you read this book once, you will read it again and again. It is always fresh and new each time you pick it up and each time you will learn something fresh. You’ll find a story that you believe there can be none better, but you turn the page to find one you love even more.
If you want to purchase a great gift for any woman who likes to read, this is a perfect choice. There is simply no woman friend or relative who would not benefit from this wonderful collection of real-life experiences of real women.
There simply are no words to express how much Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul by Jack Canfield and others has changed the way I look at life. I know that you will have the same experience. This is a ‘must-read’ book.
