So you have the blahs, your life is moving nowhere, or worse still you’re in a holding pattern where your daily routines are so meticulously planned there is no room for spontaneity or change. Well, North Carolina author Corrie Woods has produced a refreshing little tome for women that extols them to move beyond ordinary living into extraordinary living, simply by changing ingrained habits and repetitive thinking patterns. Her guidelines for becoming a BOLD (Brilliant, Outrageous, Luminary Diva) woman are simple yet provide a subtle wake up call for women who are either disillusioned or simply bored with their lives.
Generally, I eschew self-help books because I feel like my life is just fine, thank you very much; however, I enjoyed the section on how to step out of the familiar and into new territories. This book is written for any woman, whether you have a PhD or a GED, you will get something out of The Woman’s Field Guide that will give you a little ah-ha moment (as I like to call them). Divided into three sections with succinct chapters, Ms. Woods presents a straightforward outline for living that can be revisited time and again.
