As a 56 yo woman, I felt that much of this book didn't apply. I wish I'd known that before purchasing.
I like Rachel's reading and positive attitude. I like that she has had hardships and comes across as one among many struggling, not as someone looking down on others. I'd def recommend this book to a younger woman. Perhaps a new mom or someone just getting started in the work world.

In her work with countless powerful, successful women over the last 20 years, best-selling author and financial educator Barbara Stanny found that most women's problems with money have little to do with money itself, but rather their fear of or ambivalence toward power. Instead of pushing women to pursue financial success in the traditional fashion, Sacred Success seeks to redefine power from a feminine perspective.

As I listened to Barbara Stanny's writing, I got increasingly inspired to be all I can be and not apologize for being in my power. I can't wait to see how the wisdom of her words manifests in my life as I get bigger and move mountains.

  • The State of Affairs

  • Rethinking Infidelity

An affair: It can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. Adultery has existed since marriage was invented, and so, too, the prohibition against it - in fact it has a tenacity that marriage can only envy. Iconic couples' therapist and best-selling author of Mating in Captivity Esther Perel returns with a groundbreaking and provocative look at infidelity, arguing for a more nuanced and less judgmental conversation about our transgressions.

As usual, Esther Perel, has a strong message that merits paying close attention to. Her keen insights to all angles of an affair was enlightening. There is no judgement in the tone of the book and no over-empathizing with the partner of the one who cheats. We need books that encourage more open conversations like this one. It acknowledges our humanity and fallibility and makes no promises that humans will ever do better. I appreciate how Esther addresses the sex addiction question. I am a believer that this is a real and debilitating disease. Perel draws no conclusion, rather she points to research and to the individuals to determine how to view the behavior. I highly recommend this book.
