Ms Career Girl Fall Reading Buffet: Something For Everyone

couch time

There’s always a flood of new books coming out.  At Ms Career Girl, we have enough review  pitches come our way to fill a small library.  So, we try to review those we think most interesting to you, our readers.  We look for those that are inspirational, those that provide new insights to break through the barriers that women often encounter in life.  And sometimes, just the edgy, unique, or just plain entertaining.

If you’ve got some pre-holiday reading time available, here’s our list of four that has something for everyone.  Enjoy!

MOM.B.A.: Essential Business Advice From One Generation To The Next

The older you get, the more you realize, and appreciate, the wisdom possessed by your Mom.  If you happen to have a Mom who’s a CEO, that’ll include a wealth of business insights. But if you don’t, MOM.B.A.,  by Karyn Schoenbart, is a perfect surrogate.

Comprehensive yet easy reading, reading MOM.B.A. will make you feel like you’re sitting at the kitchen table having coffee with your Mom.  While she doles out a wealth of insightful life-experience jewels.  From education, to networking, to dealing with those tough situations, this is one you’ll keep coming back to over and over.  You may even want to keep it on the kitchen counter, right next to the coffee maker!

Awakening A Leader’s Soul

Let’s face it, business, leadership, and entrepreneurial books can start to look a lot alike.  If you want something a little different, especially if you’re the introspective type this book by Gaurav Bhalla is for you.

There’s no denying that our country, our world, is lacking in genuinely ethical political and business leaders.  It can be frustrating and discouraging to watch.  How about taking a soulful look at what’s wrong and making changes through the eyes and words of the poets?  This unusual approach to creating better leadership, Awakening A Leader’s Soul,  isn’t something you’ll devour in one sitting.  It’s a read that will provoke deep thought and that you’ll savor like a snifter of fine brandy.


The Integrity Advantage

You’ve had one of these experiences.  Someone passes by you, and although you don’t know them (consciously), you’re stopped in your tracks because something just resonates.  Or, in the case of The Integrity Advantage by Kelley Kosow, you do what I did.  You pick up a book, randomly flip it open and the first paragraph you read leaves you in tears.

The Integrity Advantage is not just another book to read.  It speaks to that part of you that knows truth even when you may be in the midst of a mental storm.  This is not a “should read”  book, it’s a must read.  Get ready for a nothing less than profound look at yourself, and as the subtitle says “step into your truth, love your life, and claim your magnificence.”




You Can Win

Author Shiv Khera published this book in 2014, and it has sold over 3,500,000 copies.  It’s been distributed in sixteen different languages.  Certainly, those facts alone speak for the quality of his message.

In what I would call one of the best summations of the mass of success books available, You Can Win is a compendium of the best information out there.  Easy to read, full of on-point examples and guidance, this one should be required reading for all college business majors.  The author’s trademark is –

Winners don’t do different things, they do things differently.

And that’s exactly what the book shows you.
