The Myth of the Nice Girl
















I highly recommend for females in the workplace, especially those who are “too nice,” to read, The Myth of the Nice Girl: an excellent, educational and useful novel. It is a book that will give you hope and guidance towards a successful future in your personal life and in the business world.

Educated: A Memoir

Tara Westover is a masterful storyteller – I couldn’t put this book down and finished it in under 3 days. The book is broken up into three parts: First, Westover’s unconventional upbringing starts in a junkyard, growing up with eccentric parents who refuse traditional healthcare and government “oversight”. Aside from an outdated homeschooling science book, Westover does not receive any formal education until the age of 17. As she gets older, Westover finds herself seeking a different life – one involving leaving her small town and going to college. Westover’s experience in applying for college as a non-traditional student provides the reader with a glimpse into her resilience and mental fortitude.
