If I am being honest with myself, I really don’t know how to write reviews on books. But I think that is okay because I want to share with the world today few nonfiction books that I think anyone in their late or mid-twenties should read.
There are two books that caught my attention as non-fiction and self-help books. I generally like reading personal development books and connecting to it on another level.
So first one should not be a surprise in 2017, at least I don’t think so. It #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso. It’s not a “How To” book or extremely hard to read. It is an easy read and brutally honest. And be prepared to see Trump quotes in it. As someone that graduated and worked in HR the tips that Sophia is giving, from employers perspective is amazing. You learn and hear certain things throughout your education and experience from applying for jobs but the tips that she gave are practical and on point. Also, resume and cover letter advice is beyond great, by far the most accurate. As I mentioned, it is not a “How To” book, it more of, “Please learn from my mistakes” sort of a book. Which in my opinion is refreshing and what every adult in 2017 needs. If you are looking for great and steps on how to adult in a more modern and again, honest way, check out “You Are A Badass” by Jen Sincero. Pretty much written for this generation of so-called Millennials. Honest, professional and a combination of a workbook and a read through the book; that is how in short I would describe this books. Jen is taking her practical knowledge and letting the reader know how to “adult”, ( for the lack of better words ), improve yourself and get it together.
Both books are written by female powerhouses. And it is 2017, the world is still pretty much male predominated and I have read both male and female nonfiction – self-help books and girls kick ass, to be honest.
With that being said, I think that at the end of the day if you are a dude or a girlboss, I am pretty sure both books speak out to all humans today.
