I've had past relationships and friendships with women who weren't mentally strong and it was both confusing and frustrating to deal with. These were amazing women with great potential but always spoke negatively about themselves. This book helped put into perspective why they were that way and what I can do differently to better help. More men should be reading this!
An average score as far as self-help books go. That being said, I can see how many would benefit tremendously from her words and suggestions. The format is simple and is broken down in an approachable manner. A huge complaint I have though is there is so much man bashing in this book and no women bashing. Women can treat other women just as horrendously as men but it's not mentioned.
I'm filing this one away for future reference, but my quick and dirty read of this Advanced Review Copy is positive. Morin is re-treading familiar territory, but manages to put a new spin on the topic with her case studies and examples in each chapter. The book is perfectly fine in a normal straight-through read, but could also work well as individual topics for introspection or journal explorations. I also think it could work well for a reader to tackle the chapters as they apply to the individ...
Clear, concise, well laid out, and inspirational. I got a lot out of this book.
Essentially, the book elaborated 13 key points that woman could change their mindset to make their life less miserable. The content wasn't just a random opinion from the author. It consists of researches, statistics and real case studies from her patients as well. The books showed that women in the society have been through a lot. Society hasn't been kind to women, and they always put so much pressure to women comparing to what men received. Not only the book fitted for all women in the world, t...
I am a huge fan of Amy Morin’s 13 Things Mentally Strong...series and this is a great addition. Even though the list contains familiar precepts, the meat of the text is in the examples and in the sound advice. Her expertise really shines through. If anything, this book is a great reminder when unhealthy thoughts creep in. Thanks to the publisher for the advance reading copy.
I really enjoyed this book and found it to be very well researched. It had a lot of helpful tips and great motivation. I would recommend it for others to read.
I have been on a self help book kick this year, hence why I am not reading as much as I normally do, because for some reason, self help books take me longer to read. Nevertheless, I continue to read them and occasionally come across ones that seem like they were written for me. Girl, I know there are other books that are getting way more traction and hype, but this one tops those. I struggle with a lot of self confidence issues that also play into other facets of my life/personality. This explai...
I’ve covered this series of books before, but I found this one particularly interesting as the mother of three daughters during a time when it seems more important than ever to help women find their own voice and channel confidence that can lead to lives with more joy and meaning. OK, that was a mouthful and it sounded like shrink speak, but there is a lot in this book that’s relevant to the mature woman as well. Morin covers everything from social comparison and pressure to social media and sex...
Some helpful stuff here, but it could’ve been a quarter of the number of pages. I still gave it three stars because it addressed what many self-help type books don’t: the systems (i.e. patriarchy, capitalism) in place that create an atmosphere in which only certain types of people and personalities are held up as templates for the rest of us.
This book was just “ok”. I didn’t have any new revelations while reading it and didn’t feel overly empowered to change my life because of it. But if this is your first “self-help” book ever, you might benefit from it more than I did.
Didn’t learn anything new from this read. Proves we have all the answers within we just need to ask the right questions. Believe in yourself, never apologize for who you are and go balls to the wall in everything you do.

13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don't Do felt so good to take in. The book encourages women to build their mental muscles so they can become the strongest and best versions of themselves, as well as create a ripple effect that will inspire others to become mentally stronger. I want to think that I'm mentally strong, but I am self-aware and know that I will always have to continue to work on myself. I felt free and a sense of relief while reading this book, as it provided great reminders of what
It's very rare for me to find a self help book I enjoy. It's extra rare when I finish it. But I enjoyed this book a lot. But my rating is only for books in the self improvement category. What I liked:- Chapters each had enough anecdotes woven in to feel like a story so I could enjoy it- Advice was simple and practical- Statistics and factoids worked into each chapter were what really interested me - in particular because in every case there was evidence about how women are set up to fail in all
This isn't the book I expected, but I was very much surprised and pleased with it! I never really thought I wasn't "mentally strong", but this definitely offers great tips for improving. As a mom of daughters, it made me more aware of the challenges they will encounter in their lives, challenges that I've encountered and didn't even realize they were a source of anxiety and frustration. I am so glad I listened to this book! There were times when the author was a little long-winded about a topic
I love Morin's books. I think this one is something women everywhere must read because it tackles a lot of ways women are brought up and the downsides of leaning into those tendencies. But she does so with illustrative examples and positive action items everyone can learn from. I know there are plenty of stories in this book that felt relatable and many questions I seriously want to sit down and ask myself. A great book for reflection and action.
May not be a 5 star reading for everyone, but I felt like this was helpful and gave me practical tips to start big and small changes. It also helped me see and learn my own incorrect patterns or thinking, reasons why I respond the way I do and how to improve the way I think and feel. I loved the case studies and felt like I could relate to a majority of her clients and scenarios. I appreciate the authentic sharing and perspectives given in this book. 👍🏻👍🏻
Great book! Highly recommend for any woman at any age!

Really important reminders. Morin’s style is incredibly gentle and kind.
3.5 stars rounded up."They found that the apologies that were the most effective in repairing the relationship contained the following components:1. expression of regret2. explanation of what went wrong3. acknowledgment of responsibility4. declaration of repentance5. offer of repair6. request for forgiveness...If your choices have hurt someone, apologize. That won't make what you did ok, but saying you're sorry may help you and the person you hurt move forward in a more productive manner.""Make
Love this book beyond words. It’s probably the book where I put so much highlight on. While I don’t agree much of what the writer has said regarding gender differences (I grew up in a family where there are no strict differences in roles, for example, I was a tomboy that played video games and play with swords and robot toys all the time), this book is an eye opener for me who often doubt myself. I enjoyed reading the explanations, past research, and the case studies that the writer put to prove...
I listened to this on audiobook, narrated by the author Amy Morin and it was absolutely wonderful! Inspiring stories of strong women used as examples for each of her "don'ts" on the list. I recommend this for every woman. It's a hard look in the mirror and offers an opportunity for self-reflection and growth. Highly motivating!
Good tools. A little dry to read. Favorite quote: “Social media drives comparisons...a study found that a woman’s mood and body image are likely to decline after just 10 minutes spent browsing on Facebook.”
This book was okay. It was a lot of the methods and strategies I’ve read in other books and not much new content. That being said, all very good things to keep in mind as a woman.
Overall good reminders for women. Stay strong, speak up, and encourage other women. Thought this could be a tab bit shorter.
Some helpful advice was presented in this book and it had alot of valid points.
Great book. I highly recommend this book.
