This is an excellent book for the female who's feeling stuck in a rut...whether it be in her personal or professional life.

Using all the amazing introspective quizzes (e.g. career assessment) and action-oriented steps, she'll figure out what's blocking her. And become ready to take steps to change her life.

It starts with bravery.

There are so many of us in a quarter-life or mid-life crisis, and we just need to sort out the past to move forward. Then there's the fabulous empty nester or corporate gal who's ready to retire and start something new. Maybe something more rewarding on her own.

This book covers all the seven damaging things (power gaps) that are holding us back:

--Not recognizing special talents
--Communicating from fear
--Not asking for what we deserve
--Isolating from influential support
--Saying yes instead of no
--Losing site of our dream
--Allowing past trauma to define us

I recommend this short, easy-to-read book and to follow the advice and workbook-like questions within it if you want to become The Most Powerful You.

I was looking forward to reading this book as the idea of a most powerful version of myself was definitely appealing and I think there are some useful lessons within the book. For me this book is aimed more at those women who are working within the corporate world. Many of the case studies within it focus on women who are looking to find success and the methods Kathy uses helps them to identify where the weakness, or development area is and then the tools to move forward.

I am self employed and run my own business and was looking for something that would help me to develop my personal strength and improve my success within the business. I found that many of the people in the book seemed to be employed by large conglomerates and therefore I struggled to relate to the situations and interpret how the methods could work for me. 

This book works using case studies to illustrate the methods used so if you prefer a book which with give you a list of actions and activities to do then this might not work for you. It is easy to read and the case studies are interesting and help to highlight the many challenges within the work environment. If I was still working for a large corporation I think this would have had a bigger impact on me.
