Gorgeous photography, compelling design, and most of the writing is uplifting. Girlosophy really is better than the majority of available inspirational and advice books for teens.
Anthea Paul should, however, consider that the line she draws between guidance and outright dictation is sometimes fine. How do specific instructions on apparel and accessories follow the oft-repeated within advice to be true to one's self and make firm and passionate decisions?
Jun 29, Greta rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantastic-and-fierce-females , inspirational-nonfiction-and-wisdom. Just like the way in which my little iPod, "gret's pet" as I call it, in honor of a certain Buffalonian lady ; , always knows just what I need to hear, even when I myself don't!
She says in her introduction that the visual element of the text is essential and extraordinarily fresh [in the world of traditional self-help books:], and she believes in that this element lends her words added power because the emphasis on color and image "reflect s the truth that each one of us perceives the world uniquely I believe that as early as possible women need to develop a personal code of behavior and ethics by which to live.
It is critical to develop personal rules and boundaries We can go with our hearts and take great leaps of faith into the unknown on a more sustained basis if we know a solid platform is in place And I know that it is something to which I myself will come back to again and again as I encounter new joys, new challenges, new questions And I know I will find in its pages inspiration in the shape of colors, of words, of smiles, of fierce and open hearts May 23, Diane Mueller rated it really liked it.
One of my students brought this in for me to read. I read it quickly but I feel this would be a book that needs to be read slowly and careful thought given to what it says. I feel it has a lot of good advice for young women. I was told this author has many other books written for young women. Sep 11, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfict , young-adult. In an ideal world, every young women would be given this book by a beloved older female relative.
That's just a fantasy of mine. But this book has wonderful pictures and inspirational messages that are at once down to earth and uplifting Jul 24, Teenage Reads rated it it was amazing Shelves: , loved. What is the hardest thing in the world? Being a girl. Yes, in this society, being a girl trying to grow up and be able to stand on her own two feet is almost impossible at some points.
This book, for me, was a life savor. It truly made me open up into a more confident, self-aware person that I am today. And you too can, all you have to do is flip thi What is the hardest thing in the world? And you too can, all you have to do is flip this book open. It is not a self-help book. It does not tell you how to live your life, or that you are currently living it wrong. This book is more about opening yourself up for some self-love, confinement and to get rid of negative thoughts.
It encourages things like yoga, praying, thinking positively, and letting go of bad past experiences. With breath-taking photographs, it is full of pictures of women around the world, who are true and not Photoshop.
In the back it even gives a little bio about them and it gives us their name. It gives you helpful hints, like how to stay healthy, a relationship is not give and take but give and give, and that it is your choice to be happy. This book age range is between four and seventeen, but I believe it is a book for all the female in the world, who want to get back to nature and in touch with their spiritual side.
Anthea Paul is a goddess of the spirit world. Not only did she fill a page book with amazing pictures, but words and actions of encouragement for girls everywhere to embraces being a girl. This book made me feel beautiful, confident, and more flexible because of the yoga. Honestly this book deserves nothing lower that five stars out of five stars.
I read this book every summer for the past three years, and each year I feel closer and more complete with the universe. A truly amazing book that every girl should read. Feb 19, Sunny Rae rated it it was amazing. This book is a book for girls obviously and it isn't one you read and never again read. It has inspirational quotes, and sayings, and great cultural, and ethnical things in it. The photograohy in it is beautiful.
I just love it because it is different, telling you new and inspirational things about life, for young women. It makes you feel good after you read a few page at a time every now and then lol :]]. Apr 17, Princess Jamaima rated it it was amazing.
I thought It was a great guide book for any female go any age. This book made me want to improve myself to be better and not for anyone but myself. Sep 09, Logicalrunner rated it it was amazing. Every girls' and moms' of those girls' read.
Feb 15, Bianca B rated it really liked it. I have a confession to make: I actually hate self-help books. I hate the ability they have to talk down to you and simplify complex problems and seemingly add more and more to your neuroses: 'Only answer on the third ring if he calls you, but only after you wait 5 days! Any more or any less and he will slip through your fingers, girl! And you don't want to scare him off and end up sad and alone with nothing but cats milling around your feet and reruns of Glee to keep you company, do you?
But you know what? Photography and Design: The biggest drawcard for this book is its lush photography and colourful, quirky design. What basically translates into a graphic design student's orgasm with its highly-saturated photographs and bright disposition, while the design itself manages to remain fun and flighty without seeming too girlish or juvenile.
Its sense of vibrancy can appeal to anyone without overpowering the reader too much as type is diverse yet clear and use of colour consistent and complimenting photography well. Travelling all over the world from India to Australia to the UK to Peru and back again, the wanderlust is strong as it makes you want to reach into the photos themselves or at least travel on a whim to discover some of the hidden treasures this world has to offer. Such wisdom helps to give girls a clear view of what's most important, teaching us to live a healthy and full life, gain independence, setting goals for yourself, how to cope with obstacles in life, utilising our talent and creativity, how to relax and unwind, having realistic expectations with love and relationships unlike a lot of literature nowadays, obsession is not the answer , loving yourself and that men are not the enemy after all, among many others.
If I had to make one particular criticism about the advice Paul has given, it would have to be in regards to the Beauty section of the book and the vibe some of the content gave off that self-righteous vibe. Makeup and beauty can be an expression of individuality and content with our looks to some people. Conclusion: Paul's brand of self-empowerment serves as a great guide for girls of all ages, providing common sense and wisdom with a spiritual backdrop that doesn't border too close to the spacey or sanctimonious.
