The emergence of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have awakened society and encouraged women to find their voice and claim their power. International bestselling author and leading global expert on mental strength Amy Morin turns her focus to feminism, explaining what it means—and what it takes—to be a mentally strong woman in the age of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. The emergence of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have awakened society and encouraged women to find their voice and claim their power. But to do this, women must learn to improve their own mental strength. Contending with a host of difficult issues—from sexual assault on college campuses, to equal pay and pay gaps, to mastering different negotiation styles—demands psychological toughness. In this crucial book, prominent psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker Amy Morin gives women the techniques to build mental muscle—and just as important, she teaches them what not to do. What does it mean to be a mentally strong woman? Delving into critical issues like sexism, social media, social comparison, and social pressure, Amy addresses this question and offers thoughtful, intelligent advice, practical tips, and specific strategies and combines them with personal experiences, stories from former patients, and both well-known and untold examples from women from across industries and pop culture. Throughout, she explores the areas women—and society at large—must focus on to become (and remain) mentally strong. Amy reveals that healthy, mentally tough women don’t insist on perfection; they don’t compare themselves to other people; they don’t see vulnerability as a weakness; they don’t let self-doubt stop them from reaching their goals. Wise, grounded, and essential, 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do can help every woman flourish—and ultimately improve our society as well.

    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.

    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 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.

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 explains my newfound need to read every self help book I can find that pertains to women. I like to think I am a mentally strong woman, but upon further self exploration, I realized I have a lot to work on. The books is broken into chapters that focus on each of the 13 things mentally strong women don't do. 1. They don't compare themselves to other people. 2. They don't insist on perfection. 3. They don't see vulnerability as a weakness. 4. They don't let self-doubt stop them from reaching their goals. 5. They don't overthink everything. 6. They don't avoid tough challenges. 7.

They don't stay silent. 12. They don't feel bad about reinventing themselves. 13. They don't downplay their success. There are several chapters that really resonated with me and made me realize that in past relationships and friendships, I was the primary problem. A really good book for those of you who want to better yourselves and be a more confident woman!

Women deal with a lot of things that men don't often realize, and we tend to have stronger senses or go through situations differently or more painfully. The book gives advice and guidance that is simple and practical in each chapter to help get passed those mental barriers. 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don't Do: 1.

    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.

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 sexism using examples from former patients and well-known figures to flesh out the anecdotes. At the end of the day the focus is on how to become mentally strong, which will only benefit everyone at the end of the day.

    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 It's very rare for me to find a self help book I enjoy.

    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 This isn't the book I expected, but I was very much surprised and pleased with it!

    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. 👍🏻👍🏻

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    The format of this book is one that doesn't need to be read chapter by chapter, the reader can shuffle and choose what one to go too. I especially liked that it was celebrities telling how they have it all and still get to have meals with the family and solo vacations. Never mentioning the assistants and nannies who make it possible. It is everyday people, even the author shares her moments of being blindsided by life.

    A great book to help you navigate through life using you own gifts and powers. It also helps you to become an authentic person who has authentic relationships. I love that it is well laid out, with some great tips, in an easy to reference way. You can read this book cover to cover or reference tips along the way. I think this book is fantastic for those woman wanting to instill more confidence into daily interactions and to face challenges with some fierce and helpful techniques.

    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.

    I picked this up as I thought "what woman doesn't need improvement and to believe in her mental Strength?" Tried to parse it out to a daily chapeter-a-day thing, but ended up reading non-stop. Plenty of highlighted sections to work on! Passing on the sisterly strength love by giving this book to a friend. Fully intend to tell her to pass it on!

    This book is solid with research references that open engaging discussions on unique challenges women face and ways to overcome them. This would be an excellent choice for a women's book club.
