Book
"Most women have a nonstop chorus of criticism in their heads - voices not unlike those of the mean girls lurking in the hallways and locker rooms of junior high schools everywhere. The grownup version of those teenage taunts - "But taking care of myself is selfish" and "The world is against me" - zap motivation, sabotage happiness, and keep women in a stressed, "never enough" mindset. Here, like a best-buddy, street-wise big sister, coach Amy Ahlers helps women talk back. Her witty, wise, and cut-to-the-chase format arms women with the "Take that!" insights they wish they had handy when someone puts them down - even if that someone is the person in the mirror. Ahlers doesn't offer long-winded self-therapy or simplistic happy talk; she serves up straight talk that helps women know, feel, and tell themselves the truths that transform their deepest inner thoughts - and their lives"--
