Linda’ Book Obsession Reviews “Slay Like A Mother” by Katherine Wintsch, Sourcebooks, 2019 for Suzy Approved Book Tours
Katherine Wintsch, author of “Slay Like A Mother” writes an informative and witty self-help book. From the Blurb, “this empowering self-help book champions the kind of self-doubting that mother Katherine Wintsch CEO of The Mom Complex calls never enough, the kind of mother whose guilt, desperation and fear about not being or doing enough.”
The “Dragon” inside you is called “Self Doubt”, and that can happen from a number of reasons. The author provides the reader with exercises, examples, and information.
The author has sent out questionnaires to a tremendous amount of mothers around the world, to ask about their feelings as a mother. From the feedback, she developed a “recipe” to help mothers” slay the “Self-Doubt”. Katherine Wintsch provides examples of case studies, statistics, and other professional’s studies to support her findings.
This is written well and thoughtfully and easily provides information that makes life seem less overwhelming. It is especially difficult to be a mother and be successful at work. At times it seems the MOM schedule and the WORK schedule conflict, and there are ways that are mentioned that can be helpful.
There are some mental exercises that the author suggest that are written in this book. I would not write in my book, so I would copy or write them down in a notebook or on paper.
From the writing style, I can see the author doing presentations in a live setting. She has a quick wit and an easy style. I would recommend this self-help book.
