The Ultimate Book Guide for the Unconventional Woman

the books you won't find in many libraries and the ones you need in yours...

Over the years I've found myself nose deep in books I never imagined I'd be reading - many that have quite literally changed the trajectory of my life. They likely won't make it to the top of any book lists, and sometimes they'll be impossible to find - but they're books worth taking the time to read - and then passing them along to your friends. You know, those kinds of books.

Welcome, and enjoy this book guide created for the unconventional woman.

There is no monopoly on knowledge. Each of us has been blessed with a mind and the ability to read and think critically to make our own judgments on any topic we're presented with. We all have access to the same information.

Stay open-minded. Be willing to change your mind when presented with new information. Arm yourself with knowledge because knowledge eliminates fear and knowledge is power!
