Book Review: Super Women

My Rating:

Super Women by Prachi Garg is a book encompassing entrepreneurial journeys of 20 women. These are the tales of self-realization, extraordinary courage and out of the box, unconventional ideas. In what is generally regarded as a male dominated space, these women who have taken up the challenge of smashing stereotypes and make a name for themselves are inspiring.

Each story brings out various aspects of the journey- the ideas, the hopes, the fears, the challenges. Not only their entrepreneurial journeys are talked about, the author also attempted to bring out their personalities.The narrative flows smoothly. The language is simple yet impactful. The author has made sure that there is a diverse mix of professions from handicraft portal to lingerie portal. This helped in making the book a more interesting read.  You can't help but feel motivated. 

There is one story I will like to mention particularly- Make Love Not Scars. This touched me deeply. The way author brings out the internal contradictions in the mind of the entrepreneur is commendable. Our flawed notions about the beauty are superficial. The way we have internalized it all speaks volumes about what is wrong with the society.

In a nutshell, it is definitely worth a read not only for aspiring entrepreneurs but also for women of all ages and professions.

PS: I received a paperback copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
