Review

"What a delightful treat! Take a break to read a few stories from Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul. It will add more joy and love to your day." Gladys Knight "At last, a Chicken Soup for women! It touched all my emotions - I laughed, I cried, I was inspired. Thank you for touching my female soul." Olivia Newton-John "It is not very often that one reads a book that entertains, uplifts and moves one to tears. Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soup is one of those books. I highly recommend it." Susan Jeffers, PhD., author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway "Whether you're a career woman or a stay-at-home mom, a teenager or a senior citizen, a young woman just starting out or a woman of the world, this delightful book will be a treasured companion for years to come." Jennifer Hawthorne --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book was better than I had imagined it would be. Many of the stories included brought a smile to my face. However, I had to spread my reading of the book out over five months because I found the stories somewhat repetitive. I am not belittling the heartbreak many of the writers seem to share, but after a while it felt a little bit whiny rather than enlightening.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful feel good book that is definitely a two boxer. That's two boxes of Kleenexes that you'll need to get through this one! The very first story sets the tone for the whole book. This story about a mother and daughter and the love that they shared was the most touching and one of the best stories contained within. As with any anthology, with many authors, the writing style differs throughout and you may find yourself captured by one author and wanting to get rid of the next author all within the same chapter. I like how the editors divided the book into sections about love, attitude and self-esteem, overcoming obstacles, marriage, motherhood, special moments, living your dream, aging, finding a higher wisdom, and truths across generations. This is definitely a book that you want to share with your woman friends and female family members. There are certain stories that should be photocopied and read often, to capture the feelings they evoke. Another especially touching story was written by a nursing home nurse about the love of an elderly couple and their struggle to be together their last remaining days. Two days after the author was located to provide permission to be printed, she died, leaving her loving story to be read by the world. This book brings out many emotions that in the end make you feel glad to be a woman and respect the richness of all your life experiences. It sure has made me feel a little less challenged and lot more honored and rewarded that I share commonalities with all of the women in these wonderful stories.

There are so many Inspiring and touching tales that fills our hearts with emotion. One wonders 'why' things happen as they shouldn't or 'How' do miracles change the course of our lives. There are moments in everybody's life where at a point you encounter obstacles, where your self esteem gets low, attitude differences opine or whatever be, awe-inspiring stories of this book glues you to stir your heart to be more wiser. It rekindles the spirits undoubtedly when we read the emotional narrations of others and wonder - We too come across lot of experiences in life. Should we not pen it down? Easy it may seem, needs inspirations like these stories to share alike tales. This book sure is a great 'light up spirits' book for woman, self inspirations you can say. Topics on Love, Attitude & self esteem, Special moments, Dreams, Truth & wisdom n more are widely covered which makes it a special read. I cherish this book and read n re-read at times. Good pick

I read this book in 2 days flat!! I love it. Brought back some memories of times in my life... made me cry mostly. Who doesn't love a good cry? I'm on track to improving my personal development and have since changed my reading material to awe-inspiring stuff. I encourage all women ages 21-100+ to read this book.

I was having a rough couple of weeks,during the Thanksgiving holiday and afterward.Our whole family had come down with the flu,and with two toddlers,it is very consuming to say the least.
My only outlet when I cannot leave my house,is my e-mail list of other stay-at -home moms.It is sometimes the only place we can turn to complain and cry out our daily frustrations.
I guess it was the first time that I had not been myself,and I really didn't care.I was just so tired and miserable.The house was a mess.I was a worse mess.And my husband was about to leave for a week in Japan on business.
Christmas shopping was not what I wanted to do either.December was getting bleaker by the moment.
Then one day a package came in the mail in a brown paper envelope.It was from one of my e-mail moms!She sent a note saying she was concerned about me,and that she hoped this book would help.I was so surprised by this thoughtful gesture,that I immediately sat down at my kitchen table and read the first couple of stories.
For the first time in a long while,I felt the hugs of friends,women I did not know,but shared dreams and passions and just plain living.This was a book for me to get lost in,and to find myself at the same time.
I kept it in my bathroom,and I read at least one story everytime I was in there.Sometimes a mother can only get the chance to read while she is sitting on her ceramic "throne"!

I am so grateful I was given this book of stories.They have gotten me through many a rough day during the month of December.And I feel so much better about myself now,and not nearly so alone.

I thought this book was wonderful. I am a mother as well and sometimes I only have a few minutes to get a break. It is great because I can start and finish something in the short amount of time I have. Also, I always feel something, as well. That usually makes my break complete.

I have grown up with Chicken Soup For The Soul Collections. I can remember buying my first book at a book sale while I was in elementary school. I than moved on to Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul. I recently took a box of books to a book exchange shop and that's where I saw Chicken Soup For The Woman's Soul. I than remembered how much I had loved these heart warming short stories and since I had just turned 20 years old, it was about time I exchange my teenage collection in for the woman's collection. I am 20 years old, married and in college so sometimes I find myself stressed out and emotional so I like to sit down and enjoy a few of these stories. These are great books to own and there is a large variety so that anyone can find one that fits them. My husband and I like to read Chicken Soup For The Couples Soul together and I am looking forward to the day when I can read Chicken Soup For The Mothers Soul.
