Review

"A stimulating, revelatory appreciation of women who exemplify determination, courage, and power on the most basic and uplifting, levels." -- ForeWord Magazine<br /><br />"Good basic resource for women seeking the next step in their spiritual journey. It has universal appeal. . . ." -- Dr. Johnnetta B. Cole, President, Bennett College for Women<br /><br />"The great seers have told us that courage is the first virtue . . . Read and discover your own courage!" --Frances Moore Lappe, author of Diet for a Small Planet

From the Publisher

In the 1970's, Betty Friedan identified the inner challenges faced by a whole generation of American women in her remarkable book, The Feminine Mystique. Women saw themselves in her words, and they were empowered and changed. Thirty years later, it's time to take another close look at ourselves as women. Yes, there are more women elected to positions of political leadership. Yes, we have narrowed the wage gap. Yes, we have purchasing power, decision-making power, and spiritual power. It's time we acknowledge it. It's time we acknowledge that it is our collective everyday acts of courage that have made those more outward advances possible. Get in touch with your own courage -- past, present, and future -- and the options you have for your own life can be limitless.

I'm a firm believer that as women share their life journeys, heart-to-heart, soul-to-soul, we can transform the planet as we know it. The stories shared within this book will help us do just that. The authors aptly demonstrate through the journeys of 44 amazing women how any one of us can release old, outmoded ways of being and cultivate new, more empowering ones. Just reading this book will give you the courage to live as your truest self, a woman who is naturally confident and courageous, and when that happens, the world will change for the better.

Especially today, we cannot read enough stories of inspiration, hope and courage. And there are 44 real gems in The Courage Code - as well as the interesting reflections of two insightful authors.

As consultants, teachers, trainers and coaches, Megan Raphael and Jennifer Bryon met many women they would describe as courageous, women who are making a difference in the world, who have endured tragedy, physical and psychological illnesses, who have raised families under the most difficult circumstances. Women who did not see themselves as courageous, all evidence to the contrary.

Their stories help define the new Courage Code, detailed with a sense of organization and purpose in this delightful book. You'll meet women who've built businesses, women who've raised children, women who created life-changing programs for their communities and influenced others to make a positive difference in the world. You'll meet women of all ages and cultural backgrounds, women who have known great want and women who have known great wealth.

The common thread woven among them is the simple message that courage also has a feminine face, one we must value and celebrate. The new Courage Code is an intriguing concept, and I commend these brave women for laying out their lives as part of a new cultural road map.

Their stories are a gift. And as you read through these 360 pages, you will no doubt see yourself and your own courage in them.

Courage has usually been reserved for a male connotation in our social discourse. Co-authored by Megan Raphael and Jennifer Byron, The Courage Code challenges traditional and archaic definitions, and encourages women to get in touch with their own courage, and their own practical desires. The Courage Code reveals how women are culturally trained to serve in a submissive role of pleasing others, and the pitfalls that can occur when the desire to please overwhelms personal identity and needs. A challenging self-help book filled with inspirational true anecdotes, The Courage Code is brimming with motivation drawn directly from the lives of ordinary women who stood up for themselves.

This is by far one of the best motivational books dedicated to women that I've ever read (and I am an avid reader of self-help texts). The stories are as inspiring as the women who tell them. I picked up The Courage Code back in April at a women's art event in Traverse City in my home state of Michigan. I've shared it with my courageous female friends (who get the added benefit of my notes in the margin) and it has sparked countless conversations about our own stories of determination in finding our "True North." I can't wait for a second collection of stories...and a third, a fourth...

As one of many contributors to the book, I was delighted to see the finished work and how well the authors treated the subject and my contribution. I will reread it again and again because it has so much to say to women in general. I have also purchased additional copies as gifts for women in my family.
