President of Leadership Quest
As for the message, reddit.com users have a synopsis called TLDR for long posts. The TLDR for Secrets of a Strong Mind is "work hard and don't give up". Hardly a new message, albeit presented in a unique way.
With dramatic stories and practical tips, LaRae Quy takes us along on her journey. She sets an audacious goal for herself, FBI counterintelligence agent, and realizes that she can only reach it through persistent self improvement. This is a story not just of willpower and determination, but also one of heart and introspection.
Buy this book for the compelling stories of this women's adventurous life.
What I liked: In my experience, most “self-improvement” books from women authors do not resonate with me. It could be because many include sections on parenthood (not applicable to me), but generally speaking, there is often an over-emphasis on approaching everything “as a woman” that seems unnecessary.
I didn’t find that Quy focused on building a strong mind “as a woman.” Her advice comes from an individual, speaking to other individuals with their own set of unique strengths, weaknesses, experiences, desires, and goals. This book is for anyone, regardless of gender.
To get the most out of Quy’s exercises, this is the process I found to be useful: I would read a chapter and then review all of the Tactics and questions provided at the end. Then, I would put the book down until the next day. I would take the time to consider the questions asked and really think about them. Only then would I come back and work through the exercises and write them down. (I firmly believe writing down my answers in a notebook strengthened the self-review process, and I encourage you to do the same. Don’t censor yourself. It’s worth it.)
Some Tactics (exercises) required extra time to get to an honest answer. Chapter three’s Tactics, for example, took me several days to complete. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to come up with ideas to finish the section.Read more ›
