Wonder by R.J. Palacio

This product was recommended by Willie Greer from The Product Analyst

This is an all wonderful book, as it may be a children’s novel, it discusses how a child, different as he is, can be the brightest star when he chose to be. As no amount of difference can ever make up to the golden heart of a person. Appearance could never define who truly a person is. The gift of kindness and warmth is what the book is all about.

The Ethical Slut by Janet W. Hardy

This product was recommended by Kate W from Pleasure Better

As someone who grew up in a religious and sexually conservative culture I had a lot of guilt and shame around sex and my desires. I even had trouble enjoying sex with a committed long-term partner because I had been taught that sex should only be enjoyed with one person and you should be married to that person (and even then women don’t really enjoy sex – or so I was told). This book helps empower you to enjoy sex and relationship styles that are outside the accepted cultural norms. These relationship styles actually best suit many people, though it can be difficult to accept your own desires until you realize many others want the same things. The Ethical Slut discusses open relationships, polyamory, battling sex negativity, discussing boundaries, keeping sex safe, and much more. It empowers you to realize and accept that your own desires are normal and healthy – and it helps you ethically embrace the enjoyment of sex and relationships in their many varied styles!

Be Mighty by Jill A. Stoddard PhD

This product was recommended by Jill A. Stoddard from JillAStoddard

In a culture where women are paid less for doing the same jobs, expected to juggle multiple demands flawlessly, and objectified at every turn, it’s no wonder we experience anxiety at nearly double the rates of men. But anxiety need not be a prison. Based on the principles of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Be Mighty takes readers on an entertaining and empowering journey toward a deeper understanding of the patterns that are keeping them stuck. Offering evidence-based strategies for embracing discomfort and letting go of the Inner Critic, Be Mighty aims to inspire women to become their fiercest, most authentic, and mighty selves.

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

This product was recommended by Peter Laskay from Petworshiper

It is increasingly common in the modern world that people do not understand each other. This book perfectly explains that in addition to the languages spoken in different countries, there are other kinds of languages, namely love languages. It takes you through the five different types in turn and explains why and how to learn them. I think an important part of self-empowering is learning to recognize the love languages and being able to communicate with other people through them. This ability can have a positive effect on all areas of life.
