Life Snacks for Women is an easy-to-read collection of bite-sized tidbits of information and motivation. Author Sharon Burstein offers friendly reminders to inspire women—and men—of all ages. Glancing at the Table of Contents, the title of each chapter contains one word that is alphabetically arranged, as if those are the steps one should take on their way to excellence: Accept, Accomplish, Achieve, etc. Cool! Besides the 69 chapters arranged from A to W, this book includes other helpful phrases and worksheets. Burstein has coined a new word: younique! Love it! I think I’ll print out the 10 Point Action Plan for Life and tape it to my mirror to remind myself every morning. She encourages women to write down their dreams and goals to make real. Whatever you conceive, you can achieve.

The wonderful gray scale images of the candy bar and candy have high contrast and leap off the page. The illustrations with tones of gray are well drawn with plenty of color—even though it’s a black and white book. Even the photographs are sharp and have good contrast between the highlights and the shadows. The formatting and layout of the book with its Optima typeface, extra leading, and extra space between paragraphs make this a friendly, easy-to-read book. Life Snacks for Women contains helpful reminders like “affection moves in two directions” or “It is not how big a step you take each day toward your goal, but that you continue to move forward to success.” Occasionally, author Sharon Burstein instructs us to make a list - write it down - so Life Snacks for Women is an instructional workbook as well. Looking for a graduation gift? Look no further … Life Snacks for Women should be given to all young women or women who just need a reminder. Enjoy every morsel. Thank you for the reminders and inspiring words.
