ASKMICHAELCOHEN.COM: Spring’s Inspirational Femme Books
Ladies love a tearjerker, an “aha!” moment and a reason to relate to strong female writers; they pour over the stories of others and dissect their own lives in comparison. And while the Scarlett O’Haras of the past expressed themselves in love letters, today’s inspirational women take to computers, PDA’s and social networking sites. The result: five motivational books for the modern woman. Whether these must-reads make you laugh, cry or both, you’ll find yourself enthralled and inspired.
