10 Books Every Woman Should Read For Embracing Their Greatness

There are so many things that are attacking us daily, both internally and externally. Many women especially are feeling the pressure as they balance both their personal and professional goals while caring for those around them, all the while dealing with their own challenges.

With that in mind Conversations Book Club founder and media personality Cyrus Webb shares 10 books that he believes can help women around the world to embrace their greatness, no matter what they are dealing with.

"I was raised around strong women," Webb says, "and I saw how they seemed to care for others many times before them looked after themselves. That made me want to encourage everyone, but especially women< to not to forget their own value and worth and go after their goals and dreams."

Compiled from books he has read over the past 12 months this list includes direct access to Amazon.com where each title can be purchased. It is our hope that you will find something for yourself and share with others as well.
