About Kicking Ass in a Corset
About Andrea Kayne
I could say just that and it would be enough, but then maybe now because not everyone is an Austenite like I and so many others.
The minute this book came up for review, I knew I had to have it. I was so curious as to how the author would take some of Austen's heroines and use them to inspire us in today's day and age, to empower ourselves. I mean, Austen was 1800's, so how and why would we take those characters as inspiration?
Personally, I could see it, but that is because I do love her books and her heroines, but like I said above, not everyone knows or reads her books, so how could they take something to apply in today's world?
The book can be classified as a self help, which in itself is not one of my favorite genres, or the type of reading I drift towards, but again AUSTEN!
I'm glad I read it and went into it with an open mind, because it does teach us some pretty important lessons, if anything, we can take the characteristics that we should all strive for. Integrity, humility, confidence, is something lacking quite a bit nowadays.
Each chapter focuses on a different character, and Kayne taps into the traits and lessons we can learn from each one, and then apply them to leadership positions or life in general.
I think it's very much worth a read, and it was quite fun revisiting each heroine and imagining her in the workplace today.
