Description

She recounts excitedly landing her first Saturday job at the age of 14, working on a market stall “selling plastic jewellery and other tat”. From the outset, her boss – a vague acquaintance of a neighbour – gave her “the creeps”. Prowse remembers being too “naive, young and immature” to voice concerns.

Amanda's voice is warm and so relatable, you cannot fail to feel both inspired and in awe as you gain access into her remarkable life. The Women Like Us Foundation is a cause-based global nonprofit organization changing the world by empowering women and girls through education and economic development. As Amanda traces her roots, right down to the the important and the impactful, (and Mandy really has seen it all - from horrific medical trauma, to achingly-tragic missed births, cancer, sexual assault, battles with alcohol, misogyny, grief, and familial mental illness) - she opens the coffers wide - her story made clearer, both to the reader, and in aid of her own deeper awakening.

Without wanting to give too much away, because I would urge anyone reading this to read the book themselves, Amanda's life has had huge amounts of love poured into it by her wonderful family and husband. Amanda’s story is beautifully written, inspiring on so many levels and highly relatable. I felt that what I was reading was so brave, bittersweet and honest. It is a book that every woman should read. It encourages you to always be yourself, to know that you are worthy of love and happiness and great things! A wonderful heart-tugging read, this book and it’s touching and ultimately deeply-inspiring message, will change you, as it did this reader - taking us perhaps one step closer to a world where each of us can look ourselves in the eyes with the same warm and unconditional love we often have no trouble sharing with others. I love Amanda Prowse! Whenever I watch her on TV, she is beautiful, intelligent and I spend most of my time nodding along to what she is saying, thinking “This woman really knows people, she understands us.” Reading the first part of her book Women Like Us: A Memoir, even before Chapter One, I was relating to it all – yes, that’s me, I do that too, I’m that one at parties, she sees me, she knows me!

I have to say this is one of the most honest memoirs I have read. If you have ever had thoughts where you think you are not quite good enough I would definitely recommend you give this a read. Mandy has written an honest memoir from the heart. We read through her trials and tribulations, where thankfully she has come out of the other side. a woman I am now irrevocably in awe of. This book just resonates everything about her. From her power, her humour, her passion, her love, her angst, her pain and her concerns as she talks us through the memoir of her life. Her unflinching honesty, tenacity and verve make Prowse a hugely relatable and likeable narrator. She deftly taps into a universal theme of what it means to be a woman in a world where beauty, slimness, popularity and youth all remain desirable currency. I absolutely love Amanda Prowse and was over the moon to receive her memoir and what an amazing woman and inspiration she is.This isn’t a self help book it is a book about Amanda’s life. She comes across so likeable and down to earth. An accessible introduction to yoga, taught in a staged approach to be inclusive to all. Yoga practice is more than just the postures; we will also focus on breathing and relaxation, and their benefits to the body, mind and soul. I've read a lot of so say autobiographies and this is the best I've ever seen, The reason for this is that you can tell that the author actually wrote it themselves and it wasn't produced by a third party ghost writer. They're not trying to portray themselves as all sweetness so it avoids that saccharine feeling, it is just open, honest and really engaging. Linda is an award-winning writer, speaker, and business woman. She is the author of the book series, Women Like Us: Real Stories and Strategies for Living Your Best Life; Women Like Us Illuminating the World; and Women Like Us: Together Changing the World . In 2009, Linda created the Women Like Us Foundation. I’m not going to summarize her life or the book, just read it. There are four primary areas that the impact is felt: Mental Health, Self Love, Physical Illness/Medical Conditions, and Having a Plan B.
