I found my bravery at last!

I loved this book and it has changed me as a person for the better. It has taught me to speak my mind instead of bottling things up inside like I did for years (which is unhealthy). I was stuck in the 1950's mentality that women shouldn't voice their opinions. I have found that since I began speaking my thoughts honestly, it has made my marriage, career and everything else in life all the better. I highly recommend this book for others that struggle with expressing themselves. I have a whole newfound confidence....thanks to the writer!

Emotional Make-Over

Like Sara Ban Breathnach's 'Simple Abundance', this book changed my life. Providing direction in these uncertain times, Drs. Valentis plot the course for a reassessment of self that can lead to a beneficial "emotional make-over". I highly recommend it to any woman looking to grow stronger and more self-assured.


As one who counsels individuals in the workplace, my favourite motto is, "follow your dreams and have the courage, strength and commitment to make them a reality." That message is also portrayed in similar words throughout this book. "Brave New You" is an inspiration particularly to women and those pursuing a career outside the home. Generally speaking, we are limited only by our own self-imposed restrictions and fears of uncertainty. Anything in life worth having usually involves a risk, and as long as we have a plan in mind and miminize those risks as best we can - go for it! There are some excellent tips here on how to overcome emotional barriers, fears and doubts. The one constant in our lives is change; it can be one's worst enemy or one's greatest salvation. After reading this book, readers will think long and hard before allowing themselves to continually live up to another's expectations; rather, they will place more emphasis on living up to their OWN expectations. The author has written an extremely poignant and motivational book which offers some great strategies. "Brave New You" sends a message to readers that it is okay to be you because each one of us is unique and special in our own way.

Finally, I get it.

Brave New You has completely changed my views of myself and my relationships, be they romantic, professional or familial. I used to do whatever people told me and look down on myself for being such a pushover. Now, not only can I understand why I've behaved the way I did for so long, I have begun to use my new knowledge to make braver choices and finally take care of myself. I gave a copy to my mother and two of my best friends. Now we can talk about the things we've learned and work together to make the most of life every day, for ourselves and each other. I definitely suggest this book for anyone who feels they could be getting more out of life.
