Find Your Fire: Stories and Strategies to Inspire the Changemaker Inside You

By

Worth reading 😎

'Find Your Fire' is a book that will motivate you, with stories of women who have gone above and beyond.

Structure

The book is relatively compact for the self-help genre, but it packs a lot of useful information. 


'Find Your Fire' follows a semi-fable structure. It devotes a chapter to the real-life stories of fifteen incredible women who dared to follow their dream. Each of these chapters narrates the context, the challenges these women faced, and how they ended up overcoming them. They also contain an analysis of how the women found their fire and their learnings from their stories. These sections also show us how we can use their experience to find and fulfil our passion.


The book also contains a toolkit & templates that the reader can use to start their journey towards their mission.


What is Great

The diverse set of stories in this book is easily its best point. The women range from activists to entrepreneurs. Another standout feature is the analysis and thought put into each of the stories so that the reader can gain some perspective from the experiences. Every story has unique learnings since the women are from varying backgrounds - ethnically, culturally, economically and socially. The tool kit towards the end also provides a structured path to guide other women (and men) on their journey.


What Could be Better

I think the book would have been better served with some more verbiage. I wouldn't say I like books that take a simple message and pad them out to 200 pages. But, in this case, I think the author could have made the book more useful by expanding on each of the stories. I feel that the impact of the learnings from their lives would have been more substantial if the context had more detail. 


Conclusion

I think 'Find Your Fire' is a wonderful book that will inspire a lot of readers out there, especially women. If you are looking for a way to pursue your passion, this book should be on your reading list.
