Order it now on Amazon: Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger

Rebecca Traister

Order it now on Amazon: Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger

"In the year 2018, it seems as if women’s anger has suddenly erupted into the public conversation. But long before Pantsuit Nation, before the Women’s March, and before the #MeToo movement, women’s anger was not only politically catalytic—but politically problematic. The story of female fury and its cultural significance demonstrates the long history of bitter resentment that has enshrouded women’s slow rise to political power in America, as well as the ways that anger is received when it comes from women as opposed to when it comes from men.

With eloquence and fervor, Rebecca tracks the history of female anger as political fuel—from suffragettes marching on the White House to office workers vacating their buildings after Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Here Traister explores women’s anger at both men and other women; anger between ideological allies and foes; the varied ways anger is perceived based on its owner; as well as the history of caricaturing and delegitimizing female anger; and the way women’s collective fury has become transformative political fuel—as is most certainly occurring today. She deconstructs society’s (and the media’s) condemnation of female emotion (notably, rage) and the impact of their resulting repercussions." -

Order it now on Amazon: You Are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth

You Are a Badass author, Jen Sincero.

New York Times bestseller, You Are a Badass at Making Money, is a refreshingly frank and entertaining step-by-step guide to overcoming the fears and stumbling blocks that have kept financial success out of reach, and to making the kind of money you've never made before.

Drawing on her own experience of transforming herself—over just a few years—from a woman who lives in a converted garage and eats dollar tacos every night, to a woman who travels the world and stays in five-star luxury hotels, Jen knows all too well the layers of BS one can get wrapped up in when it comes to money, as well as what it takes to dig your way out.

You Are a Badass at Making Money goes in-depth on the ways in which our bank accounts are mirrors for our beliefs about money, and teaches us how we can train our brains, kick excuses to the curb and take the giant leaps necessary to transform our lives. Written with the same sass and blunt practicality that made You Are a Badass an indomitable bestseller, You Are a Badass at Making Money combines hilarious personal essays with life-changing, bite-size concepts that anyone can employ to unlock earning potential and get real results.

“A cheerful manifesto on removing obstacles between yourself and the income of your dreams.”
