“I went from black and white in my thinking to seeing everything in many layers of gray.”
Uncommon Courage: An Invitation by Andrea T. Edwards is far more than a self-help book; it expands on several topics ranging from parenting to career shifts and even the global climate crisis. Andrea T. Edwards has spent almost half of her life traveling around the world, gaining insights from different cultures and countries on the meaning of life and how one can use their passion to turn things around for themselves and reach deeper levels of understanding and fulfillment in life. Her ability to add humor and push buttons —where required — will encourage readers to contemplate and evaluate some of the hard truths of life that they have been running from.
The 108 Pearls of Wisdom Andrea has shared in this book are interconnected and are quite telling of her views on life. The book is thematically organized, which makes it easier for readers to determine what to read first. By the end of the book, readers will have a strong understanding of self-awareness, leadership, influence, and empowerment.
Andrea takes readers on an entirely new journey of learning through her personal experiences while keeping a perfectly balanced pace. The book will remind readers of a bonfire party where the wise would share their stories and wisdom with those who cared. From leaders to students and learners, this book will come along as a gem, one filled with manifold lessons and insights into life. Above all, it gives readers the tools they need to take the lead in their lives. Written in gorgeous prose and in a voice that is both compassionate and captivating, Uncommon Courage invites readers into frank and meaningful conversions with themselves, their culture, and those around them.
