Power Mood: Unlock Your Confidence, Transform Your Life & Command Your Value

Rock Point. Apr. 2023. 208p. ISBN 9781631069352. $22.99. SELF-HELP
Emboldened by a lack of career resources written by women, author DeMase resolved to correct the imbalance with this title. The three parts of this book lead readers from initial job-search skills to learning to work with others, finishing with inner self-improvement. Each chapter has specific achievable advice or steps to accomplish a goal, such as interview preparation, salary negotiation, résumé creation, and building self-confidence. A song is also recommended at the beginning of each chapter that adds to the overall empowerment of the book.
VERDICT This book stands out next to traditionally male-dominated leadership self-help book titles, comparable to how Clever Girl Finance by Bola Sokunbi and Her First $100K by Tori Dunlap stand out in the finance book field. DeMase is the career mentor that many corporate women have needed but never had. Most public library collections and academic libraries with a career section will find this an indispensable resource.
