Wisdom of Wildly Creative Women: Real Stories from Inspirational, Artistic, and Empowered Women

Mango. Mar. 2023. 256p. ISBN 9781684811526. $24.99. SELF-HELP
LoMenzo, creative director at a video/music production company and a meditation instructor, collects biographical sketches of 25 women known for their various innovative endeavors. The spectrum of their careers spans the well-known creative fields of art, writing, design, music, acting, photography, hairdressing, and makeup artistry, to fields not traditionally thought of as artistic or creative, such as technology, podcasting, and yoga. In short, impactful chapters, these women discuss how their various experiences of accidents, illness, addiction, abuse, and neglect fueled their ambition and success. They overcame and learned from these experiences through a mixture of therapies and treatments, along with massive support from their current friends and family. While the subject matter can sometimes be intense, the overall atmosphere of the book is loving, supportive, and positive.
VERDICT LoMenzo’s book is not a step-by-step self-help manual but rather a soothing inspirational guide that readers can binge-read in one or two sittings or savor slowly.
