In “Find Your Strongest Life: What the Happiest and Most Successful Women Do Differently” Marcus Buckingham attempts to teach women how to have content and strong lives. He does this by interviewing a number of women, some are successful and happy, others are not. He then tries to determine what makes the difference.
