If you’ve been hanging out in this space for a while now, you’ll know that I love books. So, no list of gifts for women over 40 would be complete without books on it. That’s me putting my stamp on things. There are a few titles that I consider appropriate on my list of books for women over 40.
I want to state upfront, so there are no surprises, that not all the books are written by women. Both men and women write great books that can benefit women. I’m more interested in the content of the book rather than whether a man or woman wrote the book. As a woman, though, I appreciate great books that women write. And it’s great to celebrate women authors.

Books for Women over 40
The books I recommend are a mix of fiction and non-fiction. Most of the books I have read already, and a couple of them, I’m working my way through them. The entrepreneurial woman will gravitate toward some of the books, while women who work for others with gravitate toward other books. And some of the books, everyone will enjoy. It’s not a matter of simply reading the books, reflecting on them, and applying the lessons are even more important. Some of the fiction books have very profound lessons.
I recently read the novel, Game Changer by Douglas E. Richards. The storyline is compelling, and the book is a page turner. It introduces a concept called Matrix Learning, which is deep learning. It’s about uploading years of knowledge to your brain within hours. Let’s forget about the science fiction aspect for a bit.

What if you considered yourself an excellent problem solver? To be best in class however, you would also need to be knowledgeable about critical thinking, creativity, judgement and decision making, and cognitive flexibility. This is an example of why knowledge in related disciplines are so important. This is a mentoring moment and food for thought.
