Uncommon Courage: An Invitation is a self-improvement book written by Andrea T Edwards. This book is intended to help the readers improve their lives, how they associate with each other, and how they interact with Mother Earth. It is an invitation to make everything in our life and environment better, despite the challenges we now face as humankind, some created by us and others beyond our control. The author presents a hundred and eight wisdoms drawn from her experiences. These eye-opening, timeless wisdoms tackle seven themes: self-awareness, self-empowerment, empower others, external influence, social leadership, career thoughts, and climate courage. Each strategy (wisdom) is placed in its chapter, and below each chapter, a theme it touches on is indicated. I greatly enjoyed my journey through this enlightening read.

There were several things I liked about this book. First, I couldn't help but notice its splendid formatting. The first impression it gave was of the amount of work and resources the author invested in this project. The book's pages are great and appealing to read through. The chapters are also short, engrossing, and scannable. They enhanced my reading experience. The author's passion for each topic presented was also apparent, making this book more interesting to me. I liked the fact that the author backed it with examples from personal experiences and well-cited sources. The topics were informative, enlightening, and entertaining. Most resonated with me directly. While some were great reminders, others were totally new concepts, and I learned a lot from them. This book passes for self-improvement and educative read. The topics are vast. I could see myself through these pages.

Apart from those, I loved the attention the author gave to the issue of climate change. I found the topics discussed eye-opening and the various strategies she proposed for combating climate change informative. This was the feeling I had when reading them: everyone should read this.

What I liked the most about this book was that the concepts were not only informative but also practical. At the end of each chapter, the author provided reflection and call-to-action questions. They are thoughtful, insightful, and well laid out. They further reinforced the previously presented concepts and made me draw more from this book. This, in turn, added to my overall enjoyment of this work.

Overall, I absolutely disliked nothing in this book. It was perfectly edited, as I didn't find any errors. Therefore, I am glad to give it an excellent rating of five out of five stars. This book has great wisdom, and I'll be rereading it from time to time to refresh on the strategies.

I highly recommend this book to readers who want to improve their lives. Unlike many self-improvement books, this all-encompassing read touches on topics that will improve your life and help us conserve our home, Earth. On the other hand, I don't think of anyone who may find this least suitable.

There's certainly a lot to be learnt from this book. The fact that there was nothing you disliked makes me want to pick this immediately.
