Keeping Your Seat at the Table by Nori Jabba is an insightful book written for middle-aged women, reminding them to keep and secure that seat they have labored hard for, no matter the circumstance.

Nori Jabba uses the eight-chaptered book to encourage, urge, and inspire women through her stories, lessons, advice, and encouragement to keep and maintain the place they have provided for themselves. She reminds women of their worth and why it is important that, despite the circumstances they are facing, they keep their seats. Nori peppers this book with ways in which the 'woman's seat can be kept at the table.' There are so many revelations and knowledge-filled pages in this book, and you can only read it to find out.
I loved and appreciated everything about this book. First, I loved that this book was for middle-aged women, as there are not enough books available that talk about the struggles of this class of women. Reading about their struggles was really an eye-opener, and knowing that "ageism is alive and well," especially for women, really made me understand and learn that sexism has no age limit. In this book, Nori Jabba, in urging middle-aged women to keep their seat at the table, acted as a voice for them, which was very insightful. I also loved her stories and her honesty in the book; it felt like she bared herself in this book. In writing to and about middle-aged women, she put her life and herself out there, which spoke volumes; it was evident that she put her all into this book. I very much loved the author’s humor in the book; despite talking about something as serious as keeping your seat at the table, she still made room for readers to have a little chuckle while reading. I appreciated every chapter and heading in this book. Reading the book felt like going through pages of knowledge; from the acronyms to the lists advising her readers on each step to take relating to keeping your seat at the table, it was all brilliant. In every chapter, I learned so many things. I also appreciated the workbook aspect of each chapter; it gave room for self-reflection after each chapter, and the author did a great job with that. It was a wonderful read, a time well spent sharing in the knowledge of Nori Jabba.

However, my least favorite thing about the book is that the lists in the book were too long and wore me out at some point.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. This is because I loved this book so much; I learned so much from it; it was really insightful to read; and it had so much knowledge packed inside. It’s a book worth reading twice. This book was professionally edited.
I would recommend this book to women. Despite the fact that the author wrote this book for middle-aged women, I believe the information in this book should be for all women, including younger women, in order to learn these lessons early for wider knowledge and growth. Men who also support the growth of women should have a go at this book.
