Publisher's Summary

In this provocative book, Margaret Heffernan, former CEO and Fast Company contributor, fuses her own experience with that of hundreds of women to identify the biggest challenges and the best solutions that women face today. From VPs of Fortune 100 companies to entrepreneurs to women just starting their careers, she traces the patterns and themes underlying women's power, choices, love, sex, money, and other vital topics. Heffernan offers solutions and shares the truth about the working world: women's choices are limited, you can't have it all, women do work differently from men, but yes, it is possible to find success amidst all of this and feel good about it.

Thoughtful and Educational

I think the author presents some excellent, well thought out, and generalized issues that women face. As a male, I do not always agree with her viewpoint, but I thank her for bringing to my attention issues that I have honestly grossly looked over. Even if you are like myself, who at times sees things diametrically opposite from the author, it is wonderful to learn and hear the other side so that commonground can be found and women can find greater fulfillment and happiness in their lives. It was, in short, enlightening.

current and helpful

Good book, lots of good points. Seems to be quite current in what women are still facing, no outdated horror tales. Useful methods and suggestions are given. Many anecdotes from her own career and other women, and no lame ones. I don't think she puts down men in any bitter way, I think she models working successfully with men and women both. But ... realistic.
