I enjoyed this book and it did give me a lot of good advice with things I struggle with. It is incredibly repetitive. The book is a short book and worth the read.

I grabbed this book off a display at the library because it caught my eye. I thought it might give me the inspiration or clarity to figure out what I'm doing with my life. I know, I know, that's a tall order for one little book. Anyway, the book is almost exclusively about making career changes, and in my opinion, really high-powered, executive-level career changes. The personal accounts from the various women CEOs,Presidents, CFOs, entrepreneurs and such at the end just reinforced this feeling. ...more

This was just the book I needed when I was trying to build up my confidence to go back into the working world after my divorce. It did the trick, and it made me feel less scared about entering a new career or exploring new ones. Women have got to learn to quit worrying about failure, and this book pumps you up to just get out there and "go for it".
