    Susan demonstrates through original research and personal stories the mental strengths, identity strengths, emotional strengths and relational strengths which are transforming both the world of business and the face of feminine power. The trend in women to assume major leadership positions both in the United States and in other parts of the world are inspiring and real. This is a MUST read for understanding and cultivating ones own power.

    I felt that the themes of the book, while meant to be above women, really applies to all humans. And talking about the issues, and only applying them to women, seemed wrong somehow. The book did however had its moments, and was an easy, yet thought-provoking read.

    At first I didn't think the book applied to me. After hearing further into in, the book delves deeper about the roles that I play as a mother, a student of life, and what I will become as an older woman. It's a fascinating journey. One I'm looking forward to and no longer so scared. Next book ... At first I didn't think the book applied to me.

    A little repetitive, but overall a good reminder of the strengths women bring to all aspects of life.
