Book Review: Leading Women: 20 Influential Women Share Their Secrets to Leadership


Leading Women: 20 Influential Women Share Their Secrets to Leadership, Business, and Life


As a young woman currently going into the business world. I am majoring in business currently this book seemed right up my alley. I need all the help I can get! This is a non-fiction, borderline self help book. 
When I first picked up this book I thought it was going to be a "empowering women, emasculating men" book, but it wasn't. It features really great messages about success stories from nationally acclaimed women, with out being male bashing. 
This book will make you aware that discrimination exist still even though it is 2016, come on people we are all human, women have the power to do anything. 
Leading Women, is a collection of pulled together leadership tips that will open a conversation about the workplace and women's places in it. It will inspire you to be a better, more positive person. It encourages you to take risks, and if you fail, learn how to accept the consequences. No one pushed you to try so no one is at fault but you if you fail. 
I have to admit that this book completely excited my expectations. I really thought this book would underwhelm and be completely boring honest. I really found that the discussions in this book, will change my life in so many ways. 
I encourage every woman to check out this book, regardless of your place in the workplace or not. It is a book that will inspire everyone. 
Disclaimer I received this book in exchange for an honest and completely unbiased review. All thoughts, opinions, and such are my own.
