Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This upbeat report discusses 41 African Americans in positions of power, relating inspiring success stories, though giving only sketchy support for the composite psychological profile of the black achiever that the authors present. (Mar.)
Booknews
The thoughts and insights of black baby boomers who have achieved positions of power and influence in the American workplace help illuminate what it takes to be a successful black in white America.
