Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It is a definite MUST READ for women moving up and women who would like insight into how to develop our next generation of women leaders." - WE magazine

"I commend Selena Rezvani on bringing to the forefront such important information. . . . I highly recommend this book to any young woman entering a career or has aspirations of becoming a leader. I also believe this book should be a 'must read' in all business curriculum, not only for females but males as well." - ReviewtheBook.com

"Recommended. All collections and readership levels." - Choice

"The book is a must-read for women just beginning their careers, as well as for those searching for their next steps." - On Campus With Women

"getAbstract considers this thoroughly researched text a must read, not only for women launching their careers, but also for anyone, male or female, with leadership aspirations."
- getAbstract

"Rezvani does an excellent job of focusing on the lessons learned by the 30 business leaders interviewed that can be passed on to the next generations to affect change. . . . Rezvani provides much practical insight into office politics and how to successfully navigate through it to your personal advantage. . . . just hope when young women are deciding their career options that they can visualize and aspire to being president of a bank. I would advise every one of them to read this book to get a head start on a wonderful career in banking." - ABA Banking Journal
