"Remarkable and essential! In Tough Cookies, Kathy Cloninger draws on a rich blend of personal experience, wide-ranging research, and on-target insight to show how to tap America's most valuable potential resource: the leadershippotential of girls. I can't think of a better resource for the Year (or the Decade) of the Girl."

Frances Hesselbein, President and CEO, Leader to Leader Institute; former CEO, Girl Scouts of the USA

"Tough Cookies shows what vision, courage, and an unflinching dedication to mission can accomplish. Kathy Cloninger makes it clear that the Girl Scouts—and girls—rank high among our nation's treasures."
Johnnetta Betsch Cole, PhD, President Emerita, Spelman College and Bennett College for Women

"Kathy Cloninger has captured the excitement and boundless promise of the transformation of Girl Scouting. If you want to know how to make a great (and irreplaceably valuable) organization greater, this is the book for you."
