Overview

After thirty years of feminism, women continue to underachieve, occupying only 10 percent of top-level managerial or professional positions. And significant achievement-influential woman leaders and visionaries-is rarer still. The reason, argues this bold and inspiring book, lies in the self-imposed psychological glass ceiling, which influences every decision women make in their lives. What's Holding You Back? charts women's unique pathways to achievement and examines eight life-defining choices that determine their ultimate level of accomplishment.

Packed with interesting, relevent information and practical advice for the achievment minded woman. Great information delineating problems, but also offering practical solutions. For example how to deal with difficult people, and why some women have stagnated and how they can get back into the game. Especially startling were the revelations on gender differences of competition. Informative, yet not whiny. I highly recommend this to any woman either getting ready to embark on her career or who is currently trying to navigate her way to the top.
