“Jill Ker Conway is a woman of extraordinary character, ability and ambition. One might hope to learn from her memoir how such talent emerges, and how it finds its best employment.” –The New York Times
“A lively book [by] a woman of strong convictions and forceful personality.” –The Boston Globe

Taking high level professional positions necessarily leads to compromises in one's personal life. Dr. Kerr Conway describes her adjustments to dealing with the complexities of a university from a distance and shows how she adjusted her life to these pressures both personally and professionally. She articulates an educated, feminist perspective that is truly honorable and helped her to succeed in a variety of endeavors. She also shows how she made life metamorphoses throughout her continuing development. One is left with a wish to know her better as a person and a professional. On the other hand, this is not a great book about learning to be an academic administrator, it is a better book on learning to be a person.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
