Overview

This is one of the most unique formats ever created for discussing women's issues. Virtually all women and 98% of men will gain a new perspective and likely adopt a different approach to life. There is nothing pop-cultural or trendy about this. It is written with the same sincerity and clarity of thought as each of the situations portrayed of women grappling with the problems that face women.
Over the course of 15 years in management, the author met with many women who were seeking personal guidance on issues ranging from relationships and infidelity to career strategies and problem bosses. This book takes some of those issues and puts them into a series of vignettes which mix drama, emotion and oftentimes humor as they work their way toward a resolution.
So, what is a woman looking for when confronted with a troubling issue?
First, she wants to share with another human being. She wants to get that conversation that has been churning in her mind out into the realm of human dialogue. There is a need to move to the next level. So often today, a woman simply doesn't have someone to talk to, even her own husband.
There are insights into the way men view women in the workplace and on the domestic front. These, along with the "inside scoop" on managing one's career might be new revelations to many - or at least a new way of looking at them.
The book ends with a set of 21 Rules that might help women lead a better, less troubling life.
The advice given is offered with admiration and respect for women facing a variety of difficult issues which are compounded by our complex, shifting culture and each woman's own intricate wiring.

Meet the Author

Charles Herrick is a Seattle native. He married Kristy while in college and he feels that was the best decision of his life. They have three great kids, Lexie, Mason and Walker, along with llamas, two chickens and a bulldog named Bullard, who is very dull and dependent.
Charles is a writer and relief worker, serving alone in the most challenging settings in the underdeveloped world. He has been to the mud huts of Kenya, the slums of Bombay, and other places rarely mentioned in Condé Nast. In Africa he resolved an epidemic. In India he treated lepers and untouchables for all kinds of health ailment. Later in the high mountains of Southern India, he taught a woman to walk again who had been crippled since the age of 5 and who had not walked in 33 years.
With a Bachelor of Science degree in pre-medical studies and fresh out of the University of Washington, Charles "temporarily" entered the business world. There, with his hand perpetually on the doorknob, he spent the first couple of decades where he was highly successful, eventually becoming the CEO of one of Seattle's largest technology firms.
Of the 5000 people in Seattle who have worked for him at one time or another, approximately 80% love him; 15% could take him or leave him; and 5% will run him over in a crosswalk if they see him. This is an admirable distribution and one we should all strive for - especially if you look both ways before crossing the street.
He is the author of Breath of Kenya, which details the time he spent in a primitive village in the deep interior of East Africa.
