Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] call to arms against the forces that would keep women ‘sacrificing our personal truth to go along, be approved of, or just plain be nice.’” Publishers Weekly
“Surprisingly refreshing…A wide-ranging look at the challenges women face in family, faith, careers, and personal fulfillment to explore the rewards of facing up to fears and working steadily toward fearlessness.” Booklist
“[An] engaging and well-crafted guide on succeeding in love, work, and life.” Library Journal
“Veteran TV commentator Huffington has an outstanding grasp of the many ways young women doubt themselves, fear conflict, and shrink from feeling more competent in their roles at home and in the community…Candid and humble…persuasive… Her security with these ideas creates a low-key message that is inviting rather than imposing.” AudioFile
