This book is a compilation of letters written to the “success seeker” by many prominent, powerful and thriving women. The letters are short and simple and are less “a map of how I got to where I am” and more full-of-clichés like: “believe in yourself” “stick to it” and “have faith.” It’s not that the clichés are bad advice but they are cliché, so if you’re looking for some profound insight, keep looking.
There is also an overarching theme of Christianity (not from every contributor but from way more than a few) and that can be a bit grating if you don’t happen to be a Christian because it’s not obvious from the title or synopsis but the book does have a heavy slant of Christianity.
It’s not the type of book you read cover to cover but more like a nightstand stack book or one you pick up and read for a minute or two if you need some motivation or encouragement. I prefer the books of SARK for a quick pick me up, but this book is charming in its own way. If nothing else, it’s nice just to see the names of so many contemporary successful women.
