“This is the first smart, concise, yet in-depth overview of the challenges unique to women in our business . . . Women, like any other underserved group, are not a monolith. Their circumstances and experiences are not always the same, and I find the similarities as well as the differences enlightening. I highly recommend this book both for women who wish to see and understand their peers' experiences and for men who need to be made cognizant of the consequences of their actions and inaction.”—Gary Gottlieb
