“I love how it's not a How-To book. Rather it's "Your story is my story. You are not alone. Go forth and change your circumstances and the world. This is a really important book. Everyone from HR to Federal Politics needs to read it.
I don't think I would buy it if it was just women's stories of how they went back to work and how to do it.
