Although they followed different paths to leadership, similarities in their experiences, values, and beliefs emerge. They also express a need to give back to those communities that nourished their growth and leadership - of which this book is a manifestation. At a time when significant turnover in college leadership is about to occur - presenting increased opportunities for women and minorities - these leaders hope that the strategies they describe, the insights they impart, the experiences they recount, and, most of all, the passion they have sustained for the betterment of and greater inclusiveness in higher education, will inspire the next generation of women to answer the leadership call.

What is missing is the nitty gritty of the leadership path. Although each leader gives her biography and shares a little bit about her struggles, no one Really delved into how she navigated the political terrain, gender issues, or the times they felt like saying the hell with it but didn't. This book has valuable advice so I recommend it for women aspiring to leadership positions. However, if you are looking for concrete advice about how to make connections to a higher leadership position, or how to handle those problems that seem to bewitch even the best of leaders, then this book falls a little short.
