The gee-whiz tone in Elisa Donovan’s appealing voice, both youthful and credibly assertive, is a fitting way to perform this thoughtful reminder of how much gender bias still operates at the top levels of most U.S. institutions. She sounds fresh and easy to hear but also intelligently connected to every theme and nuance in this important book. The author, the COO of Facebook, uses cultural references and compelling personal stories to show how most women don’t try harder to enter positions of power. Noting the entrenched obstacles to leadership positions at work and the antiquated division of labor in traditional marriages, her call to action includes healthy activism against barriers in both settings along with an examination of why women make excuses instead of nurturing their ambitions and demanding more from others.
