Why read it?

1 author picked Hardball for Women as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

For example, despite old stereotypes, being assertive and showing confidence are every bit as acceptable traits in female as in male leaders. Just as with some of my other book recommendations, the authors use real-life examples to make their points which I think is very effective.
