Maas' autobiography tells the story firsthand of what it is like to be the first woman to head up an advertising firm which she did not found. Her story is inspiring and interesting but at times is too focused on her successes and not how she attained them with little focus on the difficulties of breaking into a male dominated field. At times the story turns into a gossipy who's who of the ad world with more focus on who she knows than what she knows. Her adoration of David Ogilvy and all his theories tends to overshadow her own point of view. Over all an interesting read if the reader does not require an indepth look at how to rise to the top.

This hard-to-follow, stream-of-consciousness narrative about the advertising world is fluffy. Very little applies to today's working mom--unless you're used to chauffeurs and live-in maids. (Those two things help tremendously, I've read, when it comes to work-life balance.)
