—Tom Peters, management consultant and author,Re-imagine! Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age
“This is an important book for any woman who wants to do good—for herself and for her organization.”
—Ann Richards, former Governor of Texas

—Margaret Heffernan, CEO and author, The Naked Truth: A Working Woman’s Manifesto on Business and What Really Matters
"Women leaders will want this book in their briefcases. It's got all the nuts-and-bolts strategies they need to succeed. Actually, men should read this book if they hope to keep up!"

Despite these visible success stories, the path to the executive suite remains torturous for women. The testing can be prolonged, the scrutiny intense. Will she really have the "right stuff" when the going gets rough? Even Carly Fiorina was unprepared for the attention paid to her gender.
Her Place at the Table is a practical guide for any woman dealing with a demanding role. Drawing on extensive interviews with women leaders, the authors isolate five key challenges.
