For months Rebecca Shambaugh, author of It's Not a Glass Ceiling, It's a Sticky Floor, has been repeatedly asked for advice about leading in turbulent times. One of the most important pieces of advice she gives is to be resilient. It should be no surprise, then, that she chose Hillary Clinton as the central person around whom to write a primer of leadership lessons that center on personal greatness and engaging others.

In The Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton, Becky offers guidance on being a continuous learner, leading with purpose and the importance of a personal board of advisors. All the "secrets" are illuminated with examples from Hillary's life and career as well as from others. I particularly liked the chapters on authenticity and listening tours.

At any level in the organization, if work on yourself (especially your ability to embrace change) and/or your engagement skills are important to you, this accessible book will offer a clear guide and useful tools.

Like her or hate her, Hillary Clinton is one of the most fascinating and influential women in America, if not the world, today. Senator Clinton was been on the public stage for decades; first as the wife of then little known Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton, then as America's First Lady. She served admirably in that role popularized by Jackie Kennedy, but Hillary's drive and resilience didn't stop there. She jumped head long in numerous national issues, such as education, child care, and most notably, healthcare, where she took the rarified role of leading the charge on behalf of President Clinton.

So, who is Hillary Rodman Clinton really? How did she become the women we know today, and is there anyway we learn from her what it takes to be a leader in our modern, often cynical age? The answer is yes. Author Rebecca Shambaugh has written an engrossing book about Clinton entitled, "Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton".

Now, I'll be honest with you. Hillary Clinton is not one of my favorite people, at least from a political perspective. But, I've got to admit that I admire her courage of convection, knowledge, and fortitude. All of these traits and more are wonderfully detailed in Ms. Shambaugh's book. Each chapter introduces the reader to a specific topic (such as Chapter 2 "Overcoming and Thriving on Adversity: Be Resilient" or Chapter 7 "Making Your Words Count: Awesome Communication") and then Ms. Shambaugh guides the reader through specific steps (called "Secrets") on how to take the lessons outlined in the chapter and make them work for you.

The 196 page book is ideally written for anyone, regardless of gender or political leanings, who wants to learn how to improve their ability to cope under pressure, whether in the classroom, boardroom, home, or in the public arena! "Leadership Secrets of Hillary Clinton" is a "must read" for anyone interested in leadership at every level.

Format: Hardcover
Ended up being much better than I expected. As a massive Hillary fan, I've read many books about her already so there was not a lot of new information in this book. However it was very well put together, interesting and helpful. It had more of a 'self help' vibe than I was expecting, which was really interesting and definitely a unique idea for a book about Hillary Clinton. Most books with her as the subject are either 'for' or 'against' her or simply rehashing her life story. This book turns that life story into a useful guide. Definitely worth reading. The author mentions early on in the book, the fact that whether you support Hillary Clinton or not is irrelevant when it come to this particular book, but truthfully, when it comes to Hillary Clinton, you either love her or you hate her so realistically I can't see too many people who don't like her buying this book or enjoying it. For anyone who admires her though, definitely a worthwhile read.

I am a great fan of Hillary Clinton and found this book valuable in several ways: 1. it provides insight into who Hillary Clinton is and how she evolved; and 2. it gives the reader concise and practical recommendations for developing Hillary Clinton's leadership qualities that are tantamount to her incredible success and admiration. As well as being interesting and informative, this book on leadership qualities is practical, usable and inspiring for both men and women leaders.

Part of the optional reading list for my husband's college course. He was disappointed that it only described her methods and did not have many actual quotes by her.
