“Carly is a courageous and thoughtful leader with a track record of delivering the kind of transformational change—within bureaucracies and within industries—that our politics and policy makers need. Her unique background makes her a compelling voice within the conservative movement.”
—NEWT GINGRICH, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives
“One of Carly’s greatest strengths is that she has never served in elected office. Her frame of reference was shaped by the real world, not politics.”
—TOM COBURN, former U.S. senator (R-Oklahoma)
“[Carly’s] commonsense approach and sharp business skills make her exactly the kind of leader we need.”
—SENATOR JAMES M. INHOFE (R-Oklahoma)
“Carly embraces and advances the rights of women and unborn children, following in the footsteps of the earliest women in politics. Susan B. Anthony and the early feminists understood, as Carly Fiorina does, that undermining the rights of one never advances the rights of another.”
—MARJORIE DANNENFELSER, president, Susan B. Anthony List

Great book! Highly recommend it.
Unlike the above poster, I am into politics moderately. I like her vigor and what she has displayed in business needs to be duplicated in politics.
Highly recommend males read this.
I am becoming persuaded by her because I find her incredibly compelling. She is a conscience Conservative who is good on social issues, on the importance of small and medium businesses to the American Economy, the rot big government bureaucracies impose on people, places, and futures, and she has a broader experience in dealing with the Federal Government as an advisor and consultant than you might expect.
Her goals for the country are to “unlock the potential of every American. Revitalize Main Street and the middle class. Rebuild and retrain America. Reform Government. (And) Restore American Leadership. “ (page 171). Yes, this is a general vision and could be stated by any number of folks. I find her compelling because she knows how to tell the story from her mind and heart. Her Conservatism sounds like her native language not like she is speaking a foreign tongue as some of our more “moderate” candidates do when they use Conservative phrases they have focused group to death.
She begins the book with the heart wrenching story of the loss of her (step) daughter, Lori, to drugs. She notes how the tragedy of a life so promising was derailed by addiction and a far too early death. Fiorina says she thinks of Lori and sees “an ocean of untapped potential”. And it breaks her heart when she sees that same loss of human potential in so many places throughout our society. She sees the Vision of America is that we each have the right (and duty) to fulfill our potential.Read more ›

Just a campaign speech - I needed more depth. I think it's probably there but in trying to reach the masses you lost the depth of the message.Published 3 months ago by Cheryl McGirr

I liked her analysis. A bit preach-y at times but neither inaccurate nor unfair. Her international business experience especially comes through as a definite strength.Published 4 months ago by C. Zlock
