The New Success Rules for Women is refreshing and welcome. Researching the next level of professional success deserves our attention. The New Success Rules encompass the subtle, such as the reminders to "never apologize," as well as the obvious but more difficult admonitions that "if you don't ante, you can't win." In sharing the insights of successful women, Ms. Abrams constructively confronts the 90s clich of "having it all," suggesting instead comfort with an evolving process of making choices, developing support and blending one's professional and personal passions with integrity, persistence, stamina and optimism. It is time for this book and its focus on initiatives and realistic responses to guide a woman's journey through her career and active lifestyle. -- Corinne Ball, senior partner, Weil Gotschal & Manges LLP
