Format: Hardcover
Women have needed a replacement for the glass ceiling metaphor for quite some time. Drs. Eagly and Carli have given us a wonderful new metaphor, the labyrinth, that better describes the obstacles and realities women face. For years we all have been bombarded with the impediments for women, but no one has offered practical solutions. This book eloquently defines the problem and offers hope for us all. This year all of my close friends, including some men, will receive this book from me for Christmas.

Format: Hardcover
Alice Eagly is a phenomenal writer and researcher. She has been working for decades on gender and leadership. Her newest theory, with Carli, is outstanding! She presents a new paradigm for thinking about women in the workforce and gives a preview of what is to be expected in the workforce in the upcoming years. If you have not already read this book, then what are you waiting for? The only thing that is better is having her present the work, which is sure draws a crowd! Also, for the non-academic it is an easy read with much detail on prevailing theory for the general public to understand.

Format: Hardcover
This is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in multidisciplinary, empirical perspectives regarding women and leadership. The text is easy to read, well-researched (drawing often from the author`s own studies and publications), and all-around interesting! I will not only use this as a resource for informing my own line of research, but also as a personal guide.

It is about time we reconsidered the overly simplistic metaphor often used in this discussion (e.g., a "pipeline" or a "glass cieling") and replaced it with "labrynth" instead- it`s certainly a more accurate term to describe the evidence from both research and practical perspectives.

(I purchased this through Amazon.de, so this is a repost of my verified purchase review there).

Format: Hardcover
Thoroughly researched, well organized book on women and leadership. Clearly the best one yet written. Useful both to those researching the topic and women leaders looking for a guidebook on how to manuever through what is still very much a male-oriented domain. Translates empirical findings into practical tools to use in the workplace starting immediately. Even for those familar with research in this area, the contents of this book will surprise and inform. Highly recommended.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Laurance S. Morrison on May 1, 2008
Format: Hardcover
I think that the authors have set a new baseline for discussion and insight in the quest for women's workplace equality, and beyond. The scientific foundation for their analysis finally moves the subject past anecdotal and self-reinforcing generalizations. The book provides a better term--labyrinth--for the unfair journey many (ambitious)women face. And the professors pulled off a neat stylistic trick: Scholarship and easy-to-read.--Larry Morrison

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Ann E. Prentice on January 27, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A well written comprehensive review of research relating to women and leadership. Organized according to questions about leadership e.g. "Do Women Lead Differently from Men?" each chapter reviews the research, discusses trends, and suggests how women might respond. Unlike many titles on this topic, this is an evenhanded review of the research whose objective is to provide information to women as they navigate the turns and barriers of the labyrinth as they move forward in their careers.

It is too bad these very knowledgeable authors picked this title for their book. They should be wise enough to know the difference between a maze and a labyrinth. The cover art is a maze, not a labyrinth and I believe the maze is what they meant in the metaphor they are using to replace the "glass ceiling." The labyrinth is not a puzzle and it has no dead ends.
