“What a profound masterpiece on a subject previously misunderstood and certainly misrepresented. I have known since the early days of my own career that women are far superior leaders than men. I have studied and lectured on the subject extensively around the world, and this book has captured the essence of the true renaissance of women in a clear and vivid way. It also provides a path forward for women of all backgrounds to understand and permit their own true potential to be fully realized. What a testament to the brilliance of the authors that their research and examples have brought such an important subject to the full light of the world. BRAVO!” -John Buckingham, Marketing professor, Graziadio School of Business and Management, Pepperdine University
“RenWomen: What Modern Renaissance Women Have to Teach Us About Living Rich, Fulfilling Lives is an inspiring book for both women and men, not only in terms of the fascinating stories of these exceptional multi-faceted women but also in the ways the book helps us better understand the necessary partnership between the Feminine and the Masculine. It shows how, in allowing the full potential of women, along with men, we create and thrive as a society, in true collaboration with Life. Reading this book, you will understand how important it is to rewrite His-story and Her-story into Our-Story.” -Emmanuel Itier, Director of the multi-award-winning film Femme: Women Healing the World and the film The Invocation, featuring the Dalai Lama and Deepak Chopra, and narrated by Sharon Stone.
“RenWomen: What Modern Renaissance Women Have to Teach Us About Living Rich, Fulfilling Lives is a must read not only for women but also for anyone who is intrigued and inspired by the idea of the Renaissance personality, by what allows someone to excel across a wide spectrum of talents and abilities. RenWomen is a sequel to Beyond Genius: The 12 Essential Traits of Today’s Renaissance Men, and it carries our curiosity beyond the traditional definition of the Renaissance man to women. While exploring the unique challenges that women have faced and continue to face, it celebrates those who have embraced the process, trials, and romance associated with Renaissance thinking. It highlights those extraordinary female contributors, both historic and modern day, in order to give us a framework from which to think about our own Renaissance abilities and aspirations. It also provides thought-provoking ideas for the next generation of Renaissance women, who are on their own path to contribute to the world at large (business, science, art, technology) while holistically balancing the many aspects of their lives. Read this book and treat yourself to unusually illuminating and perceptive insights into the Renaissance Woman.” -Pat Turnbull, MA, LEED AP, IFMA FELLOW, President & COO, Kayhan International
