"- "Meyerson's radicals are part of their organization yet apart from it, tolerated more than embraced, committed to the company's success yet at odds with its rules. Walking that line, says Meyerson, is not flashy. But it's where you'll find the real stuff of change." - Fast Company, 9/1/01. - "This is a more realistic and inspiring way to think about leadership - and life - than are images of leadership found in the popular business press." - Future Survey, 1/1/02. - "To resist policies or behaviors they find offensive or disrespectful, her subjects choose savvy tactics, from negotiation and humor to confrontation and collective action." - Wall Street Journal, 12/19/01. - "Through exemplary behavior and appropriate responses, 'tempered radicals' effect change in the most difficult work environments." - Washington Business Journal, 5/31/02. "A Modest Manifesto for Shattering the Glass Ceiling," with Joyce K. Fletcher. (Jan/Feb 2000)

I found this a very helpful book for self reflection and inspiration to get back to my activist values. The esperiences of a diverse group of changemakers helped me to look at where I'd been and what kind of person I want to be in my workplace. It helped me look at some of the difficulties I've had actualizing my dreams as I've risen through the ranks in a mainstream government position. It gave me hope to continue.
