Not an outsider looking in, with Johnson's skills, credentials and unique access, she escorts her readers to a real connection with these diverse, courageous pioneers, where we hear their voices and feel their spirits. We learn what made them tick and how they kept on ticking through extreme adversities while they, in the name of their passion to serve and improve lives, dared to pick up that baton, run with it, and now through this book, they pass it forward.
My journey as a woman would not be complete without hearing from these leaders.
