An instructional book designed to develop and assist both current and aspiring female leaders in attaining/maintaining high-profile leadership roles, Wander Woman challenges those potential allowances in an effort to help women achieve managerial status on the basis of ability, professionalism and knowledge. --Keith Carman, Metro Canada
From page one, I was shouting Yes! Yes! That's me! And it felt quite nice, because I've always simply thought myself to be weird. By defining the wander woman, Reynolds lets me know I'm not alone in my idiosyncratic madness; I feel most lost girls will have a similar response, and this is reason enough to read the book. --Blair H, LostGirlsWorld.com
Whether or not you fit the wander woman persona, the book has plenty to offer anyone navigating through the mythic journey of everyday life. --Nikki Gardner, VenusZine

"Wander Woman: How High Achieving Women Find Contentment and Direction" (Berrett-Koehler Publishers 2010) offers emotional antioxidants and avenues of deep introspection that trade the questions for answers.
Marcia Reynolds is a Master Certified Coach and PsyD, organizational psychologist, an international pioneer in executive coaching, a coach's Coach. She is a revolutionary thought leader who blends ancient wisdom, evidence based neuroscience, and persuasive coaching techniques in a targeted guide for high achieving women. She is a Huffington Post blogger and a serious devotee of social media. Her Facebook and Twitter engagement and her personal blogs are blessings in the social space.

As Reynolds points out, women "often intentionally take themselves out of the running for leadership positions as they wander around searching for the elusive `something more' they need to do in this lifetime." This is also one of the key insights in a book co-authored by Dave and Wendy Ulrich, The Why of Work.

I, highly, recommend this book to anyone who wants a great understanding of high-achieving women.
