Editorial Reviews


Wander Woman is the first book for accomplished women tortured by the endless pursuit of  "outstanding." This book is for the women AND their executive coaches. --Madeleine Blanchard, Founder, Coaching Services, The Ken Blanchard Companies

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

Do you ask yourself, "Can I be happy? Is that enough? Am I born a certain way? Can I change myself? If I choose to let go or not be focused on achievement, who will I be? How can I find a life partner or keep my relationship healthy even when I am always busy?"

"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.

I discovered Reynolds on Huffington Post and followed her social crumbs across new media. Every morsel of content the author shares online is rich and thought provoking. "Wander Woman" is no exception to her rule governing excellence.

In a refreshing departure from coaching content du jour, the author does not channel celebrity spirits. She offers no funky discourse about law of physics applied to law of attraction that Max Planck Society scientists find wildly entertaining. "Wander Woman" is a welcome antidote for women suffering from law of attraction fatigue.

I suffer from acute and chronic professional wanderlust. I am a restless spirit, a fractured soul.

I am reading an average of 5-10 books at any given time. One reason is because I have a thirst for knowledge and personal growth, the other is because most of them can't hold my interest enough to read just that book. Everyone once in awhile a book comes along that I can't put down until I have finished it, Wander Woman was one of those books. I read a lot of self-help/motivational books and there really isn't anything new or different, they all discuss the same basic principles, which is not a necessarily a bad thing. Not this book, it was different and I couldn't believe it actually had stuff I had never read (and I've read it all). Wander Woman struck a chord in me. I felt like the book was written specifically for me. I was genuinely shocked many times while reading it because I couldn't believe there were so many other women out there that experience the same issues I do. Knowing that I'm not alone, that other successful, smart, talented women struggle with the same issues I do has really helped change my perspective of myself. I recommend it to every woman I know.

With regard to the title of Marcia Reynolds' book, it refers to the movement of women with ever-increasing velocity into positions within and beyond the workplace that offer greater freedom and flexibility, more options and fewer restraints, increased authority commensurate with responsibility, and perhaps most important of all, substantially increased control of what they do as well as when, where, and how they do it. Women are now in the majority in terms of enrollment in two- and four-year colleges; also in graduate schools of business, law, and medicine. Now consider these statistics: women control an estimated 80% of all household spending and the percentage is even higher for those ages 55-70. Also, women make 55% of all investment decisions, 55% of all decisions concerning consumer electronics, comprise 60% of all home improvement buyers and make 80% of all home improvement decisions, control more than 60% of new car purchase decisions, and 66% of decisions to purchase computers? With regard to income, during the years 1995-2008, women's inflation-adjusted median income grew 26%, while men's grew only 8%.

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. Men as well as women feel a compelling need to be appreciated, to believe that their work has value and is appreciated, and that there is a greater purpose in their lives. Reynolds notes that unfulfilled women feel "the urge to move, mentally if not physically, [because that] is lodged in their souls.

As a counselor who works with women on work-life balance, I, too, have experienced the stories of women who had to work twice as hard to get the necessary respect for exemplary work, due to gender. I applaud Dr. Reynolds for bringing the old paradigm of "Women should be seen and not heard" to "Revolutionary Women" who contribute significantly to the workplace; women who stand out, regardless of gender and are paid the same for doing so! This book represents a new way of looking at women in the workplace and it will inspire all women to reach for their true potential.

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

Dr. Joyce M. Knudsen, Ph.D., AICI CIM Distinguished EMERIUS
