In this insightful and often provocative look at women in business, Marion Luna Brem unabashedly embraces many of the stereotypes used to describe women and, in doing so, redefines the meaning of success. Brem has identified what she calls the seven truths about women, characteristics of which she feels women can claim particular if not exclusive ownership. She advocates that women can use five attributes-resiliency, nurturing, intuition, creativity, and passion-to build profitable and satisfying professional and personal lives. Brem encourages readers, through her own example and the stories of many other women that illuminate this book, to discover and exploit their own distinctive strengths. At the same time, she accepts that women must address two other important issues-self-value and sensitivity-that may become obstacles in their quest for professional achievement. Finally, Brem brings these "truths" to bear as she offers a fresh perspective on leadership and balance as they pertain to women who are trying to achieve success on their own terms.
