After thirty years of feminism, women continue to underachieve, occupying only 10 percent of top-level managerial or professional positions. And significant achievement-influential woman leaders and visionaries-is rarer still. The reason, argues this bold and inspiring book, lies in the self-imposed psychological glass ceiling, which influences every decision women make in their lives. What’s Holding You Back? charts women’s unique pathways to achievement and examines eight life-defining choices that determine their ultimate level of accomplishment. Request Desk/Exam Copy
