    1. An excellent collection of interviews of women in law and the struggles they went through to get to where they are today. There are parts that are infuriating (what men said to the women) but the overall feeling is inspiring.


    2. Although it is just a series of short, simple, and at times superficial interviews, I LOVED this book. Biographical narratives of successful women are still in short supply and this is exactly what I needed to read, exactly when I needed to read it.


    3. I enjoyed how these women's messages are universal no matter what field you are in. I also obtained a deeper respect for what some lawyers do (or are trying to do.)
