Summary:This book discusses gender related orientation and focuses on ways to work with the strengths and weaknesses of both gender types. It also stresses the importance of combining the two forces to create a team that is as strong and powerful as it can possibly be.

I can imagine that the title of this book would have many thinking that it is just another opportunity to harp on about how great women are in comparison to men.  Well all you cynics, think again. 

 

Although this book is admittedly angled towards women, it also discusses gender related orientation and focuses on ways to work with the strengths and weaknesses of both gender types.  It also stresses the importance of combining the two forces to create a team that is as strong and powerful as it can possibly be.

  • Anticipating the Critical Mass
