Fine balance of both biography and self-motivation Mar 20, 2008
I enjoyed Pat Williams' HOW TO BE LIKE WALT DISNEY so much, that I jumped to this book HOW TO BE LIKE WOMEN OF INFLUENCE next. I really like his style of presenting the woman, the facts...and then following through with how to take that story and make it a lesson for us all to gain knowledge and insight...so compelling, it's as if it were our own experience. Bravo!!
True womanhood through trials. Jun 9, 2006
I have gleaned much inspiration and insight from this priceless repository of equally priceless experiences and wisdom of all the women described in this book. After surviving a stroke and brain surgery in the midst of having and rearing my 3 still young children while maintaining pursuit of my career goals, this book further reinforces a truth that has fueled my perseverance during these tempestuous years of my youth: "Impossible is Nothing!"

Great Inspiratonal Book Jul 13, 2005
I really enjoyed reading the book and not only were the stories very interesting but also very inspirational. I got a chance to meet the actual writer Michael Mink and I greatly enjoyed his view of the ladies he wrote about and some of the behind the story of writing the book. I encourage everone to read this book
A great read even if you know the stories already Oct 3, 2004
The book spine is cheap and separates some from the pages (without the pages falling out) - the physical quality of the book isn't among the best in the bookstore, but what's inside was surprisingly great--much better than I could have expected from the outside. Even if you know the stories of these women already, it's still great reading!, which amazed me.
