Be prepared for an ultra-feminist perspective in No Excuses: Nine Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power by Gloria Feldt. If you don’t mind her bashing conservative politics, the misogynist misnomers and her acerbic personal opinion, you’ll still find plenty of information on the innovative techniques and strategies that women can use to change the way they think about power.
I was looking for the book to discuss ways women can reset their perspective to become more assertive in the workplace and in their personal lives. This book does explain best strategies for women to break barriers, overcome boundaries and take their rightful place in male dominated society. But be prepared for a feminist history regarding why women are afraid of power and why the author clearly hates conservative (read: Republican) values as America’s “unwanted agenda.”
