I found this book to be an excellent guide for women wishing to play bigger in their lives. Mohr dives right into the obstacles that stop women from speaking up and taking risks, and offers easy solutions to overcome them. Pair this with "Lean In" by Sheryl Sandberg and "Thrive" by Arianna Huffington to make the ultimate support group in book format.
