"The book is a great read.  I found it to be very inspirational, even for someone who has been at this business for as long as I have.  I think all women, at any point in their work life journey, will experience a transformational epiphany by reading and engaging in the challenges Charlotte Beers puts forth in I'd Rather Be in Charge."
—Mary Baglivo, CEO New York and Chairman & CEO Americas, Saatchi and Saatchi

"I'd Rather Be in Charge is superb! You've articulated a breakthrough approach to leading from the inside out, from a woman's true self, where the wisdom of her heart informs the intellectual and high performance side of her. It is profound and practical, inspiring and empowering. (It's spiritual too without using the word once.) My copy is dog-eared, underlined, and much loved. I just finished reading it this morning. Thank you for sharing it with me!"
—Carolyn Rivers, Founder, The Sophia Institute, Charleston, SC

"Charlotte Beers goes straight for the jugular with tales from her meteoric career in advertising, a memoire that makes Mad Men look sane. But her true gift is ultimately the ability to teach us all how to be both memorable and persuasive in our own communications. A must read that combines wit and wisdom in equal measure."
—Ted Bell, New York Times Bestselling Author of the new Alex Hawke spy thriller Phantom

"Reading I'd Rather Be in Charge, I found myself reflecting on my own way of teaching and leading. Charlotte candidly shares with us how she found her own unique path to influence in her exceptional journey in Corporate America and gives us precious advice on how to find ours. I will draw on some of her lessons in my Power and Influence class this season."
—Julie Battilana, Associate Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
