Review "Not until 1997 did a female become chief executive officer of a Fortune 500 corporation. Women's progress since that time has been in fits and starts, exceedingly slow. After examining in detail the educations, career progressions, pronouncements and observations, as well as family lives, of the 19 women who have risen to the top (sitting and former CEOs), this book asks, and attempts to answer, two questions: Why haven't more women reached the CEO suite? How might women in business better position themselves to ascend to the pinnacle?"--BOOK JACKET
