    Good content, but too broad

    Dr. Clark's years in leadership and ministry are obvious in the way she writes and illustrates. She clearly has a passion for the topic and a wealth of life experience to draw upon. Her writing is approachable and welcoming, presenting content in such a way as to not overwhelm the reader. A leader's guide is included in the back with creative ideas for group activity and discussion to enhance the study.

    At times, I wished that the Biblical foundation of the book was more clear. While Biblical illustrations are used in each chapter, I often did not find them compelling. The Biblical text seemed to be used as a subpoint in the author's outline, rather than the main backbone of where each principle was being drawn from. Also, while the book did provide a basis for group discussion among our team, I found it a bit "clunky" to use for a one-session overview. The chapter topics and titles are not terribly clear and consistent - illustrations (like potatoes and a box of chocolates) are used as chapter titles and I found that they made it difficult for me to remember and concisely summarize the content. I also found the focus of the book to be a bit too broad - women in leadership in "the workplace, the church, the community, or at home" have quite a wide spectrum of different leadership challenges and opportunities, and I found the broad focus to make the content more shallow than I desired.

    This is a worthwhile book to read for women in leadership positions. Dr. Clark's content and application is solid, although if used in a group the leader should expect to need to add some depth and specific application for the women in her particular target group.
