The authors of the bestselling Womenomics provide an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence–and learning how to achieve it–for women at all stages of their career. – Working women today are better educated and better qualified than ever before. Yet men still dominate the corporate world. Here, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence. Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business, Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to ''lean in.'' Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.
