Synopsis from Amazon:

Like the 17 women showcased here, build your own Global Positioning System (GPS) for success.
My Review:
The different biographies of the seventeen women were interesting at times.  The book as a whole would have been better with just the history of the people and without the motivational parts.  They seemed to be drawn out and preachy.
