MEDIA REVIEWS
Count this man an enthusiastic fan of these daring stories of eighteen inspired women leaders. A most welcome contribution to our profession. -- Roland S. Barth, founding director of Harvard Principals' Center, educational consultant
The authors' purpose was to record reasons why women educators of different ages, racial classifications, and backgrounds of experience achieved success and moved into positions formerly offered only to men. This book accomplishes much more. It provides inspiration to all readers that leadership is purposeful. The message delivered by the stories of these 18 outstanding educators affirms the ability of women to develop into highly effective leaders. It also confirms the belief that dynamic leadership transcends the boundaries of gender, race, culture, nationality, and creed. * Teachers College Record *
Based upon interviews with 18 outstanding female educators, this volume intertwines personal narrative with scholarship on leadership. The focus is on how women make decisions, how they get things done in bureaucracies, how they define and use power, and how they live their values. * Reference and Research Book News *
For years, books on leadership, and particularly educational leadership, defined leadership in very limited ways, drawing their conclusions primarily from the activities and characteristics of white men. Leaders Who Dare is a thought-provoking book in an arena desperately in need of provocative ideas. The book presents a comprehensive and insightful analysis of leadership as described by women leaders of various ages, ethnicities, and levels of experience. Rich chapters, thick with the words of women leaders, make Lyman, Ashby, and Tripses' themes come alive. Especially important is the theme 'living and leading from values.' This theme underlies the purpose-driven leadership that is so essential to wide-spread student success. This study should be required reading for students of educational leadership. -- Michelle D. Young, Executive Director of the University Council for Educational Administration
