Through interviews with 23 successful women and men from a range of occupations, from a bomb disposal officer, leaders of major organizations, a surgeon, and a mountain climber among others, they identify demands and challenges these individuals faced and how they managed them. This engaging collection offers useful insights of benefit to all readers.'
