About The Confident Woman
increases self-awareness and self-understanding and in very concrete ways
helps you to change your life. Each claim is well-supported by findings
from social science research, but is delivered in such an open, human
voice that you feel the author is sitting across from you in your living
room (over tea) and speaking directly to you. Hansen-Shaevitz is compassionate
and funny -- and among the wisest women I know.
What an amazing
body of work Reading it is like being with your dearest, wisest, most
loving friend. This book is going to enlighten so many women --
it's a gift. You are a gift.

The Confident Woman definitely has power. I immediately got sucked
into the book and read the first 5 chapters. You, my dear, have a definite
HOME RUN with this! It is kind, informative, well-written, fun. I can't
wait to buy LOTS of copies and deliver them to many good friends and colleagues.
Woman is going to change people's lives. Marjorie Hansen Shaevitz's
new book is a gift you can give others, but it is one you must
give to yourself.

Woman... an insightful, sensitive, warm, practical, inspiring book
that is bound to have a positive impact on those who read it. From the
first "tea break" through the last "book break" it challenges readers
to change their ways of thinking and acting, yet it also offers fun, easy
tips for increasing confidence. While the book is a must-read for today's
younger women, it is also for so many others. With each page I thought
of another special person in my life with whom I wanted to share this
wonderful gift... good friends, favorite aunts, sisters, my mom. It's
also for the men in our lives-- husbands, fathers, brothers-- because
The Confident Woman offers men important insights about women. Finally,
this book is a special gift to its readers... it shows us, once and for
all, how to value ourselves.

You have done
an incredible amount of work and come up with a manual that is easy to
read, personally warm and revealing, and my highest compliment: very practical
and useful. I've been a therapist for over thirty years and a trainer
for twenty four of those. Occasionally I find some book or tape that is
so useful that I assign it to all my clients. I may change the ritual.
I think I will make it a gift to the women with whom I work. They will
love it and they will get the additional bonus of saving hundreds if not
thousands of dollars seeing me. Is that what they call the gift that keeps
on giving? Thank you for being you, for being generous of heart and for
modeling courageous behavior in sharing you, in progress. That is what
will touch peoples hearts, so few risk it.

has done it again! The Confident Woman--like The Superwoman
Syndrome--provides needed advice that "hits the mark" for today's
women leaders. I will recommend it to all the women executives that I
work with. Even more, The Confident Woman needs to be read by all
leaders of the future, both women and men!

We have enjoyed
your book tremendously--what a marvelous resource and gift thanks to what
clearly was a mountain of effort! The Confident Woman has it all--poetry,
thought-provoking facts, humor and humanity, generous suggestions, personal
stories of success and learning. What a gift to the reader who realizes
that a fulfilling life is an inside out job and the best gift we can give
ourselves (and others) is to truly know ourselves...and then go for it!

a down-to-earth format that shows women how they can acquire the basis

useful for the highly accomplished woman who tries to do too much.
The Female Advantage: Women's Ways of Leadership
leadership is impossible. Without confidence, a fulfilling life is impossible.
With the insight and wisdom gained from her vast personal experience and
a rich research tradition, Marjorie Hansen Shaevitz offers us a new book,
The Confident Woman, that will encourage each of us to be all that
we were meant to be, and to contribute to the world from the depths of
our own personal wisdom and experience. It is impossible to read this
book and to remain limited by a lack of self-confidence.
