    I won a sample copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. The regular version of this book includes mini-bios of 30 female CEOS along with some chapters with tips on how to start a business. Given I only received a small portion of the book which featured 4 of the women and a chapter on important business terms, I decided against leaving a rating. However, I did like what I read so I feel comfortable in recommending this book for young girls. While I'm sure the stories of the female C I won a sample copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

Given I only received a small portion of the book which featured 4 of the women and a chapter on important business terms, I decided against leaving a rating. However, I did like what I read so I feel comfortable in recommending this book for young girls. While I'm sure the stories of the female CEOs have the potential to inspire all types of readers, this book is more geared towards girls in the middle school age range. The CEOs chosen come from a wide variety of business fields including Media, Science, Apps/Tech, and Fashion/Apparel. Now some of the companies the women run I was unfamiliar with but there were a few I recognized including Bare Minerals, 23andMe, Spanx, and Nextdoor. Each bio had a brief story on the CEO's path to success along with some fun facts such as their high school GPA. worst subject in school, favorite childhood book, and how often they check their bank statement. One thing the 4 women I read about had in common was they didn't give up in pursuing their dreams. Sometimes obstacles were in their way but they figured out how to move on. The message to keep believing in yourself is an important one and that's why I think this is a good book to put in the hands of young girls. Thank you to Delacorte Press for sending me a sample copy!

    I loved this book. I started reading with my daughters in mind but kept reading because I was so inspired and captivated by these stories, which resonate, motivate, educate, and empower. When I finished, I wanted to get out in the world and do something big – because, like these women, I can. The format made the book engaging and easy to read. Each woman CEO has her own chapter which includes a fabulous illustration and starts with fun facts about her: her first job, a weird thing you’d find on I loved this book.

Each woman CEO has her own chapter which includes a fabulous illustration and starts with fun facts about her: her first job, a weird thing you’d find on (or in) her desk, her bedtime, her bucket list, her favorite candy, and more. There are great “tips” sprinkled throughout that relate to the story being told and that offer sound, encouraging wisdom. Just reading the tips alone is a confidence boost. The end of the book presents concrete ideas for how to think about starting a business and includes information about a business plan, market size, mission, and finances. All girls—and all women—would benefit from reading this book. It will spark creative thinking and help you feel empowered. The stories are simply entertaining as well.

    Women have been encouraged to Lean In, others have Dared to Lead and others prefer to Lean Out. Worthy books all of them, but focused on workforce strategies and women who have already launched. Diana Kapp, a savvy author and commentator who is wired into Silicon and all the valleys you can name, has delivered an inspirational How-To for the Not-There-Yets, the girls who are still dreaming before they can dare, learning before they know which way to lean.

Through lively profiles of 30 women who run startups both well known and on their way, Kapp provides real-life experiences that offer practical tips -- as well as avoidable trips -- for girls trying to figure out life goals. The illustrations help make this a fun and accessible read; a graphic tool for a Visual Generation. These CEOs are not just role models -- they are goal models and the vanguard for equality in the C-Suites.

    “Girls Who Run the World” by Diana Kapp is about 31 hardworking CEOs. This book talks about how they first started and some fun facts about themselves. The book also talks about the journey and all the struggles they went through pursuing their dreams. These CEOs are very encouraging because it shows that no matter how much people try to stop you or get in the way of your dreams , keep going. I would recommend this to all girls and women that are interested in making a company.

    *I won this book as a giveaway* If I had a young girl, I would absolutely give this book her! I will be handing it over to a friend with a 13-year-old. I own a small business and felt inspired by these women. I now have a lot of googling to do on these fabulous ladies and a lot to learn. Thank you Good Reds and Diana Kapp for the Giveaway!

    Ah, so tired of this narrative. “Girl”-CEOs? Would have loved to get the real stories about how these remarkable women closed the funding gap, overcame growth pains or found their growth strategy. Or anything else that has to do with building large businesses. Instead the book serves up the shallow stories that one expects to find in an average magazine article.

    Received this as an Advanced Reader Copy. I just finished skimming it and am excited to give it more time. It is an abbreviated version of the full book. There were only 5 ladies discussed. Each sound like they are ambitious and brilliant. Inspiring to young girls.

    Very informative, easy to read and inspiring for people of all ages but especially young women and girls who can see they can “run the world” and learn/be inspired by the 31 female CEOs who’ve succeeded in doing so.
