". . . Parents can learn how to counter the negative forces and give their girls a
platform to succeed, according to "See Jane Win," a new book by Sylvia Rimm, a
correspondent for NBC's "Today" show.
Joined by her two daughters, both accomplished women, Rimm conducted a survey of 1,236
women nationwide considered to have successful and satisfying professional careers. She
also conducted in-depth interviews with several high-achieving women whose stories are
quite compelling. The book is a fascinating look at why people become who they are.
Parents will take away many practical tips and good advice on how to encourage their
daughters to aim high."------- Shari Roan,
