Only 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women, and Joann S. Lublin, management news editor for The Wall Street Journal, includes many of them, as well as other female business leaders, in this book. Most were “firsts,” just as Lublin, in 1969, became the first female summer intern at WSJ’s Washington bureau. “They dismantled the old boys club, destroyed myths about the capabilities of female leaders and continue to serve as role models.” Lessons are to be learned, but Lublin, a first-rate writer, makes the stories of this “unique elite” a pleasure to read.
