Praise for The Women of Berkshire Hathaway

"It′s never easy to be a woman in a male–dominated profession, but the women of Berkshire provide valuable guidance for ambitious women at every stage of their careers. This is a perfect book for your daughter, your friend, your colleague, or your protégé."
Sylvia Ann Hewlett, Founding President, Center for Talent Innovation, and author of Winning the War for Talent in Emerging Markets: Why Women Are the Solution

"A uniquely compelling look at the lives of the successful women who work with Warren Buffett. The Women of Berkshire Hathaway is a must–read for all future leaders in this new era of business both men and women! This book inspired me to start my own business!"
Amanda Kimball, author of 2011 UC Davis Study of California Women Business Leaders

"This book is a collection of stories about the ′women of Berkshire.′ All are women that my father respects and admires because they are good managers and good people. I′ve had the great privilege of knowing all of the women in this book. These are stories for anyone interested in business, management, entrepreneurship, or just plain human drama." From the Foreword by Susie Buffett, Chair of the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation and the Sherwood Foundation
