Reviews

"This book is indispensable not only for Asian women but for anyone seeking to lead a diverse team. By examining both the constraints and strengths of women embedded in a profoundly collaborative tradition, Jane Horan shows why authentic transformation in a time of demographic change must always be rooted in an understanding of culture." - Sally Helgesen, Author, The Female Vision, The Web of Inclusion, The Female Advantage, Thriving in 24/7

"A must read for policy-makers, businesses, educators and women who are interested in ensuring women in Asia achieve their full potential in the workplace and beyond." - Su-Mei Thompson, CEO, The Women's Foundation

"An eye-opening look into the Asia-specific context that companies and managers will want to be fluent in as they work to gender balance their organisations." - Avivah Wittenberg-Cox, CEO, 20-first

"A thoughtful and thought-provoking examination of bias and leadership. This is a timely book and Jane has an extraordinary ability to reflect and learn through her own research in order to share authentic insights with the reader." - Sung Hae Kim, Ed.D.

"Jane Horan presents a vivid glimpse of the lives and careers of female leaders in Asia. Through interviews with four women, she uncovered the 'poignant childhood events, political unrest, incurable disease, and tragedies' that made these women leaders different from their counterparts in other places in the world. The detailed descriptions make reading feel like listening to Jane telling the stories. Anyone who is interested in female leadership in Asia should listen to Jane's stories." - Pingping Fu, Associate Professor, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

"Jane Horan has captured the essence of 21st century leadership in her identification of the themes of spirit, authenticity, and relational networks as essential for success. How Asian Women Lead provides needed cross-cultural and feminine perspectives on what leaders - male and female; Asian or other - need to understand to be effective in the current and future milieu." - Kathy D. Geller, Assistant Clinical Professor, Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership and Management, Drexel University, USA

"How Asian Women Lead isn't your regular business book with charts, templates, checklists and 'how tos' . . . It weaves together academic insights from sociology, cultural and gender studies with perspectives culled from ethnographic interviews conducted by the author . . . Through embedding key lessons in the form of vivid and memorable stories, the book conveyed a heightened realism to the professional and personal obstacles faced by [women leaders in Asia]." - Cooler Insights
