“Drawing on Eleanor Roosevelt’s inspiring life and words, Robin Gerber has given us a powerful primer for leaders in any field and of any political stripe.” (Congressman Richard Gephardt, House Democratic Leader)

“[Gerber] tells Eleanor’s story with descriptive flair and gives readers wise advice about finding their leadership passion and following it.” (Billie Jean King)

“Like Mohandas Gandhi or Martin Luther King, Jr., Eleanor Roosevelt seems a miracle of character and charisma, a born leader whom no one could hope to emulate. Robin Gerber penetrates this aura . . . and exposes the nuts and bolts of an eminently practical leadership style-one from which we can all learn and learn much.” (Alan Axelrod, author of Patton on Leadership and Elizabeth I, CEO)

“Eleanor Roosevelt changed the world with her leadership. Robin Gerber tells us how she did it, weaving the first lady’s life story and words into empowering leadership advice for today . . . [A] great read and a terrific leadership guide.” (Lt. General Claudia Kennedy)
