    This book follows the lives of four women highlighting their childhood to current times as they navigate the male dominated venture capital world of Silicon Valley It is a fast, good read I am left thankful that these four women agreed to share their lives and their struggles I don t think men with similar stories would have made for a compelling read Because at the end of the day on a simplistic level, these four women are just good business people doing deals that resulted in lots of returns for their investors And in the world of vcs, many can claim this title The difference here, is they faced challenges they didn t realize going into their profession simply because of their gender Ultimately, they had to forge new ground and challenge the norms just to do their jobs As I finished the book, I was saddened that this story is still being told Women have made strides, but those strides have come with a great cost Change moves so slowly Stories like these encourage those who need to know they are not alone and they also show the fortitude needed to compete in male dominated entities.
