Great insight for the business woman

This is the most insightful book for business women that I've read. Glaser and Smalley do a fine job parsing the Queen Esther story and applying it to the modern business world. Women in business have to be more subtle about how they advance their careers and Queen Esther is a great example of that. Networking, researching (including gossip!), timing, finding mentors, etc. -- all intertwine to create strategic game plans that women can use to nurture their careers. I liked this book so much that I given away over 30 copies to business women I know.

The perfect book for study groups or clubs!

I've known the story of Queen Esther all my life, but Glaser and Smalley opened my eyes to a new level of meaning and relevance. Great leadership advice coupled with extraordinary examples of modern-day Esthers. A book for women in business that's both inspiring and uplifting. A rare find.

Inspiring, yet Practical . . . an Unbeatable Combination!!!

An ancient whistleblower and hero, Queen Esther provides incredibly valuable strategies for women today. What did Queen Esther know? More than you'd ever believe! Esther was strategic and understood the importance of mapping out her plan of attack. She was an astute communicator who chose her words carefully and deliberately. She understood the subtleties of "palace protocol" and how to penetrate the inner circles of power. I found it fascinating to discover the contemporary relevance of this ancient tale.Glaser and Smalley have established themselves as leading authorities on what it takes for women to be successful today. Great "royal" advice. A must read!

Outstanding Advice and Timeless Wisdom!

While reading the book, I was constantly amazed at the relevance this ancient story has for women in business today. From learning how to identify a mentor to finding the courage to stand up for your convictions, the book is chock full of practical strategies that we can all learn and benefit from.The authors do an excellent job of interweaving the timeless story of Queen Esther with "best practices" for women today. Well-written and well-documented, this book is sure to become a best seller. Perfect for book groups and discussion.

Learnings from Connie and the Queen!

"What Queen Esther Knew" is a wonderful parallel of the story from the Bible about a great woman leader and survivor, and how today's women can be true leaders on their own terms. When a woman puts her mind to accomplishing a priority, there's nothing that can stop her! The story of Esther truly provides the motivation and validation that we need to rely on our own hearts and spirituality to guide us throughout our professional and personal lives. On the other hand, the story clearly defines how we must learn to accept reality and strategize our success... it doesn't just happen because "we're in the right place at the right time". It happens because we have strategized our working relationships, our professional expertise, and our timing to be ready when the opportunity presents itself. Connie and Barbara have brought together a story from our history with stories from our present for us to learn and grow from. Thank you both!
