By Reshma Saujani (Currency, 2019)
Author Reshma Saujani is the founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, a national nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology through after school clubs for girls in grades 3-12, summer courses, and on-campus student organizations at colleges. Her book’s premise, based on her TED talk, is that boys are taught to be “brave” and take risks while girls are taught to be “perfect,” which makes them risk-averse. Saujani maintains this fear of failure or the imperfect holds women back in careers like technology and other industries. She offers tips on building a bravery mindset, nixing the need to please, embracing and surviving failure, and more. While this book is clearly geared toward female readers, this writer believes dads with daughters and men with female colleagues could also glean some insights.
