This book is packed with smart and sensible advice from remarkable women that will give you the confidence and inspiration to finally take action and start reaching for your dreams. Nadia Finer and Emily Nash wanted to love what they did, not loathe it. So they set off on a mission to find the country's coolest women (from neuroscientists to novelists, biologists to builders, and entrepreneurs to engineers), corner them and pump them for advice to find out exactly how they made their dreams come true. They discovered that there are thousands of women out there right now doing amazing things, and that there's a way of living and tackling the world that produces results. In this book they share their discoveries with you so that you too can ditch the drudge and kick start your life!
