Publisher's Summary

In What I Told My Daughter, entertainment executive Nina Tassler has brought together a powerful, diverse group of women - from Madeleine Albright to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, from Dr. Susan Love to Whoopi Goldberg - to reflect on the best advice and counsel they have given their daughters either by example, throughout their lives, or in character-building, teachable moments between parent and child.

A college president teaches her daughter, by example, the importance of being a leader who connects with everyone - from the ground up, literally - in an organization. A popular entertainer and former child star urges her daughter to walk in her own truth, to not break glass ceilings if she yearns to nurture a family as a stay-at-home mother or to abandon a career if that's her calling. One of the country's only female police chiefs teaches her daughter the meaning of courage, how to respond to danger, and, more importantly, how not to let fear stop her from experiencing all that life has to offer. A best-selling writer who has deliberated for years on empowering girls wonders if we're unintentionally leading them to believe they can never make mistakes when "resiliency is more important than perfection".

Drivel

Maybe not my cup of tea.. Seems very forced on the mythologizing of mundane events.. Self indulgent.

What I wish I’d told my daughters

As a mother of 2 daughters I wish I could have told them some of what this book says. As the Grandmother of 2 granddaughters I will use this book as insight to inspire them forward.
