Following on from the success of her acclaimed bestseller Ten Eternal Questions, Zoë Sallis has conducted an exciting new collection of interviews, this time with 40 of the most successful, talented, compassionate and inspiring women in the world. She has selected an extraordinary and diverse range of interview candidates, including Isabel Allende, Joan Baez, Tracey Emin, Yoko Ono and Benazir Bhutto – women who have worked hard to achieve great things in their chosen fields.
Thirty years after they entered the workplace in earnest, women are now fighting to make a difference, whether in politics, business, sports or the arts. This book not only celebrates their achievements, but also gives us a fascinating and personal insight into the minds, lives and dreams of some of the world’s most powerful women, from Nobel Peace Prize winners, presidents and entrepreneurs to comediennes, musicians and artists – each giving their own personal take on ten key questions. Revealing, honest and at times heart-breaking, these great women offer in their answers tales of struggle and strength against all the odds as well as words of wisdom and guidance for women everywhere. You’ll learn about Judi Dench’s greatest fear, Jane Fonda’s most important inspiration, Sinéad O’Connor’s advice for the next generation … and so much more.
Original, thought-provoking and highly relevant to our time, this book will be an inspiration to all those women seeking change, hope and the courage to believe in themselves.
