What does it take to lead the successful turnaround of four consecutive organizations? What does it take to run a $5 billion business in Detroit as the city struggles to emerge from municipal bankruptcy and its worst ongoing crisis ever?

All she talks about is how great and gay she is. I wanted a book that would help me lead and manage. I really don't care if she is straight or gay but apparently she wants me to care. She says it over and over in between telling us how great everyone thinks she is and how she did this or that for some health system. I have not gleaned one point that I can use.
I am a curious person and I own a business. I amazed myself by not finding anything in this book that I endured to the end. Karen Saltus' voice made me wonder what she maybe like as a person... this book was that useless.
