    I finished this book in two days; I couldn?t put it down. As I read page after page I couldn?t believe the things she wrote were actually happening. What a disappointment that an esteemed branch of our country?s military worked so hard to limit the potential and the opportunities...

    Kate Germano was a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Marines when she was assigned to Paris Island training unit. She found the Marines trained women and men separately and the men's training was much better than the women's. She decided to improve the women's performances and wa...

    Excellent book. Shows how gender bias is real and still enforced. At our military levels and everywhere. LtCol Germano did everything right to prove that women were just as worthy to be in the marines as men are. Increasing their physical and intellectual skills across the board, but t...

    I truly felt Germano's anger throughout this book. No one should be fired for simply doing there job, especially as spectacularly as she has. Probably in the middle of the book, I almost thought I couldn't read anymore. The complaining was starting to drain on me. But I continued readi...

    I felt that I had a better understanding of the events that made the news regarding LtCol Germano - from her perspective. At the same time, the organization and flow of the book made me want to give up reading it on a few occasions. I wish Goodreads had 1/2 ratings - If that was the c...

    Insightful, honest, and a must-read. ...

    This book had a lot of great points but when it repeated them in depth multiple times over it started getting pretty old. ...

    I finished this book in two days; I couldn?t put it down. As I read page after page I couldn?t believe the things she wrote were actually happening. What a disappointment that an esteemed branch of our country?s military worked so hard to limit the potential and the opportunities...
