“Each governor’s journey to the state house is unique and each has lessons to be learned by anyone who wants to achieve a goal that is considered a stretch. This is particularly true of women who seek their state’s highest office, especially when they are the first in their state to hold that office. Barbara Robert’s tale is one that should both encourage and inspire.”

—Governor Christine Todd Whitman

“Roberts shows what it takes to make history—the guts to challenge the past and the passion to make a difference. Her book clearly shows why Barbara Roberts is a winner.”

—Ellen Malcolm, Founder of Emily’s List
