An inspirational collection of original letters written by remarkably accomplished women to future generations of success seekers

When facing obstacles to her own success, Michele R. Wright quickly discovered how valuable it is to have success warriors in your life who can inspire and guide you. With this in mind, Wright assembled luminaries from the entertainment, arts, business, and sports worlds to offer words of inspiration and invaluable advice to those seeking victory in their personal and professional journeys.

In these original pieces, the eighty-three contributors -- representing a diverse range of age, background, and experience -- share intimate stories of the challenges and triumphs, adventures and mishaps they faced that marked the road to their achievements. Mae Jemison, MD, the first female African-American astronaut, cautions that "'You can't' and 'You have to' are two deadly phrases that are stumbling blocks for many success seekers," and encourages those seeking success to "remain curious and inquisitive." Tennis great Billie Jean King suggests, "Use your talents to win, not only for yourself, but for generations to come." These women and award-winning actresses Shirley Jones, Ruby Dee, Mo'Nique, and Phylicia Rashad, Senator Mary L. Landrieu, Nobel Prize winner Rosalyn S. Yalow, New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer, and entertainer Patti LaBelle are just a few of the many women offering such pearls of wisdom.
