This book lacks a clear focus. Sometimes it reads like a self-help book for relationships. At other times it comes across as a political diatribe. The reader should not expect much help regarding leadership. What does come across loud and clear is the author’s frustration with men’s stupidity. When the author does address male and female differences in leading, he misses the deeper issue. What is really missing from leadership are not females but the feminine. Our masculine-driven world devalues feminine qualities. Even women are expected to lead like men. There needs to be a balance between masculine and feminine. This balance needs to occur within each of us as well as within our society. The purpose of this book is unclear. As a result, there is not much purpose to reading this book. ( )

Book description
In Fernando Pargas' new work, he encourages men and women to work together to usher in a better world by re-defining what real leadership is. To realize this new world, he urges men to change their Piscean masculine qualities that emphasize survival to Aquarian feminine traits that accentuate thriving.

Female leadership centers on building and maintaining relationships while making the other guy look bad and blocking anything that will make him look good is what men are mostly about, he declares."We men have lived in our own certainty for all of history," he says. "We are so burdened by the baggage of culture, tribalism, gender, racism, ethnicity and religion that we have cut ourselves off from reality."
This better world that he envisions will be a change from the old, he argues, because men have driven the stage coach of history down a rocky cliff too often. Women, on the other hand, are prepared to take these stage coach reins of leadership and reorient them. And men must accept this startling new reality.
