In What I Told My Daughter, entertainment executive Nina Tassler has brought together a powerful, diverse group of women—from Madeleine Albright to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, from Dr. Susan Love to Whoopi Goldberg—to reflect on the best advice and counsel they have given their daughters either by example, throughout their lives, or in character-building, teachable moments between parent and child. A college president teaches her daughter, by example, the importance of being a leader who connects with everyone—from the ground up, literally—in an organization. A popular entertainer and former child star urges her daughter to walk in her own truth, to not break glass ceilings if she yearns to nurture a family as a stay-at-home mother or to abandon a career if that’s her calling. One of the country’s only female police chiefs teaches her daughter the meaning of courage, how to respond to danger but more importantly how not to let fear stop her from experiencing all that life has to offer. A bestselling writer who has deliberated for years on empowering girls, wonders if we’re unintentionally leading them to believe they can never make mistakes, when “resiliency is more important than perfection.”

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Chair of CBS Entertainment, Tassler realized at a school volleyball game that she couldn’t offer her daughter advice on being a female athlete as she never played sports herself. She figured that other mothers saw similar gaps in their own background and asked female luminaries from all walks of life, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Gloria Estefan, and Christine Baranski among them, to share the advice they passed on to their own daughters.” Library Journal
“As Nina Tassler reads the introduction, her slow enunciation and sincere tone set the stage for us to absorb the personal stories of a collection of accomplished, often ceiling-breaking, executives and celebrities. With cogent, richly textured stories, these mothers reveal how they tried to prepare their daughters for lives of equal respect from others and unfettered, self-actualizing achievement. The narrators chosen to perform their stories are unfailingly true to the spirit of this book and well matched to the thoughtful women whose stories they render.” AudioFile
