Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

From the New York Times bestselling author of WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, Nikki Haley's sharply intimate and inspirational book celebrates the world's most iconic women leaders.

“If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.” —Margaret Thatcher

In the spirit of Thatcher’s quote, Ambassador Nikki R. Haley offers inspiring examples of women who worked against obstacles and opposition to get things done—including Haley herself. As a brown girl growing up in Bamberg, South Carolina, no one would have predicted she would become the first minority female governor in America, the first female and the first minority governor in South Carolina, or the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Her journey wasn’t an easy one. She faced many people who thought she didn’t belong—and who told her so. She was too brown. Too female. Too young. Too conservative. Too principled. Too idealistic. As far as Nikki was concerned, those were not reasons to hold her back. Those were all reasons to forge ahead.

She drew inspiration from other trailblazing women throughout history who summoned the courage to be different and lead. This personal and compelling book celebrates 10 remarkable women who dared to be bold, from household names like Margaret Thatcher and Israel’s former prime minister Golda Meir, to Jeane Kirkpatrick, the first female U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, to lesser-known leaders like human rights activist Cindy Warmbier, education advocate Virginia Walden Ford, civil rights pioneer Claudette Colvin, and more. Woven with stories from Haley’s own childhood and political career, If You Want Something Done will inspire the next generation of leaders.

Enjoyable & Inspiring

This book brought clarity to many women’s lives I had heard about over the years. Nikki Haley’s narrating was pleasant to listen to and the women she chose to write about were so inspiring, each in their own unique way. I would highly recommend this book.

An Inspiring read!

Nikki Haley did a great job talking about inspiring women and their stories. I found myself yelling woo hoo and pumping my fist in the air several times. She reminded me it’s OK to go after things that I want regardless of what other people think about it. I recommend this book to all women.

Very inspiring

I have always been extremely impressed by Ms. Haley from the moment I saw her at the United Nations (on TV of course), not because she was a woman but because she spoke clearly, without double talk and with a wonderful sting of truth for those who would just sit, listen and keep the same path. This book did not disappoint. I enjoyed learning details of the women who made a difference in the world. I could listen to more chapters, if there was to be additional books released.
