Congratulations friend and author, Lee Miller, Esq. The Huffington Post just selected “A Woman's Guide to Successful Negotiating,” as one of the “16 Books Aspiring Women Should Read,” along with books like “lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg.   Honored  to be quoted in it.
 
"The reason this book has not only endured but has received such critical acclaim is thanks to the amazing women, like yourself, who shared their wisdom with us. Thank you. I am grateful for your help and your friendship."  -Lee Miller, Author

I have known the author, Davidson for over a decade.  We met prior to her diagnosis., having collaborated on some health projects.  Personally,  she is a person of  high integrity. Professionally, I have and still admire her excellent research, health advocacy and writing skills.  It's no wonder she has taken a negative, and utilized her skills to help others who may falsely think they're going crazy post-chemo.  Her research is invaluable for patients and clinicians. Thank you for sharing your experience reading it.
