"Women interested in learning how to parlay volunteer work into career gains may find Callan’s example useful. But without broader insights to engage an audience, the book seems best suited to the author’s inner circle, rather than readers at large."

Synopsis

Standing My Ground, a riveting account of life lived to its fullest and service by Dr. Clair Callan, physician, leader, and female business executive. The memoir recounts how Clair succeeded in the mostly male medical and business environments that seldom welcomed women. Among her achievements were leading the rookie team that developed the $billion dollar drug – Sevoflurane, - cracking “the glass ceiling” at Abbott Laboratories, becoming president of the Illinois State Medical Society and the American Medical Women’s Association, and vice-president of research and scientific affairs at the American Medical Association.
