From the back cover -
Voices from the Asian Pacific American business community speak out in this timely book. Through numerous interviews with business professionals, Diana T. Wu demonstrates the unique position of this group in the U.S. workforce. Frequently dubbed the "model minority" for their high education levels and achievements, Asian Pacific Americans offer personal accounts of, and recommendations for, succeeding despite the odds. Stories of racial discrimination, sexual harassment, and overwhelming familial expectations become catalysts for progressive change. The pages of this book are filled with thought-provoking exercises and effective strategies to tackle these and other issues.
