Banishing Bureaucracy: The Five Strategies for Reinventing Government

Front Cover
Girlfriend to Girlfriend is a compilation of advice recalling Julia Boyd's sister circle. The sisters are back in full form -- ready, willing, and able to lend their shared wisdom, encouragement, and homegirl attitude to help women "get through the minute-to-minute obstacle course called daily living." Topics covered include: self-love, appearance, family relationships, sexuality, self-esteem, burnout, fear, challenges, money, and self-support -- all in the context of black women's experience.
