Candid, insightful page turner
I found this book to be a fascinating and accurate journey of what it
was like to do business for women
especially in the 60s, 70s, 80s but
also well into the 21st Century. It's quite a page turner for a memoir
and for me a trip down memory lane because I too faced some of the same
and personal choices. Janet, NYC Amazon
Nearly impossible to put down
It was an exciting, fast paced read – nearly impossible to put down, and each time I did, I was filled
with excitement and anticipation for the next moments I could steal time away from the demands of life
to pick it back up again! – Pam S., FL
Exciting & Adventurous Journey
This book has enlightened my heart through her journeys and so many
memories! Her amazing life of her past
and her traveling on her own has
inspired me to do more with my life. When challenges come, I will think
of this book and never give up! Just what I needed. Great book!

Marilyn Howard invites the reader into
In The Writing on the Wall, Marilyn Howard invites the reader into the
life and business experiences
of a woman who became an entrepreneur in
New York in the ‘70s’. She writes of the importance, in life and
career, of recognizing and dealing with challenge, finding –or
creating—opportunities and making
the most of the cards in your hand.
The style is engaging. She recounts early adventures, planning

and the development of her
business. Women with related experiences
will find validation. Younger women
can find encouragement and
guidance. Gioia B&N

I really enjoyed hearing an accurate
I really enjoyed hearing an accurate account of what life for women
with drive was like in the 1960s thru 1980s.
I feel like a lot of the
books about this time period dramatize what it was like to be an actual
this period. Marilyn didn't set out to change the world
but it was obvious from reading it she wasn't satisfied with
how it was
either. She took what she was given and turned it into something worth
I often take for granted, as a women in her 40s, that I
have had mentors and lessons in business. I give Marilyn
a lot of
credit for navigating it without any real guidance and picking up from
her mistakes along the way.
My favorite parts of the book included her
describing how college was viewed for a young women seeking
and saying no to the traditional conventions of what a women was
supposed to be or want.
Marilyn's book really does a good job of
describing how women are strong and complex when it comes to
making. In a nutshell, a real perspective of a women who challenged
of her time and became successful even when facing
adversity. EW, VA, B&N
Being a female entrepreneur in the 70s
was not easy...
Being a female entrepreneur in the 70s was not easy and women like
Marilyn Howard have paved the way. In
her memoir, the author shares her
journey as to how she managed to balance career with motherhood and
marriage, while still maintaining her sense of who she is all along the
way. I thought this was so incredibly
interesting and engaging. It's a
memoir I will want to re-read later on. The insights shared here are
valuable and I'm glad to have read this book. If you are a
woman looking to be inspired and want to break
hrough your own glass
ceiling (or whatever your limits may be), this is the book for you.

Review by Jamie Michele for
Favorite — Very
Marilyn Howard delivers a strong and timely autobiography,
and it's no wonder she was able
to fill a whole book with her stories. We're fortunate to have her share a span
through her early life, friendships, exciting stories as she traversed the globe,
legal woes and
government foes, and motherhood. The latter was juggled with the
of an octopus, while her
shooting star continued to rise and illuminate he Manhattan skyline
so dearly loves. While reading this
well-written, engrossing, and witty memoir, I often read
bits of sadvice out loud to my teenage daughter who enjoyed
them as much as I did.
And honestly, if you can get a teenage girl to smile you’re knocking it
out of the park.
