Although it's non-fiction, in feel it's an adventure which captures the excitement and drama as a young female Ph.D., with a supportive mentor, a small staff of young women and all the right moves, navigates uncharted waters at a turning point in Canadian social and business history. The story itself is also the record of a significant piece of herstory as this team develops what were then hi-tech solutions in Decision Support, a Merlin-esque area in management theory involving expert systems, mathematical modeling and exotic quantitative methods. These young women rescue their senior management repeatedly as they simultaneously attempt to pioneer a path through an all-male world. Using the power of story-telling to convey life's complex messages as well as exploring the techniques in context, the reader can recognize herself in the role. Part of a new trend in literature-based curriculum and interdisciplinary ventures, the book is designed to be both pleasurable and informative. Token Woman provides young women the opportunity to 'shadow' a management consultant, from her initial foot-in-the-door, through the maneuvers, to the councils of top management.
