'If You Want Something Done...' by Nikki R. Haley

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.05.22

From the New York Times bestselling author of WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, Nikki Haley’s sharply intimate and inspirational new book IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DONE… celebrates the world’s most iconic women leaders.


Margaret Thatcher famously said, “If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.” In the spirit of Thatcher’s quote, Haley offers inspiring examples of a range of women who worked against obstacles and opposition to get things done—including Haley herself. Haley draws inspiration from trailblazers throughout history who summoned the courage to be different and lead.

This personal and compelling book celebrates ten remarkable women who dared to be bold, from household names like Margaret Thatcher and Israel’s former prime minister Golda Meir, to Jeane Kirkpatrick, the first female U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, to lesser-known leaders like human rights activist Cindy Warmbier, education advocate Virginia Walden Ford, civil rights pioneer Claudette Colvin, and more.

Some of these women chose a public path in life. Others found themselves, by no choice of their own, facing terrifying and life-changing situations. All rose to the challenges they faced to become leaders who have made a difference in the world. As Haley writes in the introduction, “They all share something in common that spans time and geography—they embody the qualities that make great leaders. Tenacity. Perseverance. Service. Decisiveness. Courage. Strength. They made and continue to make an impact on the world. They inspire us, make us want to work harder, be better, do more.”

Haley goes on to say, “There will always be people who want to tell you what you can do and what you can’t. What is possible and what is not. I know because I have encountered those people throughout my life. Some of them were well-meaning. But all of them wanted to limit my potential. Your potential is limitless. Your life—the life you want—is worth fighting for.”
