Widowed mom shatters notions of how trailblazing CEOs look and act

If Crazy Rich Asians and a Greek tragedy had a literary offspring, it would be the spitting image of Why Should Guys Have All the Fun? The true story of resolute immigration lawyer and activist Loida Lewis, Why Should Guys Have All the Fun? begins with Loida’s adventure-packed Philippine upbringing. A torrid love affair with brilliant, irascible financier Reginald Lewis follows, as does regal living in Manhattan and Paris, and gut-wrenching loss, all before Loida shockingly commandeers a multibillion-dollar, multinational conglomerate and leads it with aplomb.

You’ll learn how she dealt with her husband's untimely death at the age of 50 and how she managed to raise two independent daughters even as she shepherded a multinational corporation to record earnings. Readers will also find:

  • Explorations of how the author overcame her severe depression after the loss of her beloved husband
  • Discussions of how faith and perseverance helped Loida overcome the myriad challenges and obstacles in her path
  • How the author, a Filipina-American woman, navigated a business world dominated by hard-charging white males

A fascinating and engaging memoir from one of America's leading female executives, Why Should Guys Have All the Fun? is an inspiring and uplifting true story of how an ordinary person can rise to achieve extraordinary things.
