A PERSON IS A PRODUCT OF TIME, PLACE, AND CIRCUMSTANCES

In this book Alla P. Gakuba expertly postulates and shares with readers her knowledge and know-how skills: regarding when to take or not to take a risk; expertise on how to embrace new events and challenges; defining what self-esteem is; recognition that ability is nothing without opportunity; ideas and examples how to create national wealth; explanation what engineering is; and avoidance of despair, learning instead to stand up, fight back, and save oneself.

One story in this book—A person Is a Product of Time, Place and Circumstances—applicable to everyone, specially to American women and to the author herself. The time: the 1970s–1990s were historic years for American women. Turbulent, challenging and exiting years—in 1964 the Civil Rights Act was created in the USA. The place: the USA. The circumstances: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 gave, for the 1st time in American history, equal employment opportunity to women and to minorities—the opportunity to fail or to succeed, on their own terms.

Brilliant and pioneering women in these generations sacrificed, endured, and overcame monumental problems. They took a risk—millions entered the labor force and colleges to compete in hostile, male working environments.

The results were beyond wildest imaginations. Astonishingly, in less than 2 generations American women succeeded—they overtook American men in their accomplishments. Today 60% of American women are graduating with college degrees versus 40% of American men. More women are employed today than men, and women are more financially savvy than men, especially younger women. The author was also a product of this historic time and was working as a female structural engineer in an all-male profession. She survived, succeeded, and made many contributions.
