In March, the author first announced former Iowa state Supreme Court Justice Marsha Ternus and an Oprah’s Book Club author Jane Hamilton, as two of the six women featured in the upcoming book. The remaining two women featured will be announced in mid June 2014.

The book will highlight six women who encompass the traits of an outlier, identified over thirty years of author John Shufeldt’s career.

“There is no cookie cutter or formula for an outlier,” said Shufeldt. “You simply know one when you see one, and the women featured have pushed the envelope in one way or another to break stereotypes, accomplish more than they ever imagined and even make history.”

One of today’s announced women, Christine Jones became an official 2015 Arizona Gubernatorial candidate qualifying for the AZ ballot after turning in 21,580 nominating petition signatures, nearly four times the minimum number required, in late April 2014. Jones, who previously worked as the chief legal counsel and vice president at GoDaddy, made it a priority to be leader in the fight for a better, safer online experience for users, particularly children.

Oliver is also an at-large member of the Board of Trustees for the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO). Olivier's work has earned various honors including the American Glaucoma Society's Humanitarian Award (2012), and AAO's Secretariat Award (2011).

About the book:
Ingredients of Outliers: Women Game Changers was inspired by several women encountered by author John Shufeldt, who exemplify the rare and exceptional qualities of outliers. The 125-page-book is packed with advice and inspirational stories from “outliers," in this case exemplary and influential women as well as chapters on John’s personal experiences and endeavors. A few of the featured women include Jane Hamilton, author of A Map of the World, of Oprah’s Book Club Collection; Marsha Turnus, the first woman to serve as chief justice of Iowa’s highest court; Christine Jones, an Arizona 2015 Gubernatorial Candidate; and Mildred Oliver, CEO of Midwest Glaucoma Center, P.C.. The purpose of this book is to act as a surrogate mentor to young ladies, and anyone out there, man or woman, looking to achieve more than they previously imagined was possible.
