Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis -- her name alone evokes images of glamour and grace.

As first lady, her charisma captivated the world. Her charm entranced us, as when she shared the White House for all to see.

Facing the untimely and tragic death of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, Jackie exhibited courage and strength.

Few dispute her ease and expertise with her two children, Caroline and John Jr. And though all of her choices were not widely welcomed, Jackie lived her life, and death, with dignity, determination, and a little mystery, demurring to the end numerous requests to tell all.

But on the 10th anniversary of her death, what can we learn from this iconic woman. A new book by Tina Flaherty seeks to answer these questions. It's called, "What Jackie Taught Us: Lessons From The Remarkable Life Of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis."

Flaherty lives in the same building that Jackie Kennedy Onassis called home for thirty years. So she felt the world could learn valuable lessons from Jackie's life. There are 26 biographies about Jackie, but none of them document the secrets of her success.

Flaherty, a successful businesswoman in her own right, was the first woman elected vice president at three of America's largest companies; Colgate-Palmolive, GTE and Grey Advertising. She is a sought-after motivational speaker. This is her third book.

Tune in Wednesday's The Early Show to watch her interview.
