It's a great book for women interested in politics, women in business and anyone who wants a modern day case study of women with power and influence and how the media reacts to that. I thought the author did a reasonable job with the research between interviews and storytelling. I'd highly recommend it.
Yes, overall I would. I like the concepts in the book, but in the intensity of crucial conversations, it will take a lot of practice and focus to apply the techniques they suggest. I suggest reading the book once, then focus on changing your conversation habits in small steps by revisiting chapter by chapter. I think the suggestions are sound, but the ideas are not revolutionary. Speak from the heart, focus on win-win vs. zero sum, pay attention to your emotions, and be a good listener. So easier said than done.
yes. In fact, because I listen during my commute, my mind sometimes wanders. I replayed the book three times to keep picking up where there were gaps in my attention. So, yes, it's definately worth reading/listening to.
