This book is an amazing story about a strong woman who identifies advocates and others that just saw here potential and helped her move her career in a promising direction. while also identifying others who stood in her way including herself at times. I read this book after I read Lean In; it is the perfect follow up. Sheryl Sandberg even writes the forward! this is a great book even for those who are not in the military! Loved it!!
The book is amazing! Insights into what it takes to be a leader military or civilian. The performance is a bit off with the acronyms but wouldn't be noticeable to most listening.
