After an 11-year-old Kimberly Guilfoyle lost her mother to leukemia, her dad wanted her to become as resilient as she could be. He wisely taught her to build a solid case for the things she wanted. Creating a strong logical argument was the best way to ensure that she could always meet her needs. That childhood lesson led her to become the fearless advocate and quick-thinking spitfire she is today.
Learning how to state your case effectively is not just important for lawyers - it's something every person should know how to do, no matter what stage of life they are in. From landing her dream job right out of school, switching careers seamlessly midstream, and managing personal finances for greater growth and stability to divorcing amicably and teaching her young child to advocate for himself, Guilfoyle has been there and done it. Now she shares those stories, showing you how to organize your thoughts and plans, have meaningful discussions with the people around you, and achieve your goals in all aspects of your life. You'll also learn the tips and strategies that make the best advocates so successful, some of which come directly from courtroom scenarios where the stakes are highest.

"Making the Case provides a road map for personal success from a woman who has proved that it works." (Dan Abrams, author of Man Down)
I enjoyed listening to her life story, path to success, advice on taking your path to success, advice to have a successful marriage, manage your lifestyle, and remain content with everything life comes with.
Kimberly has done a wonderful job writing and narrating this book. You will see yourself in her story and get valuable insights for improving your daily life as well as you place in this world.
I think Guilfoyle is an amazing, intelligent voice on "The Five" and I was expecting so much more than this book delivered. Description didn't indicate this was a self-help for Millenials. So disappointing. Maybe she will write another and tell us about her life; I'm sure it's fascinating.

At times it seemed slow and monotone
I listened to about 2 hours of the book and it was just boring. It seems more of a autobiography instead of a motivational life advice book. At one time she talks about a prosecutor she interned for and went on and on and on unnecessarily. I am a big fan of her and her shows that she is currently hosting, but the book was a big let down.
