The best book I've ever read on women in business! Very enthusiastic realism and never boring. Very encouraging for employees as well as business owners. Our company plans to purchase several as gifts.
A great book to remind you of how it all works, I found myself talking out loud in agreement.
Amy does a great job of narrating this book, it is like talking to a girlfriend.
I particularly liked it when she talked about how women believe that if I just work hard and get great results someone will notice. Not true - the company will take your work happily and the men who ask and network will get the promotion. So true.
