Publisher's Summary

Striving While Black is a personal reflection, a playbook and a portable mentor for African-Americans and others who didn't and don't have the advantage of trailblazers who have gone before them in forging a successful corporate career. Success in corporate America is based on not only what you know - but, as importantly, who you know and who will sponsor you, share information with you as well as advocate for you. This book shares in a straight talking manner what those who feel marginalized in corporate need to do for themselves to be seen as competitive and value added.

    "reader is horrible, and reads with no enthusiasm,"

    his voice slurs. He is less exiting then Ben Carson. He should not have been chosen for this book, or any book.

    "This is a great resource!"

    As a senior manager for a research institution, I found the insights in this provided enlightening. This will be a must read for my 10 and 7 year olds when they come of age.

    "Kwame offers sound advice. Highly reccomended!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Striving While Black to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the book. I listen to books when I am driving instead of the radio.


    What other book might you compare Striving While Black to and why?

    Wish there were more like this. If someone knows please leave the information.


    What about Kwame S. Salter’s performance did you like?

    He has been in the trenches and gives his experience to those that want it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.
