Essential for business women!

Where does The Little Black Book of Success rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Highly recommended

What does Shari Peele bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Inflection and I think hearing someone else's story is essential for a connection. You can more readily believe them and put things to action.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

To stand up for yourself, know your limitations and if need be walk away from a job when you find a better one. Be true to yourself.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the different readers and the different stories. I look forward to another book.

A must read for all business women

I purchased this book with the goal of learning about becoming a leader in my workplace. Although the book is tailored toward the Black female, I found the book to be informative. The book takes a real-life approach to the struggles that most women face when striving to become a leader in her organization. The "Mammaisms" make the book even more enjoyable by throwing in sayings that I heard in my home growing up. I highly recommend this book for all women in business.

Amazing read from start to finish.

I loved this book from start to finish. It was like reading a picture book without the pictures. I saw myself throughout the book, in situations I felt I dealt with in the past, present, and roles of leadership I know I will play in the future. I would recommend this book as a must read for all woman.

Thank you for giving back me

As an emerging black leader, I needed this. You've shared cultural codes with me, mamaism that I was raised on, and insider tips on how to navigate the world as a leader, while being a black woman.

Insightful and enlightening finally something for us!

I just finished this book and I feel I've learned so much in such little time! She definitely gives you the game of how to act and survive in the corporate world being a "black women." This book is great if you're already in the workforce or about to go into it. Definitely recommend it to those who want to have a better experience in the workforce.
