Publisher's Summary

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.

Interesting and Educational

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.

If you're 20 and need advice...

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.

A How-to for millennials

While all if it was true and good advice, I found it to be very basic. That said, great reading for America’s youth.

Must Read

This is one book that should be in your arsenal for success in life. I loved that Kimberly talked this audio version. It was like she was sitting next to me in the car having a conversation. Wish I had discussion with her many years ago. Awesome Lady. Must read or listen book.

Inspiring, Motivational, and Entertaining

Finished this in one sitting as it was amazing. I learned a lot and felt inspired to be my best self each and everyday. Kimberly Guilfoyle, is a strong and determined woman! This a great book for everyone but especially empowers women to be uunapologetically fearless and brave in all avenues and aspects of life. As a woman pursuing a legal profession, it was wonderful how she not only talked about the progression of her legal career but her journey every step of the way. Great book!

As good as it gets.

An amazing story by a true hero. People like K G are few, but they're out there. She is a gift to the human race. If more people could be half what she is the world would be a better place. Learn something from her story and practice it in you life. You will be a better person for it.

Wrong Title

What would have made Making the Case better?

Not using the word I so much, this book was how Kimberly became her own advocate

What was most disappointing about Kimberly Guilfoyle’s story?

She may have worked hard for everything she got, but everybody does. Life seems very easy for this young lady.

Which scene was your favorite?

Not very many, I struggle to finish it

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Making the Case?

This book was about the author, the only chapter that I really enjoyed reading was the first one. I really wanted more ideas on being my own advocate, not Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Any additional comments?

Her idea of a dress code is laughable, her stilettos heels, low cut form fitted dresses, ha ha Not many women dress like that or could where I work.

Autobiography

Would you try another book from Kimberly Guilfoyle and/or Kimberly Guilfoyle?

Not at this time

Would you ever listen to anything by Kimberly Guilfoyle again?

Not at this time.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

At times it seemed slow and monotone

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, Bored

Any additional comments?

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.
