This was a difficult read for me, but in a good way. I can usually read a book this size in a couple of days, but this one took me over a month to read. It is chock-full of hard truths, nearly all of which really hit home for me. Every couple of paragraphs, I had to put it down to mull over what was said and how it applies (or can be applied) to my life. This book forced me to take a hard look at me life and how my actions affect it. 

I love that it is written as if the author is just chatting with you and that she uses her own real life experiences to demonstrate her points. I much prefer this style to other self-help/motivational books that read like textbooks. The only downside, is with the large volume of anecdotes, some of them go unfinished or get broken up into pieces with others in between. 

One thing to keep in mind when considering this book, is that it is targeted at women. The title does not do a great job at making that obvious. While I think men could still benefit from some of the advice, it is clear upon reading the book that the author is speaking to other women. 

Overall, I think it's a great read, just give yourself some time to reflect in the process.

Does have good points in it. If you get lessons learning through many lessons in one book, this book can be for you. It does not mean that I don't get anything from them but not too many. It is more life lessons/events of author and real life situations/potential situations. Information is intertwined with the stories.

I received in advance readers copy in exchange for an honest review. 

This is a good book for women who need to learn to ask for what they want and believe in themselves. Ite not a book about social and communication skills in business, navigating office politics, or achieving negation with difficult people. Recommend for young women about to finish school, as many of the narrative examples in this book are the author as a professor giving advice to students.
