I never expected this book to be full of so many examples of real experiences and usefull advice.
I would recommend it to everybody who wants to improve their every day working methods or to become a better manager/leader. The author, Sheryl, sometimes refers to women (or other outsiders, for instance people of other colour) in some situations and how they could handle those properly, but for me this book is written for everybody who would like to enhance their professional und personal relationships and get better at doing their job at every position in a company.
Some of most rememberable advices came with a phrase, that I'll think of for a long time. For example the methaphor about mothern career paths being not a ladder but rather a "jungle gym"; telling the truth ("My manager is bad!"); looking for a mentor ("Excel and you will get a mentor") and many many more.
What was most surprising to me was how humble and honest the author is. I'd expect that a successful and powerful woman would be aroggant or condescending in some kind of way, which there is no trace of in this book of wonderful guidelines.
So read it! You won't regret it!
