Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Liza Finlay on September 11, 2012
Format: Paperback
Ambition is a powerful read. Rubin not only provides a stunning glimpse inside the minds of some of the most ambitious people in the world, but she also finds the underlying patterns and essential attributes of their genius. Rubin plumbs the psychology of ambition, using sometimes-humourous, sometimes-heartbreaking stories to bring her psychology to life. The result is a book that is at once compelling and enlightening. As you turn the last page you vow to live your own life a little more ambitiously. --Liza Finlay, psychotherapist and author

By PaloAltoMustRead on September 12, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book was essential for me when I decided to go back to work after my sabbatical. The seven rules that Ellie Rubin outlines in her second book made the transition back into work much easier. I especially liked her chapter on belonging, which reminds us all how important people are no matter how digitally adept we become. Read this!!!
