For these reasons, I highly recommend all people who work in, or aspire to work in, corporate/professional environments read this book!
I found the section of the book that discussed how to strategically self-promote yourself to be the most valuable. Personally, I have always found it difficult to self-promote because I did not want to come across as braggy or put myself above others. But this book challenged me to think about self-promotion in a different way.
I would highly recommend this book for someone who is just entering the workforce or is currently in the workplace but feels frustrated with how their career is advancing. Parts of the book are focused specifically toward women, racial or ethnic minorities but much of the advice is universal. In all, this book is perfect companion to working life, and I will no doubt revisit it during times of self-reflection.
