About the Author
Patty Azzarello became the youngest general manager at Hewlett-Packard at age 33, ran a $1B software business at 35 and became a CEO at 38 (without turning into a self-centered, miserable, jerk). Whether leading massive business transformations or advising CEO’s 1-to-1, her insights, integrity, and generosity have fused with her work to create life-changing impact on the careers of thousands of people in large and small companies across the world. Patty is a remarkably down to earth executive who has a rare gift for making you realize your success is more achievable than you ever imagined. This has made her one of the most highly sought after advisors in business today. It’s simple: When you work with Patty, you get better. Patty has held leadership roles in General Management, Marketing, Sales, and Product Development, including Vice President and General Manager of HP OpenView, President and CEO of Euclid Software, and Chief Marketing Officer for Siebel Systems.

I have my own small business and this book has made me re-evaluate my work and make postive changes that will allow me to expand and succeed while maintaining balance in my life.
Whether you're just starting your career or you're already a CEO, buy this book. You won't find another author with as much common sense and practical experience as Patty. And it's a fun, witty read packed with real world examples. This is genuine stuff written by someone who has obviously achieved work/life balance and I'm thrilled she's decided to share it with us!
I used to read this type of books and all of them are very generic, using just common sense to catch your attention. This case is different, RISE is very practical book with real tips and examples coming from experience. In most of the cases, you see senior executives advisors writing books. In this book you will see one successful Executive sharing her own experience and tips.
If you need help or a mentor advise about how to progress in your career, you will find some answers in this book. Specially , if you feel trapped in your position and want to hear how to escape and grow, do not think it twice!. The author will give you the tips and the mistakes that you need to avoid to have a successful career. I know that this book can be applied also to your life, but in my case I focus the author message in my professional life.
Patty provides a simple three-step program (1. Do Better; 2. Look Better; 3. Connect Better) one can follow in a prescribed and pragmatic, step-by-step manner. And she provides a measurable amount of the wisdom and specific guidance in a freakin' $19 book that one would pay many hundreds of dollars for in one of her in-person trainings. I would know this, because I've spent several hundred dollars to take one of Patty's training sessions. And I thought THAT was money well spent.
After reading this book, I'm buying multiple copies for my wife, friends and associates. Because it's a bargain. In fact, I don't think you'll find this type of counsel, written in plain-spoken language and designed to provide you a myriad of short cuts, anywhere else. I know that I haven't.
