helpful and relevant synopsis

I definitely felt like this book was speaking to me and learnt a lot however i would have loved some more case studies. esp quantitative case studies. maybe a little humour or lightness. It is however a very practical book if thats what you want

If you are serious about your career - read it!

Would you listen to How Women Rise again? Why?

I am going to listen to this book, again and again. I am also planning to share it with all my lady-clients who come to me for coaching.

What did you like best about this story?

I've just finished listening to this book, and I must say: it says it all about the position of a woman in the workplace. I highly recommend it to every lady out there, who wants to succeed and win the game.

Excellent and a must for working women

This is an exceptional guide and full of insights and practical steps for women who are stuck in their career. We make these mistakes over and over because we’ve been institutionalised by societal expectations of how women should behave - including in work. Much to our own professional detriment and negatively impacting our wellbeing. Thankful that a friend recommended this book... much needed. Thank you to the authors.

Practical advice for women in business

Really enjoyed listening to this audiobook as part of our book club. It’s full of practical strategies to help yourself succeed and focused on women specifically. Found it enlightening - sometimes challenging when self reflecting but that’s a good thing.

This book promotes gender bias

According to these authors, in order for women to rise we must behave like men. Good grief!! If this is the best chance we have in 2020 there's really no hope.

Great book!

Well written and a very good guide to change habits that hold back women from success. I recommend for either women and men.

Thought provoking

Really enjoyed listening to this book in the car over the last two weeks. So much to think about and so much to gain insight on. I strongly recommend this to anyone working in a team. Everyone can learn something new and learn to see things from someone else's point of view.
