A must listen!

There are so many times I wonder how to reach my full potential and now with the guidance of Mary Key's strategies, I can begin my quest. This book is filled with women who have successfully raised themselves to their highest expectations. The use of real life examples, both achieved and failed attempts shows us the ins and outs of paths we can take. It's real and honest, and the strategies offered are realistic and obtainable. It's easy to listen to and gave very good advice to women both in the workplace and in everyday life. I think it is beneficial to all who take the time to listen and will see practical results. Narrated by Melanie Carey, we experience a voice that exudes confidence and authenticity creating a great listen.

Good advice for female professionals

I really appreciated that this book was written for a female audience, since the challenge of getting ahead professionally is very different for women than men.

It also was narrated fully aware that it's an audiobook; I don't know if adaptations were made after publishing for audiobook or what, but there were phrases like, "as your listening," which was nice. And the narration was very smooth.

I think that, if you listen to books just because reading is challenging for you for whatever reason, it's beautifully narrated and you should go for it. If, however, you read audiobooks because, like me, you like something to listen to while you're doing other tasks... I'd buy the book in print format instead. Because to really get the most out of this book, I think you should have a notepad, pen, highlighter, etc. So many times I wished I wasn't driving down the tollway because I really wanted to make note of some piece of advice in the book. So I had to focus really hard on it instead.

I do think the advice was useful and some of it was very timely for me personally. It definitely isn't a one size fits all book, though. Parts applied to me, others don't right now, and some probably never will. It's for a female professional and that can mean lots of different types of roles. I might actually purchase it in print, so that I can reread sections and make notes.

I definitely recommend it to any professional woman trying to figure out how to be successful in this competitive, male-centric world.

Interesting!

Seizing Success is an interesting reference book. Dr. Mary Key presents different strategies, based on realistic examples, to help and inspire women to succeed in leadership. This approach is positive and inspirational. We can positively impact our career, and our life in general, by changing our mindset, and I believe this guide can help. Melanie Carey did a great job narrating this guide. I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
