I really love this book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recieved its one month trailer version which is not abridged. One month was a plenty of time to listen 6 hour book. Thank you for providing me this great opportunity to read/or listen/ the book written by the person whom I personally admire. I like her show, appearance, confidence, knowledge almost everything. And now I love her story. She is true role model for me.

Must look deep for the gems!

I always appreciate a good intro and backstory before getting to the depth of a book, however this read required you to be 50% in and. E able to look beneath all the name dropping to get to the point the author was trying to make. I would have preferred a shorter book with the substance provided.
