I just finished this book, and I was delighted. The book is split up into three parts. Part 1 focuses on how to get the success you desire, by setting the ground and golden rule: Go Big or Go Home. This section focuses on how to figure out what you want in the first place, how to handle interviews, and basics about a workplace. Part 2, How to Go Big with Success, outlines going above and beyond, how to look and sound powerful, and how to be efficient with your goals. The third and final part focuses on how to savor success: time-management, stress relief on a crazy day, and even maternity leave when the time comes.
Kate White, who is by the way a New York Times Bestselling Author, gives a straight-forward, witty and personal account of her career and how you can learn from it. This book is perfect for all ages and stages, from me, about to embark on the internship journey, to someone leaving to have a baby, to someone starting a new job, or someone shifting gears completely.
White's editorial skills translate into her book, with sections and rules frequently resembling magazine headlines. They entice, inform, and inspire. And unlike a Cosmopolitan headline, they might be a bit more accurate... but can't get you anywhere in bed.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book. I wanted to keep reading, I felt I learned something new in each sitting, and I wasn't bored to tears reading boring information that didn't apply to my current career. It does apply to my current career, and will apply in every step going forward as well.
