An insightful read
Overall, this book is a great mix of how-to and why. It gives very insightful information about the paths of great intellectuals that happen to be women. It also guides you on the start of your path to become an icon like these women.
The performance wasn’t bad but it’s wasn’t spectacular either. There are times where the speaker is unintelligible, maybe due to mispronunciations. But for the most part, I enjoy having a woman narrate this book, as it helps drive home the points.
The advice in the book is priceless, from the “children when you’re ready” talk down to the quality of clothing you should buy when starting out.
