This audiobook, by a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and WALL STREET JOURNAL editor, is a well-organized blend of her hard-earned knowledge of workplace sexism and the success stories of 52 high-profile female executives. Narrator Kirsten Potter doesn’t sound as engaged with this material as she has in other audios on similar subjects. But her business-casual speaking style works well for the material, and she gets the phrasing right, even when challenged by convoluted sentences or themes that require careful exposition. Emphasizing that women need to take the initiative in hostile or exclusionary work cultures, the author weaves together the trailblazing executives’ stories with a discussion of the growth of women’s empowerment as it has played out over the past four decades. This sum total is equal parts history and inspiration, written with the impact you’d expect from a newspaper pro. T.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2016]
