BASIC BLACK The Essential Guide for Getting Ahead at Work (and in Life)

by | Read by Cathie Black

Business & Finance • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

A tasteful blend of solid advice and personal stories, this fast-moving audio by the president of Hearst Magazines speaks to the heart about what it takes to thrive at the highest corporate level. The confidence reflected in illustrations from her career is startling at times but is expressed without arrogance or combativeness. Her advice on understanding corporate politics, being paid what you're worth, and moving beyond personal minefields and misogyny is steady and uplifting. Black is not a professional reader by any stretch, but the message in her writing is so inspiring and her wisdom so pervasive that the sound of her voice becomes soothing and makes the listener wish for more.
