    Description

    By accepting the CEO job at Hewlett-Packard, an iconic company that had lost its way, Carly Fiorina confirmed her status as the most powerful businesswoman in America. But she also made herself a target for everyone who disliked her bold leadership style and resented her rapid rise.

    For six years, as she led HP through drastic changes and a controversial merger, Fiorina was the subject of endless analysis, debate, and speculation. She appeared on the cover of every major magazine, and her every word was scrutinized. Yet in all that time, the public never got to know the person behind the persona.

    Tough Choices will finally reveal the real Carly Fiorina, who writes with brutal honesty about her triumphs and failures, her deepest fears and most painful confrontations, including her sudden and very public firing by HP's board of directors.

    It's an amazing life story: Fiorina was a liberal-arts major and law-school dropout who didn't even consider a business career until her mid-20s. But soon she was blazing through big jobs at AT&T and then Lucent Technologies, with a growing reputation as a creative, hardworking, visionary leader. Her career path would have been remarkable for anyone, but in an industry dominated by men, it was unprecedented.

    Tough Choices shows what it's really like to lead a major corporation in a time of great change while trying to stay true to your values. It's one woman's inspiring story, along with her unique perspectives on leadership, technology, globalization, sexism, and many other issues.

    Tough Choices

    There are certainly 2 sides to every story but without knowing exactly what that other side is .... Carly's recounting of her career and the events that led up to her HP outsting was riveting and eye-opening. I learned so much of what success and the "success-climb" looks like from this book. Now I have some decisions to make regarding my own career. You can certainly get what you want but are you willing to to pay in self-invested education, the discomfort of politically charged situations, and the wear and tear put on your personal life. Well, for me I am still unsure. But, certainly for Carly ..... she rocks!

    great book

    This is a great book for everyone to read. It is a wonderul illustration of the permanent discrimination all women leaders must face in the workplace. Men and Women should read this to understand the business world and what the introduction of women into it means for American society. Fiorina is an inspirational female leader because she has built a historical career despite the fact that she is a woman.

    I couldn't stop listening

    I truly enjoyed Carly's story. She relates it in a frank, engaging and insightful manner. Every business leader should read this book because the lessons learned are universal.

    Just OK

    I'm not sure what I expected of this but it was disappointing. It gave some background of how she got to lead such a large corporation, but I didn't really get a sense of who she was. There wasn't much detail on the termination and then the book ended. I was left unfulfilled.

    Challenge to progress

    Carly's book is an inspiring look at the events that led up to her leaving HP. Though we all make mistakes, it's nice to be able to learn from other people's experiences. This book presents an account of a difficult process for both company and CEO. Good listen!

    Educated and Inspired

    Since seeing Carly present at a Gartner conference several years ago, I have been impressed with her and intrigued by her accomplishments. Now, I have heard about and felt much of the behind-the-scenes events. I was educated from her descriptions of the mechanics of large firms and inspired by achievements based on her leadership and her working harder and smarted than many of the people she faced in business. Carly, thank you for sharing and inspiring.

    Carly is inspirational

    I love that this is narrated by the author. It was enjoyable to listen to her tell her own story. Carly is inspirational to anyone (not just women) who wants to climb the ladder of success. I can't wait for her next book to come out.

    Inspiring and Excellant

    As a woman, Carly's words ring true. She is an incredible woman and was extremly sucessfull during her carrer, including HP. She brings up many great points about corporate america, the press, the perception of women in power. I definately recommend this audiobook!

    Tough Choices

    Interesting insight into Fiorina's business career, especially prior to her time at HP - overcoming the barriers to women in business and the stories of individual business successes and career choices.

    Her narrating was a real plus.

    Great book of lessons

    Great journey! Amazing to hear the personal story from Carly. I highly recommend this book to any woman (or man) in middle management striving for the next step. We can all learn from the successes and failures (or missed opportunities) of others.
