Ce que les auditeurs disent de Work Smarts
I really love this book
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I recieved its one month trailer version which is not abridged. One month was a plenty of time to listen 6 hour book. Thank you for providing me this great opportunity to read/or listen/ the book written by the person whom I personally admire. I like her show, appearance, confidence, knowledge almost everything. And now I love her story. She is true role model for me.

A candid, insightful and inspiring book
I highly recommend this book to any recent college graduates about to launch their own careers. Entry-level employees are at the bottom of the corporate pyramid. This book is thus useful because it introduces the key points of how the prominent executives think, believe, work, and plan. It’s an honest and insightful book suitable to the young with ambitions and high expectations for their professional journey.
Must look deep for the gems!
I always appreciate a good intro and backstory before getting to the depth of a book, however this read required you to be 50% in and. E able to look beneath all the name dropping to get to the point the author was trying to make. I would have preferred a shorter book with the substance provided.
