The title of this book suggests that it’s a How-To Guide for a career person climbing a corporate ladder, but it is so much more than that.

This is a thoughtfully written, well-structured and balanced book offering layers of useful insight – primarily for women – entering, or returning to, the workforce.

Mishal speaks personally throughout the book. She reveals her fears and insecurities about building a career and describes the barriers she has faced along the way – many of which will resonate with women, at all stages of their working life.
Each chapter starts with an in-depth look at the topic at hand – whether that’s planning the next steps in a career, or tips on public speaking – and it’s filled with facts and anecdotes that bring the topic alive. She interweaves this with her own personal stories, and she offers practical advice which is neatly summarised at the end of each chapter.

Peppered with pearls of wisdom from the likes of Hilary Clinton and George Eliot, this book feels like a pep-talk from your own personal career coach. It offers reassurance that you can achieve your goals and it leaves the reader feeling motivated, empowered and confident to reach their career potential.
