Professional reviews

"In this inspiring audiobook, narrator Eva Kaminsky's phrasing clarity and intentionality are so appealing that she comes close to overpowering this sometimes meandering lesson, but she never does. Instead, she provides a continuous supply of vocal tones and grace notes that help listeners stay tuned into this potpourri of personal stories and insights. The career transformations the author chronicles are based on interviews with more than 200 executives who describe finding success after being stuck in various ways in their careers. The author's insights and advice flow from these personal narratives, which together create a gently compelling vision of hope and untapped human potential. Kaminsky's outstanding reading will help listeners enjoy this audiobook. T.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
