The front cover of this book says that Karren Brady is an inspiration to women but I think that is an understatement. Men as well as women can learn from the ambitious, driven and tenacious nature of Brady who fought against the restriction placed on her to become one of Britains leading businesswomen. I really enjoyed the mix of Brady's life story with her manifesto for women's rights and her 'How to Suceed' pointers. Certainly a role model for women but as much a inspiration to ALL aspiring bu [...]

Without discounting her very successful career within a male dominated environment, I wasn’t particularly inspired by her advice to women which mainly was her reiteration that she doesn’t. stop. working. ever. Yes, women can be hardworking and highly successful within business but hers is at the extreme; at the cost of minimal maternity leave, on her health, and complete lack of social life. This certainly isn’t desirable in my eyes as a good work life balance even when you’re striving f [...]

What a brilliantly inspiring book. This book summarises the life of Karren Brady written in her own words. It focuses mainly on the career side of her life and how she has worked her way to the top. She has such unnerving sheer determination which caused a spark to be ignited within myself to work even harder towards my dream goals. Some people have criticised her for being ruthless and work-driven; but at the end of the day she has a loving supportive family as well as a strong career and she i [...]

An absolute inspiration. What an incredible woman. She has achieved so much and should be an idol to young people everywhere. This is actually the first autobiography I have read, I found some of it tailored towards women however as a male professional still found it applicable. A must read!

Waste of time waste of money I know Karen from watching The Apprentice and I didn't know anything about her until I partially read this book (I just couldn't finish it). Not only that the book is poorly written but the way she's telling her life story made me loose any respect I had for her. There is a vast contradiction between what she said in The Apprentice (I've watched all the seasons) and what she is saying in the book. The language varies from academic to inappropriate making me wondering [...]

+ There was a good balance between business and Karren Brady's personal life+ I learned a lot about business and especially behind the scenes of football clubs + I loved how honest this book was and how much Karren advocates for women in business - For a book that is short, for some reason it felt very long to me- There was a lot of repetition when it came to tips or explaining how the business industry works

Not really for me, this one. She's a strong woman alright but I didn't find anything new or particularly inspiring in its pages. Was hoping to get some interesting takeaway nuggets, but didn't. Perhaps I've read too many business books and was looking for something new. Can't help admiring her achievements, but it just didn't sit right with me. On the plus side, it's such a straight talking, easy read that you'll zip through it even if you're time poor.

This reads a little like a personal diary at times and it was all a bit gung-ho for me at the start but by the end I had quite warmed to Brady, learning a lot about and admiring her stand for women and equality. Nice to get a peek behind the face we see on The Apprentice.

A great read but more of an autobiography than a personal development book or 'how to' guide which I'd have preferred. Karren Brady has had some amazing achievements and has really embraced her femininity and family values which is important in breaking through the glass ceiling. Worth a read if you love autobiographies!

I found this book really inspiring and I hardly read autobiographies. It was recommended from a friend and not only brought out the feminist in me but I managed to get a new job whilst reading it! Thank you Karen.

Good but far too shortShe summarises the 10 rules in a page of so. I read the entire book in 25 minutes, including making notes. You would be far better off just buying a full book which would include all these points and more.

First and foremost, I must say that I purchased the book at a bizarre juncture in life. Like Brady, I see myself as a serious and hardworking professional (albeit in the public sector sphere so I am not financially or profit driven) but unlike Brady I’ve been a bit despondent with my career of late and I’ve found that the constant workload and hours I put in are more than a little burdensome on the work/life balance.The goal of reading Brady’s book therefore was to help myself regain my pe [...]

Karren knows how to give things to you, completely honest and straight-forward. As she says, 'I don't sugar coat it' and for sure, she doesn't. In today's society, women are hushed and expected to stay hushed; doing the laundry, fetching the kids from school and cooking for when the breadwinner arrives home from a hard day's work. Us women can also go out and do what the men do, and what men can't do - I say - woman can surely try and do it better.I initially bought this book as a second option [...]

I actually really enjoyed this book. Not too taxing. Written in a very readable way. I'm not a big fan of Karren Brady per se but thought it would be interesting to get some background to her success. It's refreshing for someone to be so straight forward and honest. We can all achieve. We're all equal - men, women, university educated, state school, boarding school - but the thing I found most refreshing was her straight forward manner with regard to women/children/careers. The 'original feminis [...]

I think that this book was very helpful for many reason. Firstly because it is very genuine and personal as many of the rules that Karren states in this book and the way she explains them really appealed to me and I realised that I could take something away from that and use it in life especially because she uses many examples throughout the book which can be applied to day to day life and it made me think about it and I realized that I do those things and should use the rule she is stating to f [...]

Cross posted from my blog, Lily ActuallyI really enjoyed this book - Karren is very down-to-earth all the way through, and really doesn't take herself too seriously but without being self-deprecating. She's open about her mistakes and also about her successes, which I found very refreshing. I'm yet to read Lean In, but this feels less aggressive than I've heard that book is - anyone who has read them both is very welcome to correct me though!At the end of the book are a series of rules and thoug [...]

I whizzed through Karren's book. After my first sitting I was determined to quit my current job, get a role at my local premiership rugby club and work my way up to the top, just like Karren, my hero! My resolve lessened as the book went on, as I realised just how much work she does, and how I'm probably not quite as determined as she is/wasShe talks candidly about her rise to the top, and how she has stayed there and went into a lot of detail about how she has juggled her family life with her w [...]

I did like this book but it made me realise that I'm not the business woman type. I agreed with many of her points about working mothers but I just don't have enough passion in anything to dedicate that much effort to it. Don't get me wrong I love my job but spending three month away from my family to observe candidates on the Apprentice would not only do my head in but question is it all really worth it.I also don't always believe you can be nice and get on in the business world.I would love to [...]

She's so inspiring! ♥As a student who has lost most of their motivation with results day coming up, Brady really makes you think of the bigger picture. Prior to reading, I only thought of this lady as 'the woman off The Apprentice', but she is so much more! After reading all that she has done for football and various companies, it just makes you realise how much you can achieve when you're diligent and determined!Seriously, if you're needing a kick up the arse to get stuff done, this book did [...]

Great book with some great phrases and theories. Being a woman in business, many parts of it reflect my own experiences of juggling many balls in the air at once but being prepared to work many more hours than most to achieve success. Great book, anyone male or female wanting to run a business or is already doing so, should read this book. It really describes the hours, pressures and hard work that is involved, when so many people are of the opinion that having a business is easy. It most certai [...]

I really enjoyed this book. I admire Karren Brady for her success in the male oriented world and I wanted to find out more about what makes her tick. This book didn't disappoint and I found my admiration increasing. The book combines insights both into her personal and business lives, with suggestions on how to improve your own chances of success. The lady takes no prisoners, but she does it oh so well!

I finished this book yesterday and I think it it brilliant.It is a short guide how to organise yourself and run after your dreams and goals. Karren Brady is not a writer and I think that's why the book is very simple and easy to read. If you are an ambitious person who follows their dreams, this book is for you.I personally really enjoyed it. It inspired me and made my beliefs in independent women even stronger.

Really inspiring book for any woman in business.With great enthusiasm Karren encourages woman to be strong in a male dominated world, talking the reader through her experiences as Chairman of Birmingham City, how to be taken seriously in the workplace and how the medias sexism just spurred her on to be a great business woman.

What you see is what you get. I love the candid honesty of Karren Brady. She is a real champion for women; not at all bossy, arrogant or insensitive, Karren unselfishly shares the secrets of her success with one aim in mind: to liberate and encourage other women to be successful. Thank you Karren, you're a star!

I would actually give this book 3.5 stars. It was an easy and enjoyable read about how Karren Brady built herself up to be a brilliant business woman. I like her honesty and her inspirational advice on how to be not only a strong business woman but how to balance the hard working lifestyle alongside motherhood. She shows that it can be done, and that it should be done more often.

Interesting. In a nut shell- work a hundred Hour week and don't care what anyone says. Good, but a bit preachy towards the end. How did she find the time? See abovedid I mention how desperately disappointing it is that she is a conservative? And what is that the Conservatives want to conserve? Harriett Harmon- Karen Brady needs you

Karren really is an inspirational business woman. In this book she shows that with grit, determination and a winning personality anyone (female or male) can succeed in business.I really enjoyed her writing style and at times felt as though she was talking directly to me. I can't wait to start putting some of her advice in to practice!
