Though directed to men predominantly, Athena Rising is a book for professional women as well. It tackles the myths and misconceptions surrounding the topic with a well-balanced mixture of advice, research, and copious examples from the military, government agencies and top corporations.
In particular, Johnson and Smith use no holds barred language that speaks directly to any man who is reluctant to work effectively with and see women succeed. They host the conversation about sexism, chivalry, stereotypes, and any temptations toward sexual attraction, but most importantly how mentoring women actually benefits a man's career. The authors make the topic a win-win scenario, and the lessons for women are equally pertinent with reminders to speak up, assert oneself, never become comfortable with second best nor shy away from a true challenge.
By the end of this book, readers will adopt Johnson's and Smith's mindset as they reframe any second thoughts about mentoring a woman in their organization. Listening to Athena Rising on Audible was pleasant and a good way to pass time during the morning or evening commute.
