Any additional comments?
The first half of this book offers great recommendations that could apply to any workplace, but the second half is dedicated to specific recommendations for large corporate workplaces. This might cause you to lose engagement if you don't work in that type of environment, but it was still fairly interesting. The quality of the first half of the book alone makes this one worthwhile.
I think this audiobook would have benefited from a professional reader or from more editing, as the reader (the author) stumbled over her own words at times and was a little unclear at times.

I listened to this via audio and then bought the hard copy for reference. Kim does an awesome job of iterating and reiterating key points to managing people, work relationships and yourself to achieve success. Her frank style with lots of examples were clear and easy to comprehend. There are new concepts woven in with more classic ones and ones that are probably in your head as common sense, but in a way that feels very actionable. I will listen to this again.

I own hundreds of business books, from those rooted in economics and science, classics like Napoleon Hill/7xHabits/BlueOcean strategy, magazines like the economist/HBR/Forbes and a host of other interesting and thought provoking titles covering teams, strategy and management. As a relatively young CEO I'm always on the lookout for new knowledge, models and innovative strategies.
It's fair to say that a when I read many books I find myself thinking "yep" "obvious" "fine" a and the obvious question - how? How do I do this? How is his relevant?
Without going into the details, this is one of very few books where rather than answer with implausible scenarios or motivational ideals (e.g. Realize your dreams) - this book kind of serves as a literary mentor. It's real world and *convincing* examples - because they're real - do far more to help you learn and improve than any reference material or evangelistic title ever would.
Overall - this book is excellent. Evidenced by the fact that I rarely offer reviews but this was truly excellent. If mentoring is possible through an audiobook, this is it.

Wether in tech, design, development... or not at all, you should find something useful from this book, especially if you manage people. Even if you don't manage directly, radical candor is something anyone could apply and benefit from!

This book completely sums up the frustrations I’ve felt having boss’ who were not great managers and highlights the best practices to make me a better manager. It has also helped me get a clearer understanding of my growth plan and others plans in my workplace as well
