Publisher's Summary

Striving While Black is a personal reflection, a playbook and a portable mentor for African-Americans and others who didn't and don't have the advantage of trailblazers who have gone before them in forging a successful corporate career. Success in corporate America is based on not only what you know - but, as importantly, who you know and who will sponsor you, share information with you as well as advocate for you. This book shares in a straight talking manner what those who feel marginalized in corporate need to do for themselves to be seen as competitive and value added.

Excellent Read!!!

This book is an invaluable guide to those blacks, young and old, who striving for a successful career in any organization or field of endeavor, but especially in those where they are in the minority. I think any person who is an outsider can benefit from reading this book. Just substitute "female, or, latino, or gay, or non-Judeo Christian for black in the phrase "Striving While..." and it can help anybody. I only wish it were longer. I can't wait for the audio version of "Black Over White" to come out.
