In Pretty Powerful: Appearance, Substance, and Success, Eboni K. Williams encourages and empowers every woman to develop all of her strengths and flaunt all of her assets—feminist and feminine—without apology.
Part memoir, part manifesto, Pretty Powerful interweaves stories from Eboni’s family history, childhood, and career path with insights from dynamic women in law, politics, the media, and business who have found their own way of merging style with clout.
Well written book!
I loved this book! I absolutely loved all of the insight that was contributed to this book, as well. I work an engineer, which is a completely male dominated industry, so all of the content was even more applicable to my life. This book was so well written and never became “boring”. I love this book and highly recommend it to all career women and even men to read!
This book is pretty powerful
This book is intended to speak directly to women. But as a man, I can tell you it speaks to everyone. There are lessons here anyone can apply to their life. Beyond that, it also forced me to evaluate the conditions under which I judge women, both fair and unfair. Cliche as it may be to say, but I gotta say it anyway... this book is pretty powerful for sure.
Must read for women navigating the working world
This book is a must read for women navigating the complexities of the working world. Whether we like to admit it or not, women are heavily judged on their appearance. This book is not a tool to reinforce that only pretty people can be successful, instead it gives insight and guidelines how to play the game of putting your best foot forward. I liked that she interviewed powerful women whose appearance was highly scrutinized. To my knowledge, I haven't come across a book with such a subject matter, and I am pleasantly surprised how much I liked it and how much knowledge I can use in my everyday life!
