    1. I was interested in some of the broader aspects of this book: unconscious bias, management tips, and individual stories of awesome kick-arse businesswomen making it in their fields.But something about this book feels dated – even when references are made to the 2000’s, it seems to come through the lens of the 1980's. Nevertheless, it was eye-opening (if not always particularly educational) to read these interviews, and how women dealt with gender issues in the workplace. Please note, not all [...]

    2. Having read Sallie Krawcheck's 'Own It' prior to this, I was yearning for more examples of female executives and their stories of ascent in the business world -- ideally across a broad range of industries. Joann Lublin has delivered the jackpot here in 'Earning It.' She is very much a journalist (Wall Street Journal) and her 52 profiles featured here show a diversity of experience both on the way up a corporate ladder and at the top of senior management and in board positions. It was well worth [...]

    3. At this point in my career I am only just starting to understand and experience the obstacles women face in the corporate world. Obstacles that are never very obvious but are constantly present and never seem to affect men in the slightest. This book is a very welcome read and offers much advice that I have put into practice at work. This will be a book I will constantly return to, for practical advice and a source of motivation, as I find my own path in the corporate world. I hope that one day, [...]

    4. Timely topicsA must-read for both women and men in today's corporate environment. Joann gives many examples of how- to -succeed and why others didn't , in a succinct and thoughtful manner.The fact that so many female corporate executives were interviewed by her for the book is a testament to her as a seasoned reporter.I especially enjoyed her anecdotes about her career in perspective as well.Overall, a job well done !!

    5. Dated examplesIssues women had coming up in the 70s or 80s aren't the same ones as today. I felt the examples were dated and not relevant to my world.
