This is a great book that lets you know what it's what it’s like to be a woman in tech: It’s fast paced - I feel for anyone would try to do the audio book. To do it justice, you’d have to do each chapter in one breath! I liked it because I used most of the software she worked on, so behind the scenes was fascinating. It also has some good advice for engineering and tells what it’s like to be a woman in tech.
