The author of this inspirational career guide is a black female managing director at a top Wall Street investment bank. And if that weren't enough, she's also a recording artist and gospel singer in her spare time. Carla A. Harris emphasizes developing your "authentic self" in the workplace, setting your career plan and taking responsibility for your professional advancement. She also tells a great personal story in this realistic, readily accessible book, summarizing her insights as "Carla's Pearls" at the end of each chapter. While her advice may ring familiar tones with most corporate veterans, Harris says her book is aimed at "women, women of color, and anyone (men, too) who desires to maximize their potential and claim their power in a professional environment." getAbstract wholeheartedly concurs and considers this worthwhile material, particularly for those who seek guidance and encouragement at the starts of their careers.

Overall, this was a great read and motivational book. I really respect Carla Harris and all of the trails she has paved for women in banking, finance, and in general, Corporate America. Many of the strategies she outlined in her book, were not necessarily new strategies (for me), but I tried to maintain an "outside the box" thinking when reading the book. I think that this book is awesome for young women who are starting their career, or even women who have been out of the workforce and ready to jump back in. My career is in Consulting, so I generally read lots of publications, motivational books, and career focused books on a monthly basis. However, I still gained a few new pearls for my toolkit. I would highly recommend this book for ALL women regardless if you are in Corporate America, education, healthcare, etc. We call always pick up new pearls of wisdom.

This is a must read book, very powerful and inspirational. The book will motivate your life. If you have been searching for a jump start for yourself then you must purchase and read "Expect To Win" today! Carla talks about her pearls which are lessons learned. My favorite is, in your professional career while climbing the corporate ladder "don't be afraid to ask your boss for what you want and expect it." I took that advice and was blessed behind it. I sincerely hope that 2009 brings you many blessings and "Expect To Win" read it today!
