Rise: 3 Practical Steps for Advancing Your Career, Standing Out as a Leader, and Liking Your Life by Patty Azzarello

A straight-shooting Silicon Valley executive reveals insider career strategies to becoming a great leader, developing your network, succeeding without wasting time, and managing trade-offs between your work and life so your life works.

Patty Azzarello became the youngest general manager at Hewlett-Packard at age thirty-three, ran a $1 billion software business at thirty-five, and became a CEO at thirty-eight-all without turning into a self-centered, miserable jerk. In Rise, Azzarello shares the insider secrets to advancing your career (while having a life) in three practical steps:

- Do Better: Set ruthless priorities, and work and lead more strategically to deal with frustrating obstacles.
- Look Better: Build your credibility with the people who can help (or blacklist) you.
- Connect Better: Develop your network without being political. Get on "the List" of people who get the best opportunities

Whether you are just starting up the corporate ladder, stuck midcareer, transitioning, or eyeing the corner office, Rise shows you the difference between getting ahead and just working hard.

I really liked this book. I read a lot of business books, and most are 90% BS and 10% useful information. Not this one. This book blew me away - so much of what she says rings true, and it contains a lot of useful information to take my management career to the next level. Not just vague generalities, but specific, actionable items to move from line manager up the food chain.

This book is exactly what I needed at this point in my career.  I'm a middle manager wanting to rise.  Every page was valuable to me in some way.  I'm applying new things I learned every day and it's making a difference.  The future is bright.
