Read full description of the books Tough Choices: A Memoir:The first half of this book is totally inspiring. It's a great book on leadership, and one that anyone in business should read. It actually made me want to do my job better.
However, the second half of this book felt like "Carly's Defense". It seemed like she really felt the need to tell her side, and this book is the vehicle for it. It wasn't bad, per se, but it didn't go with the first half, and in some ways, it took away from the first half. It seemed awfully defensive, and wasn't so much about leadership as just the HP business itself.
I'm aware that in the same situation, I'd probably feel the need to defend myself, too, but I wish the first half had stopped at the point where it was still inspiring and encouraging and made me want to be a leader as well as just a good employee.
