Machiavelli for Women AudioBook Summary
From the NPR host of The Indicator and correspondent for Planet Money comes an “accessible, funny, clear-eyed, and practical” (Sarah Knight, New York Times best-selling author) guide for how women can apply the principles of 16th-century philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli to their work lives and finally shatter the glass ceiling – perfect for fans of Feminist Fight Club, Lean In, and Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office.

And the number of female CEOs for Fortune 500 companies has actually been declining.
