Terry Prone writes this book from her own perspective. At times you find it endearing and thought provoking and extremely interesting. There are 16 chapters in this book. Each chapter is titled with heading like “Advice to Babies", "Advice on Love", "Advice to Men" and” Advice on Fear". At the end of each chapter there is some quotes or a few word from business people, authors, journalist or politicians on advice they were given in relation to this topic. At times you find it quite funny and it also offers you some insight to other people’s thoughts.
For instance in chapter one titled "Timing Is Everything", she relates to others giving advice to you or in some instances you giving advice to others. She states that we all like to feel important and think that what we say is right. But she makes you think that sometimes having a little thought before you speak and asking specific questions before offering said advice might be a better idea.
Likewise in chapter seven with is aptly titled "Advice to Woman" she again focuses on the role modern woman now face. She makes known that ambitious woman are now still trying as hard to get to the powerful jobs in industry. That's not to say they are being held back by men, some have achieved Director Roles but it is still far from the amount it could be. What she points out is that sometimes woman put themselves down and listens to outsiders who should mind their own business. In fact she points out that many times it is ourselves who makes a big deal of having to take personal time off to deal with a family problem. She points out that you can only do so much and that you shouldn't put yourself down when things don't always go to plan.
This book is really like a conversation going on between friends. She is sharing from her own personal experience and brings others into the conversation by having people offering their own views at the end of each chapter. What she is really trying to get across is that you can achieve anything but don't be pressuring yourself to be it all. Sometimes you just need to live your life for yourself not for others. Each chapter of this book, offers you some advice with makes you think and at times it can be extremely funny but isn't that always what a good book should achieve.
