At the Working Mother Multicultural Conference (POWER: OWN IT. USE IT. SHARE IT.), I skipped the morning of the 2nd day to play with my nephew, but I made it just in time to hear Chin-Ning Chu, author of the new book The Art of War for Women – Sun Tzu’s Ancient Strategies and Wisdom for Winning at Work. I am glad I did!
Deutsche Bank was the sponsor for that event so we all got a free signed copy of her book! Amazing, right? I started reading it on my return flight home and sadly, hers was the book I left in the back seat pocket in front of me after arriving 3 hours late around midnight. As I mentioned, I called Delta Airlines Lost and Found a few times and guess what? They NEVER returned my phone call even just to tell me they had not found it. I guess what they say about the airlines is true..’customer service? what’s that?’ Sigh.
So I ended up buying it from Amazon and it just came in the mail this weekend. I was hoping to have been able to read the book before doing this post, but this post is next in line. I’m already optimistic that it will be a great book though! I will update this post later for any insights I gain. You can buy her book by clicking on the Amazon link below and if you do we’ll get a small piece of the transaction pie.
Based on her presentation, Chin-ning struck me as a very intelligent, insightful, and humorous speaker who was comfortable with her inablity to speak proper English! Thanks to her editors, she joked about how if she, who writes and speaks broken English, can be a best selling author then we could do anything we set our minds to.
