If you like career memoirs, business stories, or just personal life reflections, 'You Are the First You' is a good book with an interesting story about a woman making it in a predominately male 'industry'. If you're looking for a 'how to' book, this probably isn't the right fit. I probably went into it thinking it was going to be more of a how to, but I got a memoir, and that's absolutely fine because I love business stories, memoirs of personal experiences and feel you learn through others' experiences. But not everyone feels the same way. This is a great read, thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
