Carly Fiorina has never spoken publicly about crucial details of her time at Hewlett-Packard, about the mysterious circumstances of her firing, or about many other aspects of her landmark career. Until now. In this extraordinarily candid memoir, she reveals the private person behind the public persona. She shares her triumphs and failures, her deepest fears and most painful confrontations. This book goes beyond the caricature of the powerful woman executive to show who she really is and what the rest of us, male or female, in business or not, can learn from the tough choices she made along the way.
Praise for Tough Choices
"Fiorina wrote the book herself, without a ghostwriter, and it's well-written."
"A very engaging read. Chapters dealing with her meteoric rise through Lucent are excellent."
"Her prose is fluid and her voice is authentic. Ms. Fiorina has waited a long time to tell her story, and she does so memorably."
— The Wall Street Journal
"Ms. Fiorina is at her best when recounting the travails of a woman in male-dominated business culture. The woman that emerges from these pages is cultured, sensitive, and vulnerable, even as she acts tough."
