Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

"How did this happen?" asks the author after working at Xerox for 29 years and becoming the first Black female CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Having been raised by a poor, single immigrant mother in lower Manhattan didn't keep her from earning a graduate engineering degree and going on to lead an international business through turbulent economic times. Burns's narration is as powerful as her record of achievement. Her blunt opinions about business and culture sound confident but not domineering; her resonant tone and assertive pacing are calming--the voice of someone who will always speak the truth, seek the truth, and do the right thing. These qualities and her stories of life in the big leagues of business make this audio one to be savored. T.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
