A fascinating set of Black perspectives on what it takes to succeed today

In this updated and revised edition of Take a Lesson: Today's Black Achievers on How They Made It and What They Learned Along the Way, award-winning journalist and author Caroline Clarke once again compels a dynamic list of Black business heroes and role models to openly share their own goals, hits, and misses, exploring what they overcame and what they're still working to overcome, not just for themselves, but for their peers and would be peers, who the equity odds are still against.

In this book, you'll find:

  • Updated interviews with Black corporate titans containing critically important lessons about business success
  • Deeply personal accounts of the journeys of Black superachievers from a diverse set of backgrounds and industries who are still rising in their industries
  • Insights into the ways the world has changed--and the ways it hasn't--since the release of the first edition in 2001

Perfect for Black students and early-career professionals looking for proven ways to navigate the unique challenges they'll face, Take a Lesson is also a great resource for allies seeking to gain perspective on a critically important set of experiences.While these stories are specifically of Black success, their ability to inform, inspire, and reaffirm the value of ambition and perseverance, no matter the odds or era, transcends race.
