Product description

From the Inside Flap

Betty Liu is famous the world over for asking the tough questions of today′s most successful people and for her uncanny ability to get straight answers where others have failed. As an award–winning financial journalist and Bloomberg Television anchor, Betty has sat down with billionaires, CEOs, politicians, and celebrities to get their views from the top.

Now, in Work Smarts, Betty helps you get to the top by distilling the wisdom of some of the most prominent CEOs in the country. Warren Buffett, Jamie Dimon, Elon Musk, Sam Zell, John Chambers, Anne Mulcahy, and many more spill the beans on what it really takes to be successful, giving practical, "from the street" advice on how to get ahead in your career.

Whether you′re just starting out in your career, bouncing back from a setback, angling to move up to the C–suite, or thinking about striking out on your own to pursue your dream, Work Smarts is a powerful source of insight, ideas, and inspiration you simply cannot afford to be without.

Packed with candid, often humorous, revelations from leaders in the world of finance, technology, retail, telecom, entertainment, and more, Work Smarts delivers priceless guidance on:

  • How to really network
  • The importance of being likable
  • What your boss is thinking when you ask for a raise
  • Winning every negotiation
  • Bouncing back from a firing or layoff
  • Thinking like a true entrepreneur
  • The secret skill every successful person needs
  • Overcoming fear
  • Balancing kids and career
  • Being a standout job candidate
  • Knowing what′s holding you back
  • Knowing what can propel you forward
  • Why sometimes being good at your job just isn′t enough

And you′ll even discover what the beverage of choice is among a majority of CEOs! (Hint: It′s carbonated and has zero calories.)

Combining the trademark, hands–on approach of one of today′s most respected financial journalists with the wisdom of the world′s most successful business leaders, Work Smarts is a gold mine of real–world insight and advice on how to get ahead in business and forge a career that maximizes all your best talents and skills.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Work Smarts

"In this superb book, one of the very smartest and respected financial anchors in the world shares valuable insights on corporate leadership what works and what to avoid. Clearly written, punchy and wonderfully humble, this terrific guidebook is a must–read for those looking for a new career, wishing to reinvigorate a challenged career, or build on past successes."
Mohamed El–Erian, CEO, PIMCO; Chair, President′s Global Development Council

"Betty has written a powerful, insightful book for anyone who has ever felt they needed an extra push in their careers. Packed with sharp advice, candid revelations, and funny, personal stories, Work Smarts is an essential book to have if you want to succeed."
Suzy Welch, author of 10–10–10; former Editor, Harvard Business Review

"Betty does it again with Work Smarts, a captivating story of her experiences interviewing CEOs and government officials from around the globe. Work Smarts is an invaluable aid for professionals seeking to organize their lives and careers for success. Rich with ′Lessons in Leadership′ from her illustrious journalistic career, Work Smarts is also highly motivational and informative. Thank you, Betty, for yet another exceptional learning experience!"
Dixon Doll, cofounder, DCM Venture Capital; past Chairman, U.S. National Venture Capital Association; board member, DIRECTV

"Easy conversation is always a miracle, especially when it is between a television host and her guest. But with Betty Liu it is always fun, easy, and interesting because she is fun, easy, and interesting."
Mort Zuckerman, Chairman, Boston Properties; Publisher, New York Daily News and U.S. News & World Report

"Betty has a phenomenal ability to coax important information out of the top people in business. She uses those skills in this great new book to get CEOs and other highly successful professionals to explain how they got to the top not just the things they did right, but the many things they did wrong. At a time when career ladders are broken and workers are expected to manage their own lifelong paths, Work Smarts is an invaluable and entertaining guide."
Dan Roth, Executive Editor, LinkedIn
