Being a woman can be hard, especially sometimes when they are working or out in public. Amplify: How to Grow Your Future and The Kickass Career You Love by Holly Chessman is a book that gives the reader tips, advice and personal stories from Holly Chessman who have been working with technology for more than 20 years.
At first glance when it is a book that talks about facts or are giving information, I would take a quick glance of what is inside the book. Holly Chessman’s book is not exactly a picture book but what she did was she made it so the pages are not overwhelming the readers with words. She would use bullets to make it more visually easier to process and get the main idea that she is trying to get across. Phrases would also be bolded to help the reader understand and remember the key points. Often time, even with those with pictures, the paragraphs can be overwhelming, especially with either word specific to a certain topic or when the explanation is long. The formatting was the favourite because it was easy to visually process and remember where things are because it is easy to find.
The topic itself is also something that should be noted. She is trying to help women feel more confident in themselves and by sharing her experience, it helps empower and encourage more women to try and pursue their dreams or jobs that may be more known as being male-dominated. The book gets the reader to think more about themselves and even though it may seem like it is something simple, however, having someone tell you that is different than having you tell yourself that. Whenever bits of advice or tips are given, an example will follow behind or was mentioned before it.
I would recommend this to others, more so to women who are thinking of going into the technology industry or any industry that is male-dominated. The book gets somewhat personal with the author because she mentions a lot of personal experiences and her favourite things like Doctor Who. For those who like non-fiction, business, building confidence and a bit of getting to know the author more, this would be a book that you might like.
