If you aren’t familiar with Alyssa, she was Obama’s Deputy Chief of Staff and is now one of the co-hosts of the Hysteria podcast (from Crooked Media). What I love about her is how she manages to be so incredibly accomplished and aspirational; while also being refreshing and relatable. Essays cover everything from her friendship with Monica Lewinsky, to IBS, to how Jennifer Aniston got her through a breakup. Her real message is that you can be successful, you can be a badass (and work for the president if that’s what you want!) while still being yourself. And that’s a message I think women of all ages could really benefit from… we need more of this! This book is a must-read for women of all ages.
