Indra Nooyi is one of the world's foremost business visionaries and one of the only women to ever serve as chief executive officer of a Fortune 50 company. She is also a sought-after advisor to entrepreneurs, executives, and governments. As CEO and chairman of PepsiCo from 2006 to 2018, she was the chief architect of Performance with Purpose, PepsiCo's mission to deliver sustained growth by making more nutritious products, limiting the company's environmental footprint, and empowering its associates and people in the communities it serves.
With candour and good humour, Nooyi has written a wonderful book
that brings her story to life, from her early years in India,
surrounded by love and high expectations, to her determined efforts
to succeed in the corporate world, all the while questioning the
trade-offs she had to make. She reveals just how our society
continues to sacrifice talent instead of changing how we organize
work to maximize everyone's potential to live full and productive
lives. A must-read for working women and the men who work with us,
love us and support us. -- Hillary Rodham Clinton
Gritty, joyous, and visionary, Nooyi tells the story of an everyday person living an extraordinary life, leading beautifully and confidently from the front. A must-read for all. -- Ursula M. Burns, former chair and CEO of Xerox, author of Where You Are Is Not Who You Are
'CEO' and 'care' do not usually go together, but for Indra Nooyi, they always have. Rather than offering us a list of policy prescriptions, she shows us what is possible when businesses care about family and families have time to care for one another. -- Anne-Marie Slaughter, CEO of New America, author of Unfinished Business
We have so much to learn from Nooyi's remarkable story and wisdom on lifting up girls and women in the decades to come. She shares a great road map for anyone who aspires to merge social change with leading a large organization. -- Matt Damon, actor, screenwriter, producer
Nooyi's honesty, integrity, and humour shine through at every turn. Truly inspiring. -- Mindy Kaling, actor, writer, producer, director
An extraordinary window into the life, career, and family of a brilliant business strategist. A terrific addition to the story of American business. -- Brian Cornell, CEO of Target Corp.
An amazing read, filled with lessons, optimism, warmth, and heart, about an extraordinary woman who rose to be a fantastic role model for all women. -- Sofia Vergara, actor
