This book is made from black people for black people, but it can be helpful to anyone, really. I’m an immigrant and could see many of the things they mention in the book apply to situations I’m involved in. And some of the chapters are pretty broad in the recommendations - like the tips for networking. Everyone needs networking, regardless of race or gender or anything. But the book also offers the perspective of understanding why and how some people have to work “twice as hard” (as the title suggest) in order to get the same pay / same respect / same outcome as other people. And even if you don’t face those challenges yourself it’s always important to have a good understanding of them to help stop this from happening in other instances. It doesn’t make sense that it happens, but also recognizing it happens can help stop the issue from becoming worse.
