Whatever your view may be, you will soon have the chance to find out Carly Fiorina's view. Today, it was announced that Fiorina will be working with Portfolio to create a memoir. It will include details on topics such as "what makes a leader [and] how women can thrive in business."
When published, we will all be able to read Fiorina's side of the story and, perhaps, gather a better understanding of why she left her post as CEO at such an elite company. In addition, we may pick up some Fiorina tips along the way.
