A story of success of successful entrepreneurship against the odds to inspire fellow business women. ‘Swimming On My Own (The Business Case For Kindness And Equality)’ by Susie Warran-Smith is an insightful read. Exploring the author’s career path through the sexist and misogynistic workplace of 1960s Britain and the limited changes in the modern workplace that spurred her to set up her own accounting business, which was then sold five years later in a multi-million pound deal. A memoir with social commentary and words of wisdom from her own experiences, Warran-Smith details how she became a successful founder of a company that made her a multi-millionaire in her fifties. Filled with humour and honesty, this book is sharp and witty as it points out the discrepancies between male and female treatment in the workplace. Using comments and experiences of other prominent women in business and politics, statistics and research to demonstrate the systematic and structural problems both the workplace and society has with sexism. Through the author’s own experiences it is proved that the “traditional” way is not necessarily the only way to succeed. Written in a tone that is accessible and unpatronising, this book is a celebration of success that offers words of wisdom. This could be an inspiration to women in work everywhere, showing that there are opportunities for a kinder and more equal future.
