With the rise of social media and the internet, it feels like there has been an exacerbation of underlying hostility among people who refuse to simmer down anytime soon. In this modern era, communication is critical to bridging relationships and reaching across the political spectrum that seems to have divided the general populace to extremes. Sally Susman is the Chief Corporate Affairs Officer at Pfizer, one of the world's leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. With Breaking Through, Susman provides valuable insights to help readers get the best out of conversations and use communication as a fundamental benchmark for success. You will learn to display clarity of vision while declaring unwavering intentionality, practice honesty in all aspects of your life, build a framework to navigate the unexpected challenges that come your way, use humor to foster workplace harmony, and much more.

Breaking Through gives you the tools and practices to help you find the best way to communicate and present yourself and your ideas to the outside world. This book is not just for corporate professionals or entrepreneurs but for people from all backgrounds and careers. Author Sally Susman uses personal anecdotes and shares her vast knowledge and experience to help you become the best version of yourself and thrive in your respective field. She reveals how difficult it was to come out in front of her parents in the mid-1980s and encourages readers to strive to be authentic about who they are and what they want. I found the book educational and inspiring but also surprisingly entertaining because of Susman's wit and humor. Highly recommended.
