Fight to Save Yahoo

(5) Marissa Mayer and the Fight to Save Yahoo!, by Nicholas Carlson

Marissa Mayer has been in the news a lot over the last few years after taking over as CEO at Yahoo. Nicholas Carlson has turned his famous article from 2013 into a book. What did Mayer do to rise in the tech world, which has long been dominated by men? Mayer had built the Google search engine paradigm and redesigned the customer-service products on the search engine giant. When Mayer wasn’t being promoted as quickly as her male colleagues, she interviewed at Yahoo, and got the job. This book is a great testimonial on how Mayer emerged as a major player when Yahoo needed to stay in the game, showing that business savvy women are valued at the top.
