This hardcover first edition of Pretty Powerful: Appearance, Substance, and Success is autographed by Eboni Williams.
FOX News co-host and radio personality Eboni K. Williams believes that women shouldn’t hide their beauty. Instead, they should embrace it as a positive and powerful asset.
Williams describes how her own career has been positively influenced by making strategic and intentional decisions about her appearance, what works best and when, all while staying true to her own personal style and values. Regardless of the decade, whether they were entering the workforce, seeking a leadership role, or looking to ascend to the C-suite, women (and even men) have always felt the professional need to embody a certain aesthetic appeal and individual personal power. Women, especially, have been sold the lie that being “pretty” comes at the expense of being taken seriously and that being “pretty” and being capable are mutually exclusive. In PRETTY POWERFUL, Eboni K. Williams encourages readers to reject the knee-jerk reaction to be shamed by this potential advantage and to stop leaving this incredibly powerful asset unused.
In each chapter, Williams is joined by other powerful women like Meghan McCain, Marcia Clark, and Desiree Rogers and explores how many others have learned to balance their “prettiness” with substance—to both look the part and express their intelligence in a way that is authentic and respected. While opinions may have differed through time, one fact remains: a personal “pretty” brand is perhaps the most immediate and obvious tool in a woman’s professional arsenal.

This book is nothing short of amazing!! As a father of two daughters and someone trying to make it in media.. I could really relate to this book. It made me think more about how women are viewed in the workplace and made me admire the strength they have to display on a daily basis. Eboni did a wonderful job of telling stories about different women who effected her life. Everyone who has a daughter should have a copy of this book! I'm going to buy more copies and give them to young women of color and young entrepreneurs to show them that they too can make it! -Tyler Butler
An amazing read that is well put together and easy to digest. The topics covered are deeper and more substantial than I had anticipated. Eboni K. Williams shows herself to be a well-thought role model and a formidable professional ally. -Elisabeth P.
