There's no shortage of career advice available to ambitious women. Between turning to trusted co-workers for guidance, listening to motivating podcasts, and reading encouraging stories about successful entrepreneurs, there's plenty of advice to consider. And that's not even including the countless best-selling career books to choose from on Amazon. When scrolling through so many options, how do you determine which ones are actually worth your time?

Because we believe the best reading recommendations come from real women who've actually put the advice on their pages to the test, we asked the smart, ambitious, and insightful members of our Womaneers Facebook Group to share the books that really helped them get ahead in their careers.

Ahead are 11 life-altering career books that MyDomaine readers recommend to every enterprising reader.
