Over at Goodreads, U.K. safety manager Teresa Budworth gave Confessions five stars.
“This is the most insightful read on influencing skills since Cialdini. Wendy Delmater Thies found herself a single parent in New York and set out to become a safety engineer in the tough environment of that city’s rail and construction industries . Her memoir sets out how she overcame the technical challenges of high hazard work in densely populated neighbourhoods, negotiating the prejudice of co-workers and clients to deliver safe sites.
“It’s an inspirational read and not only for those sharing Wendy’s passion for ensuring their colleagues go home to their families at the end of the working day. Her perseverance in achieving safety qualifications whilst working full time and raising her children show us all what can be achieved with determination and good humour.
“I wish I could have read this book at the start of my working life.”
I’m humbled and honored she found it useful. Thanks, Teresa.
