 Carly Fiorina Reviews Her Career, and We Review Her Book - Knowledge@Wharton
Unfortunately, Fiorina fails to use her insight to reconcile this near-triumphant account of her controversial tenure with the widespread belief that it was a disaster.
Fiorina was harassed, insulted and propositioned, mostly early on in her career, but from these experiences she culls some sound advice -- you have 20 minutes to prove you know what you're talking about -- and even a bit of wisdom: "Life isn't always fair, and it is different for women than for men."
Fiorina makes her final mistakes, allowing Keyworth a more active role on and off the board and allowing Tom Perkins to become a board member; both men were active in her dismissal.

 TomBomb.Com: Carly Fiorina's HP Legacy
That this little fiasco took a year to play out guaranteed that Fiorina would be far enough from the blast zone to point at the smoking crater and be able to claim, not that she helped set the process in motion but that she was the first victim of this evil cabal.
Fiorina may claim now that HP's current strong business is the product of her strategy — a dubious claim in itself — but the fact is that the first requirement of corporate leadership is to get the employees to follow.
Finally, if Fiorina was fired by a conspiracy of her board of directors, as she claims, it was a conspiracy led by her own mentor at the company, Dick Hackborn, who had convinced HP to hire her and had formerly been her greatest champion.

 Good riddance, Carly Fiorina! - By Daniel Gross - Slate Magazine
Fiorina, the ultimate saleswoman, failed to close the deal with her most important accounts: investors and the board of directors.
For Fiorina, a marketing whiz at Lucent in the go-go 1990s, the CEO job was all about sales—selling employees on the merger with Compaq, customers on the products, investors on the stock, the board on her strategy, and the media on her.
Ultimately, what made Fiorina such a media darling may have made her ill-fitted to be the CEO of HP in an environment of slow growth and relentless cost competition.

 MercuryNews.com | 10/05/2006 | Carly Fiorina back in spotlight
When Carly Fiorina took the helm of Hewlett-Packard as chief executive in 1999, HP's board was dysfunctional, riven by animosities, and passive-aggressive, according to Fiorina's new book ``Tough Choices,'' (Portfolio/Penguin Group) which will be released Monday.
Fiorina suggests that Perkins and Keyworth colluded to get the board to remove her when she dismissed their suggestions to condense HP into two big business groups and put Shane Robison, HP's chief strategy and technology officer, in charge of one of them.
Fiorina said that Sonsini concluded two or three directors were leaking to the press and that Perkins admitted to being a ``second source.'' (In his documents submitted to Congress for hearings on the HP scandal, Sonsini said he did not find the leaker).

Carleton S. Fiorina's fall from grace was dramatic, as was most of her career.
From early in her six-year reign, Carly's mendacity was breathtaking, as she methodically eviscerated HP of everything the company once stood for.
Even as Carly's script for HP ran into harsher realities, even as Boxer retained her seat, the story never really died.
