Présentation de l'éditeur

Born exactly 100 years ago in 1914, the Year of the Tiger, the young Jeanne Mariette Thérèse Nguyễn Hữu Thị Lan was crowned queen of Vietnam upon her wedding to King Bảo Đại. During the previous 140 odd years of the Nguyễn dynasty in Vietnam, under the previous 12 kings, there had never been a queen while the king was still alive; the highest title that a living king’s wife could have was “Primary Imperial Concubine.” Nonetheless, Nguyễn Hữu Thị Lan and her “commoner” family were able to negotiate unprecedented marriage arrangements with the king and the royal family, as a result of which she was designated queen immediately after the wedding. Her royal moniker was Nam Phương Hoàng Hậu, meaning “Queen of Perfume from the South.”

For daring to marry a Buddhist king, Nam Phương was excommunicated by Pope Pius XI. Her negotiating strategies later resulted in a pardon by successor Pope Pius XII; her visit to the Vatican fascinated the European media. Nam Phương was a game-changer and did many “first” during her reign as queen. When King Bảo Đại abdicated his throne, Queen Nam Phương also became an ordinary citizen. After navigating the dangers of Vietnam’s war zones, contested by the military forces of four countries, she chose safety for her children and left the land of her birth to live out a quiet life in France.

Negotiating effectively is one of the essential keys to professional and personal success. That is one of the theses of Sheryl Sandberg’s 2013 best-selling book Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead. The concise and readable book, Lean In to be Queen, contributes an extraordinary negotiation blueprint from Asia, one worthy of a Hollywood movie: the true-life story of the last queen of Vietnam. This book is for all women – and men – who want to avoid common mistakes and increase their success in their own negotiations, whether at work, in business, or in their personal life.

(100% profits from this book will be given to women-empowering charities in Vietnam, millions of whom are “leaning in” everyday to survive basic problems including poverty, lack of education, and domestic violence.)

Loved the lessons on negotiations. Not only did the queen get what she bargained for in the long run, she was a trendsetter. To think she got a prenuptial agreement before prenups were even popular!

I enjoy learning about parts of history that you don't normally hear a lot about. Sure, the "big" historical touchstones are important and interesting, but there's so much more that you or I have no idea went on in the world.

Take Jeanne Mariette Thérèse Nguyễn Hữu Thị Lan, for example. She was the first woman to marry a king of Vietnam in 140 years, that rose above the title of "Primary Imperial Concubine", to "Queen", before the death of her husband. She was a very motivated and charismatic woman, that drew fascination and respect wherever she went.

While it is primarily a historical piece, there is a lot regarding women's empowerment, as well. She overcame the "hurdle" of being a woman in Vietnam, to be a powerful and important figure, that we - both women and men - can all learn something from today.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An absolute must-read 6 avril 2014
Par Meghan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Kim Do’s book, ‘Lean in Like a Queen’ is a highly important contribution to the world’s perception of Vietnam, and one that should eventually “free” the country from the almost singular global perception of it that mainly concerns the Vietnam War. The book shows us—nay, “charms” readers”—with the fascinating story about the country’s last queen, Nam Phuong—a story that perhaps equals that of other women leaders like Margaret Thatcher and Cory Aquino.

The book comprehensively tells the story of Nam Phuong’s ascent to Vietnam’s royal throne, and how her negotiating power led to many firsts in the Vietnamese royal court. But aside from providing an enlightening glimpse into that remarkable period in Vietnam’s history, most importantly, Kim Do’s carefully discussed “17 lessons”—gleaned from the life and times of the former queen—are powerful lessons in negotiation strategy and assertiveness that will help anyone to achieve personal success. So yes, this is some sort of a “self-help, achieve success” book—and it stands apart from the rest, thanks to Kim Do’s insightful, laser-focused discussion of what we can all learn from the remarkable Nam Phuong. What’s more, the queen’s story is deeply entertaining—it’s worthy of at least one Hollywood movie.

I can’t emphasize this enough: ‘Lean in like a Queen’ is a remarkable book—entertaining and life-changing, with the rare power to open our eyes with how to successfully engage in negotiations—after all, isn’t life a series of constant negotiation?—and emerge successfully from each one. Get a copy of this book today. It also makes a perfect gift for all the people you care about. A solid, well-deserved five-star rating for this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating story 6 avril 2014

As a retired schoolteacher and history buff, this book caught my attention. I don’t come across many books regarding Vietnam history and I know I haven’t come across one specifically discussing Vietnam’s royalty.

This was a truly delightful read about a fascinating woman. Nam Phương Hoàng Hậu’s name translates to “Queen of Perfume from the South. A beautiful name for a hauntingly captivating woman.

The author shares with us the fascinating details of Jeanne Mariette Thérèse Nguyễn Hữu Thị Lan‘s life (this was her name before she was crowned queen).

We also learn about the successes and failures of her negotiations which in turn shows us how to negotiate better.

Excellent book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 History books can be exciting (and thought provoking at the same time) 2 avril 2014
Par Vietnam and beyond - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a vivid account of the amazing story of Vietnam's last queen Nam Phuong seen from the point of view of a modern female author with keenly analytical yet highly refreshing mind. I am pretty sure this is the first time ever that Queen Nam Phuong's story is presented to us from a negotiation and woman empowerment perspective like this - and it makes exciting reading! History books should be written in similar manner if they want to attract modern readers.
The author herself is a shining example of how women can and should lean in. Well done job Kim!
And thank you for sending the book to me for free, as a gift. A very thought provoking gift indeed!
