Description du produit

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.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Queen Nam Phương was a Vietnam"-azing person! @badwordplay 6 avril 2014

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.

I knew so little about the history of Vietnam that it came as a surprise to me that they had a monarchy. The story of the last queen was very interesting and shows that skillful negotiations can bring the desired result. This woman did not settle for being queen posthumously, she got the real deal, to be queen during her lifetime. She should be one of our heroines, thank you Kim for bringing her story to life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating story 6 avril 2014
Par Beverly Clark - Publié sur

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Loved the book 10 avril 2014

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!

If it's anything like its title, Lean in Like a Queen should be terrific. I just haven't gotten to it yet.

Download a sample. You just might love it.

What happened to that whole "lean in" thing?! It seemed pretty great.
