1-0 out of 5 stars I'd rather be nice.
I would much rather be considered nice and earn my way through this world the way I am.Being myself in the business arena has worked well for me thus far, and I don't care if the trend is to deviate from feminity.I think we should respect everyone, and not propegate the evolution of a sexless society.All in all, I would much rather be a nice person and have people like me than be a b%tch with a nice office.People remember you by how you made them feel, not by how much money or power you had.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ever wonder how you appear to others?
This book was amazing!It really made me see how I appeared to others.Some thing that I have been doing that I thought helped me has most likely been why I haven't been more successful.What an eye opener!

5-0 out of 5 stars Loved it!
Excellent book for business women. I am using all the techniquees, it works!

5-0 out of 5 stars What every woman should know!
I read about this book - actually, I consider it a textbook - when searching for tools on expanding my career. I usually wouldn't buy something like this, and instead look for similar information from free 'Net sources. But on a whim, I bought it, and am so glad I did. I'm not even halfway through and what I've learned already has helped me to speak and express myself in a way that gets people's attention, and has improved my professional image. One of the best tips, which comes early in the book, is catching myself using the "I think/like/don't like" phrase when I want to discuss facts. I do it, so I don't look like a know-it-all. Dr. Mindell, however, shows several ways to express facts without appearing as though I have all the answers.
5-0 out of 5 stars Review by the Business Librarians of the Carnegie Library, Pittsburgh
The lights go down. The speaker strides confidently towards the podium, pauses and makes eye contact with the audience. And from the very first moment you know, instinctively, that it's going to be an excellent presentation. An experience like this reinforces your desire to create your own unique aura of self-confidence. What can you do to make this happen?
3-0 out of 5 stars Not Helpful
I bought this book at a womens' leadership conference a couple of years ago.I read it cover-to-cover and decided to try the skills covered when communicating in my office.My supervisors' opinions of me changed drastically - they began to view me as surly and defiant.I didn't think any of the verbage alternatives were rude, but in the organization where I was working, the higher-ups expected you to consider them omnipotent and not have an opinion of your own.Ultimately one should consider their audience and adjust their language accordingly. ...

Editorial Review

The fact that there are few women occupying top-level positions in corporate America has, for a long time, been blamed on a ubiquitous "glass ceiling." But according to Gail Evans, this is a tired myth implying a woman is a "person-who's-done-to instead of a person-who's-doing." In Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Women's Guidebook
Gail Evans really hits it on the head with this book. Having been a woman in business for almost 20 years, I wish I had read this when I was 20.A must read for any woman working in the business world, even if only to "understand" the mindset of men which will help you to make better decisions and choices.Just understanding how a man is thinking about you in "business" can help you be more successful and empowered.
5-0 out of 5 stars FABULOUS!
Gail Evans is amazing.She really knows what she is talking about!I refer to this book often in my career.Really helps me to feel good about decisions and not second guess myself.I tell everyone about it and have even given it as gifts to those that are starting out in their careers and those I see struggling in the workplace.Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Women's rules of business engagement
One of the most helpful books for women in corporate world.Unwritten rules of business engagement every woman should know if she wants to be successful in business.This book outlines differences in perception of men and women in today's working environment.Main take for all women is: do not dress sexy - you will loose credibility, or scare away devoted family men, know your place at the meetings (do not hide, find a visible place to sit, be seen and be heard), have manners (men can get away without it, women cannot), avoid having love affairs, or participating in any type of sexual inuendo while at work - it will hurt your career, know the meaning of "yes" (move on) and "no" (try again, later) in business world, do not let your frugality get in the way of presenting yourself to the staff you manage, vendors you collaborate with and peers who opt for posh office furniture and carpeting, your office space does matter do not settle for less.List goes on and on.The most interesting part of the book is classification of women labor prototype: Daughter, Mother, Wife and Mistress role.If you know your (male) boss' perception of you, you should definitely know what your next career step needs to be.As you move on professionally, do not attempt to assume the same role - you will end up typecasting yourself.Must read for every person in the workplace. ...

This book points out a lot of things women might be aware of but don't really think about.It really changed my perspective and the whole office politic games.I bought this book are a couple of women friends in management and would recommend this to anyone in a supervisor position.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good guidance for Women
Working in a male-dominated company in a male-dominated field (sales) I had noticed some of the behaviors mentioned in this book. However, "Hardball" gave me insight into WHY I saw these behaviors and how to deal with them. The book is getting a little dated (the power suit/skirt is out, the power suit with slacks is the choice of women executives these days) but still very good information. You must keep in mind that not ALL men think this way - as with all generalizations you have to keep flexible and adapt to the situation. A must read for any woman who is mystified by the behaviors she sees around her and wants to move up in the corporate world. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I have financially benefited from this book
I read this book 2 years ago and it solidified my view that negotiation was something I had to do more of. While the first half of the book was a little depressing to read, the advice in the second half on what to do about it was inspiring. I personally took solace in the fact that I didn't have to change my personality to ask for and get what I wanted.
4-0 out of 5 stars A book every woman should read.
This is a very important book for all women.It reveals how women have put themselves in positions of disadvantage, by basically not sticking up for ourselves, devaluing our worth, and just not asking for what we deserve.This book, although not always the snappiest read, is full of interesting statistics and studies.It is life-changing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
If your a woman, even if you aren't in the business world, this is a book you need to read.It is unbelievably fasinating....and depressing because of how true it is.Women just weren't raised to see the things they are missing to get not just by, but get what they deserve, in the world and this book really hits home and give you great ways to see what you can do about it.It's just a new perspective and an increbile read and will definitly change your life, and your bank account, for the better.It'll change the way you live and see your everyday life.From the way you raise your kids to the way to deciding where to go on vacation.Definitly a book that needs to be read, by men and read, if you want to make a difference for the women of the future. ...

Editorial Review

All of us, from birth onward, learn by emulating others. Yet when it comes to our professional lives, we often forget that what we see, we imitate, and what we imitate, we become. This is obviously a positive thing for those who have found successful, encouraging mentors in their fields, but finding those mentors is still much easier for men than for women. In Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Advice Helpful to Women at All Stages of Career
I bought the book "Be Your Own Mentor" during a transitional time in my career. The advice offered has provided me with many great ideas on advancing my career. I thought the get ahead basics were especially helpful. As I was looking for a new position, the job search advice helped me to form opinions on how this new position could be a stepping stone to my future. It urged me to take a look at my career as a progression of jobs on my resume.Additionally, Sheila Wllington offered advice that I had not read in traditional job search books. I think this book is helpful to women at all stages of their career whether just starting out or ready for a mid-career change. If you think you need some advice from successful women and need some ideas on how to further your career I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for women in business
I wish this book had been around when I was just starting out in business. I would be a lot better off today if I had gotten the great advice it gives out.Much of the writing is based on research done at Catalyst, so is fact-based.Shelia Wellington uses her vast experience and connections to give a road map for success for women in the business world.Many nuggets of advice from women who have reached the highest levels in their careers.A must read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Put "personal publicity" on your mentoring agenda!
Being your own mentor is a critical concept and certainly includes mastering the art of networking. But a good self-mentoring plan must also include achieving corporate and community visibility. To really take charge of your career there is no substitute for creating a strategic 'personal' publicity plan. Your boss won't do it, and neither will your mentor. It is up to YOU. People have to know who you are, what you stand for, and why they should hire you, promote you, or do business with you. That's really taking charge of your career. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Food for daily thought and well worth your purchase
Vickie is amazing. Her story is amazing. She writes her book from the other side of accomplishment of fears, heartbreak, dissappointment, etc. There are great ideas to take with you on your journey of success and you should bring your highlighter so you can refer back to some great words of encouragement along your way. I have thouroughly enjoyed this book and I plan to share it with my women friends. We all can use a little push.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and follow the thought process.
Milazzo explains how passion emerges and evolves and gives excellent real-life examples of women who became successful by using ideas in this book. This book is filled with excellent advice gained from experience. As Vickie says, she doesn't need a blow dryer to ride a camel and sleep in the Sahara desert. You have to love a woman who is beyond adventurous, has conquered fear and is willing to share her life and wisdom with the world. There is great advice about how to avoid distractions and a wise approach to developing daily rituals to nurture our spirits. Successful women respect the complexity of any chosen path and become students for life.The book is easy to read and follow the thought process.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Outstanding!
I have known of Vickie for several years since I had worked as a legal nurse consultant myself.For a variety of reasons, my heart just wasn't into it.I was good at it, but just didn't want to deal with the egos and power plays of attorneys.I wasn't "passionate" about legal nurse consulting.

I have to say, I felt pretty disgusted with myself, having to pretend to be insecure and self-depreciating, just to get other women to like me. But by God it works.
5-0 out of 5 stars Women Working Wisely
This book has been an invaluable reference and resource for me.Pat Heim's experience in addressing relationally aggressive behaviors between women in the workplace shows through in every page she writes.With "In the Company of Women" she adds one more feather to her impressive cap and advances each reader's understanding of this important issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Valuable and authoritative information
This book was recommended to me by a friend and I thank her very much.The authors have described processes that explain what I have observed, but couldn't quite understand, until reading this book.Why women have an incredible memory for hurts and injustices; why women can be so 'catty' amongst themselves; why women can talk so intimately and so easily with each other and with men... I could go on and on with the questions I've always had about women.Learning about the 'tend and befriend' hormone and about the Darwinian survival characteristics of many of these behaviors helps men (as well as women) understand and not personalize these inherent patterns.I especially appreciated the research citations and the sound scientific foundations of the authors' conclusions.I have recommended this book to a dozen people I know, and I think it's a worthwhile read for any adult who works with, is in a relationship with, or is a woman - and I guess that's everyone. ...

I thought when I first look at this book it was for business women. I could not have been more wrong. This book offers useful information that every woman can use in her every day life-- how to negotiate, not only with your boss but with your husband, your children and with the President of the local PTA. I find by using the techniques in the book I get more of what I want more often.

This book has a lot of suggestions for how women can be more effective negotiators. However, if you're looking for a book to read I found Women Don't Ask by Linda Babcock to be much more insightful and a much better read.

I thought this book was a great read, based on the power of the statistics alone.Lots of great information about profitable women- owned businesses, as well as hearing the stories from the women who made it themselves.

I absolutely loved this book! When I originally read Stanley's Millionare Next Door, I was put off that all the data was regarding men (but that it is still a very good book). I was suprised to stumble on this book and am very glad that I did!

5-0 out of 5 stars We can all learn from each other....
I loved this book, being a new mom I love to hear experiences from seasoned moms and new moms alike. This book was not what I expected, which was a good thing, I thought it would be working moms bashing stay at home moms and vice versa and that's not what I got from the book at all. I think we all need to respect each others decisions and learn from each other and do whats best for us and our own family. Definitely recommend this book for all moms!

I got through about 6 of these essays when I decided to flip through the book and read the biography of the authors since it was all starting to sound the same.All of these women are writers!!How is this a good sampling of real women?These are women with careers that can be translated into part time work through free lance.And it is difficult to feel the struggle of the women that have full time babysitters when they are "stay at home" moms.I am a working mom in a technical field where it very difficult to take off years and then go back to the work force or do anything part time.It would have been nice to hear the voices of people in similar situations.

3-0 out of 5 stars Limited to a Few Moms
Let me state up front that I have really enjoyed this book.The essays are very interesting to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly valuable book, even if you're not a self-help type
I was just out of college when my friend's mother gave me this book.My friend and I rolled our eyes - we were *definitely* not self-help-book readers.I still am not.But many times over the past ten years I have referenced this book in conversations with friends. I have found myself applying many of the tips that Ms. White provides. You don't have to be a hyper-ambitious, ladder-climbing corporate professional to get something out of this book. Among the tenets that have stood out to me over the years are:
4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed, learned but read it all with a grain of salt!
I have never believed, or wanted to believe, in the feminist views of the world. I like to believe that if we focus on results, deliverables, and excellent performance and good merit, we will indeed get ahead - man or woman - in corporate america. Reading this book however did have certain advice in handling some situations that only arise for women in the workplace. Not every bit of advice or circumstance applies to all of us, but overall, this was a very good read, I took bits and pieces of advice from Kate and really did enjoy her stories and her candid sharing of the experience she had been through. I really do recommend it to everyone - not just women. It's good to be aware of our ingrained beliefs and learn to let go of them and face life with a much more open mind.

5-0 out of 5 stars People Pleasing is not the way to go
This is the golden advice: people pleasing is distinct from delivering credible results. In the world of world it is being respected that wins the day. Being liked is a matter of fickleness and not based on results. Results that are measured are all that matters. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Still Relevant For Today
I was never a fan of Malloy's books when I first read them in the 1980s and 1990s. But I must admit that his basic principles hold true today. Classic attire is best for interviews and companies (such as pharmaceutical sales) that are still traditional suits-only fields. He is also correct when he says that the fashion industry works against professional attire for women, and that if you are excessively stylish in a corporate setting, you will lose credibility. Changing fashion styles are an incredible waste of money. However, you should disregard the outdated suits, rigid hairstyles and hard attache case in favor of more contemporary classic styles. A better book for that is "Dressing Smart" by Chic Simple Author Kim Johnson-Gross. Moreover, if you work in a creative field, you must not follow the navy & white starched formula of dressing--this could get you demoted. Malloy does mention this point, but doesn't really advise for creative jobs.

5-0 out of 5 stars read it and do what it says
All women should read it and do what it says.As a manager, I know what high importance is placed on presentation.In the workplace today, people have become too casual.Why not do all you can to earn more money, gain more respect and be percieved optimally as a professional? It is very easy for women to make wardrobe mistakes at the office today because of the sexy and casual fashions we see in all the stores.This is a bible for the working woman!

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic, Timeless Advice
This new edition of "Women's Dress for Success" covers a lot more than clothes and accessories, and is a treasure trove of advice for any woman interested in self improvement. For most of us, there is usually room for "image enhancement," in how we present ourselves to the world, as our way of dressing and speaking, etc. all sends a message. John Molloy's recommendations are also helpful if you are on a budget. His "fabric test," color combinations, and style tips will save you a lot of money, and you can even do well using his guidelines shopping in a thrift store! You will no longer buy without planning, the things in your closet will mix and match properly, and you will not buy something "just because it's on sale," and find later that it doesn't really look good with anything else you own.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but not great.
I would have saved a lot of time if I had just gotten the list of the mistakes (both career wise & money wise) and read them myself. Even though the mistakes are a good reminder, they were not groundbreaking. Pay attention that this is the "abridged version" which may be the reason why I did not care much for the fluff that came along with each mistake. The mistake, in itself, was self-explanatory.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice Girls Don't Get Rich
Am I an "ostrich" or an "abdicator?" That's the question I asked myself while reading Nice Girls...!These are just two types of women w/whom you may or may not identify who are foundering in dire financial straits, or, at the least, not reaching their financial potential for behaving like "nice girls."Following each case scenario, coaching tips are offered to prevent or stop us from falling into female behavior traps that are financially crippling. Each tip is in bulletpoint format making the info easily accessible for reference.

2-0 out of 5 stars interesting, however not useful
I listened to the audio book version of this book. At first, it seemed quite refreshing to know men and women were so different that you could explain in your work environment why people behaved like that. However, it just didn't give any solution and keep saying it over and over again in this book can bore anyone.
3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but does not reflect all realities
The science of psycholinguistics is one of the hardest to write in, from what I see. For one, it's necessary to keep in mind that what may be the norm in a certain place for a certain time is not, de facto, what may apply to other places and periods. Also, the cultural influences on language happen to change fast, and the books that were relevant and up-to-date just a few years ago seem disappointingly irrelevant today.
2-0 out of 5 stars A disappointment but still relevant book
I have read Deborah Tannen's first 2 books and I found them groudbreaking and very informative.This book however seems to be too much of a rehash of her first 2 books with a little bit of business communication stuck in the middle.I was disappointed by the book and believe there are better books out there than this one. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Didn't want to put it down!
As a beginning golfer who has so much to learn, I have found the answers to so many of my questions in this great book. Great concise information -very easy reading, informative and entertaining book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not JustFor Women Only
I am new to the financial industry and quickly discovered that golf is a common method of doing business.A colleague of mine heard me discussing this and suggested that I read this book as a prelude to my golfing with clients. I took the advice. Much of the book is directed towards women who are new to the game. However it is applicable to anyone interested in playing golf in a business setting. In fact there is a chapter devoted to men golfing with women decision makers. It includes specific suggestions on how to make a novice woman golfer feel comfortable. Again, though relating to women, most of the suggestions apply to both men and women. I remember when I started golfing, though not in a business setting there was still that uncomfortable feeling one can get in an unfamiliar environment. I would have found this book a confidence builder then as much as I do now as my golfing takes on a business orientation. I highly recommend this book to both men and women who intend to start using golf as a business asset.
5-0 out of 5 stars THE Business Development Guide for Women
What an amazing book!Women have been left out, or behind, far too long in busines, in large part because they don't realize or appreciate how important golf is in American business.This book provides practical, understandable information on etiquette, playing rules, and business savvy.It's THE guide for women who want more confidence on the course, and who want to use golf to find, build and strengthen important business relationships.Thank you, Ms. Woo, for this much needed, beautifully written book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing read -- relevant to every area of your life
I loved this book.I picked it up at the airport because I was curious of the subject matter -- I didn't know how Marine Corps leadership applied to my life.The book caught me from the beginning.I admire the authors' ability to tell their personal stories and relate them to the leadership principles.This in an important book for every woman on her quest for personal and professional achievement.Buy this book for your friends, family members and colleagues who want to be better leaders.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read, compelling stories, relevant advice!
I just heard the authors speak at a statewide conference, they are amazing!The leadership lessons they write about in Leading From the Front sound simple at first, but when you really start practicing them you realize that being a leader is a challenge.This book helps you improve your leadership skills in a step by step manner in a way ALL women can relate to.I LOVED IT! And I am a better person and leader for having spent a couple of hours with Courtney and Angie and the book.I'd call this a must read!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Very basic leadership principles..... where's the value-add?
Great leadership books are created by those who have overcome extreme adversity, led suboordinates through hell, were drivers of successful turnarounds, or all three.A majority of theseleaders also see a "book deal" as an afterthought.After reading this book, I felt it's a "bandwagon buy" promoting the escalation of the female up the public and private sector ladders.This book is definitely more fact-based than value-add experience-based.Save your money, google search "characteristics of leadership" and pick up one of Colin Powell's books.... great content and gender neutral. ...
