In many areas women have earned the equality we’ve been fighting for. We’ve broken through glass ceilings and achieved great success. We’ve shown that we can prosper by our own means. And we’ve become influential, respected leaders. Yet many of us find ourselves unhappy, anxious, overwhelmed. Where’s the pot of gold at the end of our "I can do it just like a man” rainbow?

Taming Your Alpha Bitch, by Rebecca Grado and Christy Whitman, reinforces what we've known for decades, ladies. Every advancement we've made, every step towards equality in the work force, in politics, even at home, have been hard-fought and well-earned; sometimes at the expense of our emotional and physical well-being.

All too often, our accomplishments leave us with that "glass half-empty" feeling, and we end up pushing too hard, along with assuming the Alpha Bitch mindset which, ironically, t
The book became very repetitive, which made it boring after 50 pages. The bottom line is have common sense.
Upon spotting a picture of some female celebutante reading “Taming Your Alpha Bitch” and falling head over heel for the stiletto cover art, I purchased a copy. I’m not sure whether it was because I’d just read Mindy Kaling’s amusing “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” and a collection of Jhumpa Lahiri’s powerful short stories back-to-back (it was apparently female Indian-American author week), but I thought I was in for a series of funny tales of modern womanhood. Instead, I unwittingly delved ...more
I could not even finish this book. A) I wanted a book talking about how to be more feminine in this seemingly post-feminist world where women have earned the right to be strong and independent but have somehow simultaneously scared away all the men; this book is not that. B) It's not that well-written. You can tell this just by flipping through the book: it's got a larger font and bigger spacing than normal because it's clearly trying to fill up space but doesn't actually have enough to say to d ...more

This one had so much potential but really lacked substance. I found this read to be short, flat and hokey, and reading it almost made me want to be more of an alpha bitch. Most of the advice was the stereotypical female stuff--do yoga, take a bath, drink tea, be nicer, go on a goddess retreat...and they make the claim that the universe is filled with abundant resources and if we wait calmly and patiently enough good things are just bound to happen. Some of the examples cited were completely ridi ...more
I have many many books, but the best ones I eagerly wait for are the ones spirit drops at my feet. This happened when a friend Rebecca Grado unexpectedly offered me a copy of her book. Taming Your Alpha Bitch. How to be Fierce AND Feminine (and get everything you want) by Rebecca Grado and Christy Whitman …Ladies this book is for you! If you’re truly ready to step into your feminine power and apply it to every area of your life, e.g. Career, Family, Relationships, Friendships and more…than tame ...more

I applaud the authors for their insight that women have been denying their innate femininity in a quest to secure all the privileges men have enjoyed in the corporate world. Women have been suffering from both physical and emotion setbacks from the misguided attempt to act like a man. Their book was well written, engrossing, and funny. Great book!!!!
Ok, for the disclaimer, my mom gave me this to read (hm, did she mean anything by it??? rawr! hiss!)

I didn't get much out of this, but only because I have been moving in this direction already. I would have been moved more if I had read it 5-10 years ago.

This looks fun - one year my New Year's resolution was to be the gentler Joanne - maybe the Alpha Witch needs taming! If she goes, I will miss her!
