*An extra star for featuring Wonder Woman* :)
(A birthday gift from my wonderful friend, and perfect considering how recently I began my new job.) The real advice about the workplace is basic common sense, which I expected. The gems here are the classic wonder woman comic panels. They are written in what I suppose is lifelike 40's dialogue, which today reads with definite hilarious, and often sexual, overtones. I breezed through it in one sitting, and got up delighted.

This book is kind of sexist and embarrassing (like the way it suggests you should wear glasses to look smart, and leave work to buy shoes only if they are on sale), but the pictures of Wonder Woman are cool. Plus my dad gave it to me for Christmas, so that's another reason why I gave it two stars instead of one. Dad, I know you are trying to be supportive, and it's the thought that counts.

In looking for office/job hunting related books I found this one on the shelf. I've always been a fan of comics so I gave it a try. So of the interviewing tips are downright wrong and dangerous in this economy, but otherwise, it was a well balanced humor/helpful book that any comic fan will enjoy (not just women).
Amber
The book was so funny. I enjoy every page. Job advice from Wonder Woman. I loved the old comics drawings in the book too. I might vote might be a little high than other people. The reason being that I'm a huge fan of Wonder Woman.

This was fun to flip through, but not something I would visit again. Cool art and cute layout. I might give this as a gift to an office drone female friend if they were having a shit time at work.

A fun book. Essentially an Ally-McBeal-esque take on Wonder Woman, using vintage comic excerpts. Oddly enough, even as a man, I did find 2 good corporate tips to take with me to work!

This was a fun book a great friend gave me for my 40th birthday. Wonder Woman was my favorite superhero when I was a kid.
