I had to get past some bias to buy a book with a title like this and in a screaming electric pink and neon blue cover but I did and it was worth it.

This was good grounding for what the future held and the bumps on my head from that glass ceiling.

Recommends it for: all woman in the business world...
I was told at the young age of 24 that I was working in a mans world, and that it was no place for a young woman. It then became a challenge for me to prove that I could hold my own in the business that I had chosen to succeed in. I was a success until my illness took me down. I think of my illness as a tempory one and that I will be back in the game soon!

The title obviously catches your attention, and sets the humorous tone of the book. I had to read this as a class assignment. The writing was very casual, very friendly. The advice was kinda of obvious, but it still had some interesting points. The author's anecdotes were amusing. Overall, I enjoyed reading it.
