I saw this author give a presentation at our SWE-Detroit 2010 Professional Development Conference. Since I enjoyed her presentation so much, I decided to buy her book...I normally don't do that when I see speakers.

The only word I can use to describe this book is "Wow". Any woman that works in a corporate environment, especially female enginerds, would greatly benefit from reading this book. I had numerous "Aha! I'm not the only one!" moments while reading it. I also fee

I wrote this book to help others learn from my forty years in industry and education. It is written by a scientist and gives advice in a practical and tested manner that everyone can use, male or female. If you are just starting out, if your career has stalled, if you are having trouble with work-life "fit", if you are afraid to negotiate for yourself, if you need help standing up to that difficult person... you will find that advice and much more.
I've met Renee through the Society of Women Engineers. What she has achieved is nothing short of remarkable! I recommend this book to any young professional women entering the workforce or a mid career women. Especially Engineers!

I think this is a most read for all women AND men. Especially men who work with women or manage women. Very insightful.
