This book was really just your standard chick-lit read, although it did speak to some interesting issues about sexism in the workplace and equal rights for women in typically male dominated industries.

I found the big 'showdown' at the end to very anticlimactic and i definitely wanted more from it. I also really didn't like Keith as a character and i did not think he redeemed himself at all.

Also, just a warning to anyone thinking of picking this book up that some of the writing is what i

Sadly I doubt that there is much exageration in Wendy Squires The Boy's Club - probably more truth than she is willing to publicly admit. There were some moments of humor but mostly I was wondering why Rosie bothered. The grand finale was a hollow victory.
It does explains a lot about Channel 9's dismal programming (except for Sea Patrol which I love)

Well, echoing another reviewer - I think the book does not exaggerate. It shows a sad world of boys' club decisions, and the way TV decision makers operate. It will certainly make me see things like TV promos and programming decisions with fresh eyes.
