Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers by Lois P. Frankel


"Quit being a girl! Nice girls don't get the corner office."

If you asked anyone who knows/has met me to describe me I guarantee the first thing out of their mouth will be "she is such nice person." Everyone says it even strangers who have just met me. "Gosh you are so nice" and so on... Even as a teen during my rebellious phase I was never able to shake off the word.

So when I saw the title of this book I knew I had to read it. Just to be clear there's nothing wrong with being nice but from the very first chapter I was like oh oh I'm in so much trouble.

I was committing about three quarters of the mistakes highlighted in this book. It was obvious that the book was meant for me. Of course this book isn't meant for everyone. The author gives the disclaimer at the beginning of the book.

Basically the book is about the 101 mistakes women make consciously or otherwise which ultimately sabotage their career.This mistakes are a result of socialization by social institutions. At the end of every mistake the author provides coaching tips to assist you in correcting it.

This is the kind of book that you will read again and again after the first time you read it. If that is not a good investment I don't know what is.
