best business book

One of the best business books I have picked from Audible. And a good buy because you get two. The first book has 101 mistakes women make. This sounds like it might be tedious (or negative) but not so. For each the author gives an example. And then a tip (what to do) to contrast with the mistake.

I can't say if men will like this book. For me, a woman who has worked for over 30 years, I learned something from every one of the 101 mistakes. None of the examples or tips are lame. I really recommend this.

The second book "Don't Get Rich" is also very good.

Basic, but telling

I had "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office" on my shelf, unread, for years, so finally purchased the audiobook file. The information seems basic at first blush, but when put into context, the Coaching Tips are priceless. Having never been in some of these situations (fortunately), I now have some idea of how to react should they ever arise - and have a book to reference after I have gone down Ebbinghaus' forgetting curve. Worth the time listening.
