Publisher's Summary

For every professional woman who wants to get ahead, but feels she is at an impasse, Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office comes to the rescue. In this program, Dr. Frankel, reveals the 101 self-sabotaging behaviors women learn as girls, behaviors and habits that are now holding them back in the workplace, such as couching statements as questions, tilting one's head when they speak, waiting to be noticed, and pinching company pennies. From executive to entry level, every woman needs to know what she is doing to subconsciously sound, look, act, market herself, and/or be treated like a "girl". Dr. Frankel's groundbreaking follow up, Nice Girls Don't Get Rich, offers advice every woman needs to know to stop sabotaging her finances and level the playing field when it comes to money. In this program, Dr. Frankel reveals the 75 mistakes women make that are holding them back from financial success, such as depending on men for financial advice and/or support, treating money as a taboo, being reluctant to negotiate, and a fear of math and numbers.

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.

Take it lightly

A lot of the tips are useless outside of the USA. Great first self help book (I'm from Canada)

Thought provoking

Frankel does a good job of setting out some of the underlying sexisms in the workplace and gives practical tips on how to progress despite these assumptions. The emphasis throughout is on the 'girl' of the title (rather than the 'nice') and how girlish behavior may be causing many women to be taken less seriously, promoted less, and paid less. She's aware that in an ideal world being a girl shouldn't disqualify one from effective management or promotion, but is committed to giving a solution, now, for this less than ideal one. Practical tips include not using the diminutive form of your name, not refusing perks, not killing yourself to pull off the impossible in pursuit of praise and not using preambles when you speak in meetings. Her frankness is refreshing -- she says that one doesn't go to meetings because they get things done, one goes to meetings to be seen -- and although the 'Rich' half of the audiobook is mainly geared to American financial norms there's a good mix of sound, practical, psychology and aspirational thinking there too. In sum, better than you'd expect from the title and the package - any woman who works in a corporation or business (especially one where men in suits set the norms) might find something to take away here.

Some contradictions but over all good

I'll definitely be going through this audio book again and taking more notes. Good advice given
