I was somewhat skeptical when I read this book. As a strong believer that you can both be a good and successful person and that corporate cutthroat is not the only way to succeed, I had a somewhat harsh reaction to the title. However, I have been encouraged to read this book by several of my coworkers and finally decided to dive in and give it a try!
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the book. While it still plays into some workplace stereotypes, overall it provides some concise, actionable ideas for female leaders to implement in the workplace. I don't love that it plays into the idea that some actions are inherently feminine, but I get where the stereotypes do exist.
The effectiveness of the advice varies greatly depending on what setting your workplace is, and will definitely be more helpful in a corporate setting than in a small business or non-profit. However, if you read it with this in mind, overall its a decent read!
