    "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.

    "On"

    In the second half of Dr.Frankel's title, "N.G.D Get Rich" she is already in a high paying position and the corp has paid her way through school to get her a degree. (yes, she did the work, but most of us dont have flexible high paying prestigious jobs who will put us through a prestigious school.) Altho i did't care for the underlying message ("just play dirty and WIN") i did appreciate her coaching about managing finances and there being no excuse that women can't or shouldn't get rich by their own volition. In this, investing has no 'glass ceilings' and doesn't discriminate. She's right. Learn to invest. It can be done with as little as $100 and she will advise on the best methods, plus get your mindset in the right direction.

    "Empty, shallow"

    No content, no explanation, no corroboration ...totally one dimensional shallow "flashcards"
    If this woman is so smart then please refer us to gender research, to books,publications on the topic and not just to "from her experience".

    "Eye-opening!"

    While I consider myself a level-headed woman who performs well in a business environment, this book really opened my eyes to some of the mistakes we as women make in the corporate world. Such subtle things that we wouldn't even give a second thought about can drastically affect how we appear in the eyes of our male coworkers. As the author points out, the emphasis in this title shouldn't be on the "girls," but one the "nice." I have made many of the "nice girl" mistakes the author highlights, and they have ended up costing me professionally. I highly recommend this book to any woman who wants to move up in the work force.

    "surprising disappointment"

    I was a bit disappointed in this one. A good friend recommended the book, so I got the audible and the hard copy. I couldn't stay focused on the objectives by listening to it. This is one I wouldn't recommend purchasing.

    "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.
