    "The message was drowned in anger"

    While I think there are some good messages in here, it was difficult to see past the anger. She rails against stereotypes of women, but constantly presents men as little more than dominance-hungry, belittling, mysoginists. I couldn't finish the book. By the time I stopped (about half-way through) I was tired of the "woman = good, man = bad" argument. There may well be a lot of truth to her descriptions of awful, belittling working environments for women and I certainly can't find fault with urging women to fight to create work environments that are nurturing and supportive of our own rise to power, but there are many work environments, including my own, that are quite different. Things aren't perfect, we still have a long way to go, but neither are things as universally bad as she suggests. In the end, I couldn't relate... thankfully.

    "Thoughtful and Educational"

    I think the author presents some excellent, well thought out, and generalized issues that women face. As a male, I do not always agree with her viewpoint, but I thank her for bringing to my attention issues that I have honestly grossly looked over. Even if you are like myself, who at times sees things diametrically opposite from the author, it is wonderful to learn and hear the other side so that commonground can be found and women can find greater fulfillment and happiness in their lives. It was, in short, enlightening.

    "current and helpful"

    Good book, lots of good points. Seems to be quite current in what women are still facing, no outdated horror tales. Useful methods and suggestions are given. Many anecdotes from her own career and other women, and no lame ones. I don't think she puts down men in any bitter way, I think she models working successfully with men and women both. But ... realistic.
