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.

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.
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.
I liked the book and would recommend it for working women to read it ,so as get ahead and not sabotage their careers
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.
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".
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.
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.
