Publisher's Summary

Chapters include, among others, “9 Non-Threatening Leadership Strategies for Women”, "How to Ace Your Job Interview Without Over-Acing It," and “Choose Your Own Adventure: Do You Want to Be Likable or Successful?” Each chapter also features an exercise with a set of "inaction items" designed to challenge women to be less challenging. 

And, when all else fails, a set of wearable mustaches is included to allow women to seem more man-like. This will cancel out any need to change their leadership style. In fact, it may even lead to a quick promotion!

Adapted audio edition has additional humor essays by the author, not included in print. 

Read by the author.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Brilliant, Funny, and a Must-Listen

this book should be required reading or listening for everyone in the corporate workplace. It should definitely be on the HR shelf.

This.

Sarah took the words right out of my mouth. 25 years in my industry, (not tech) and it brilliantly rings true.

it's funny because it's true

great satire on the state of women and the double bind men often put women in when trying to lead.

No use at all

She is funny-ish on Twitter or TicToc maybe..to some people, but this book is of no use at all. To me it is not funny. If you old her and like to smile while listening, ok. But, if you think you get an advise, forget about it.

You made this grey quarantine day bright!

Everything you write about has happened to me. Now O know how I’m not alone. Even still stupid enough to tell my husband he has to read it. Thank you

Book style helps me deal with male egos in corporations

I am a guy that draws a lot of help from buisness literature designed for women. I can’t stand the male egos of anyone in power roles and usually this stile of literature and lectures help me navigate those egos. Personally I couldn’t read the book due to the constant reference that women are the only ones who have to placate male coworkers and their bosses/employers egos (even the males have to navigate this road). For me there were also huge misses on what she assumes men are thinking when they say certain phrases. My biggest takeaway from this book is relief on hearing someone else is frustrated with the ego managing you have to do in the white collar work environment. BTW do not follow most of her advice on how to fill out a resume - I would never higher someone who puts an anime character for their photo unless it was for a video game designer (Google “how to fill out a resume”)
