Quick Reference Mentor

I found this very helpful, dispite knowing some things already. I loved hearing her personal stories, HONEST opinions, and advice about women and the workplace. It's still a male favorable world and it's nice to have some good advice and input from someone who's "been there, done that".

Career Advice From Your French Fairy Godmother

Author and narrator Mirelle Guiliano plays the part of the gentle, wizened, french-accented mentor in this great book of advice on the act of balancing career and life and doing it with style and class.

It's cliche these days, but it is still a man's world, especially in many work places and women are still struggling to find a way to fit in to the male-culture board rooms and golf courses. Guiliano shares her own, and other women's stories of how they made the workplace their own and succeeded.

Wow

I love all books by this author. She first captivated me with French women don’t get fat. She so elegant, completed and poised. This book is for women looking for a mentor one that tells you everything good and bad. She covers almost all topics. If I can choose one book that all women should read or listen to it’s this one. Thank you Mireille

Charming!

What did you like best about Women, Work, and the Art of Savoir Faire? What did you like least?

The best part of this book for me was that it was narrated by the author, Mireille Guiliano. I don't know that I really learned anything new but it was an enjoyable listen - just not one of my favorites.
