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

Loved it

This was a delightful book. I especially loved the authors accent and her honest perspective on ways that American women can utilize savoir-faire to their advantage and especially for professional growth. Wished I’d read this book years ago. It’s equal parts: fun, lifestyle, and career development!

Brilliant Mentoring for Women

I was drawn to this book after listening to “French women don’t get fat”. Amazed with the balanced view of life in that book and in this one.
What strike me most is her mentoring with this book, the story telling, her voice and the natural talk was as ioI had Mireille right in front of me. And this is the exact moment in my life where I needed a mentor in my professional life changing. One of my favorite quotes “saying NO is an acquired talent”
A must book for women and men. A lot of what she said reminded me of great bosses, men, mentors in my life .

Just what I needed

Instead of another overinflated “NYT bestseller” Mireille truly gives life lessons without the SEO keywords and keeps things real. As a woman who has no mentors (climbing up a ladder which none of my family or friends has ever done) it was refreshing to listen to and to learn from. Merci madame

Savvy and Stylish

I loved every part of this book, as I have with all of Mireille's other titles. Her dynamic stories guide through advise on business, lifestyle, and of course food. Hearing the book in her own voice is quite a treat as it adds an additional layer of character. I recommend for any woman in business or man looking to gain a women's perspective.

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.
