    In Alpha Girls, award-winning journalist Julian Guthrie takes listeners behind the closed doors of venture capital, an industry that transforms economies and shapes how we live. We follow the lives and careers of four women who were largely written out of history - until now. These women, juggling work and family, shaped the tech landscape we know today while overcoming unequal pay, actual punches, betrayals, and the sexist attitudes prevalent in Silicon Valley and in male-dominated industries everywhere.

    The Money Mirror shows how women's attitudes towards money reflect their feelings about themselves. Through better understanding the ways they relate to money, women can develop positive emotional attitudes and gain control of economic and personal issues. "Lieberman and Lindner document how intelligent women are still very often prey to . . . a vicious cycle of fear and confusion that prevents us from effectively earning, negotiating, investing, and managing our incomes. This lively, anecdotal book explores women's historical relationship to money, the common symptoms,…. and the antidotes." —(Ms. Magazine) . . .[offers] a wealth of down-to-earth tips on how to develop money awareness on the road to leading healthier, happier financial lives."

They hold what the authors call "extreme jobs", which entail workweeks of 60 or more hours and have at least five of 10 characteristics, such as tight deadlines and lots of travel. The authors consider the shape and scope of these jobs in relation to increasing competitive pressures, vastly improved communication technology, cultural shifts, and other sweeping changes.
