Gail Evans provides very practical advice in a very matter of fact way. As a consultant and trainer for Woman Owned Businesses and author of ¿Capitalizing One Being Woman Owned¿ I always look at women's business books from the woman-owned angle. Although the book is written primarily for women that are employees, almost everything in it is applicable to women who own businesses or are self-employed. One of the best parts of the book is the guidance on "getting picked for the Team." The "rules" in this section definitely apply to women business owners in negotiation and especially in marketing their products and services. There are several places in the book where Ms Evans points out that women don't ask, often waiting to be asked. This approach will not work if a woman business owner is seeking financing or selling her products/services. The advice in this section could help make a huge difference for women business owners. The very best advice in the book is about how women can use their relationship orientation and skills wisely and to advantage; women business owners can apply this to running and marketing their business. One other very good section is the explanation about "Yes is Yes." Unfortunately, we women don't always accept a Yes immediately, but continue explaining, seeking reassurance or justifying. I would recommend this book to any of my Woman Owned Business clients and workshop attendees.

I am a business student in my first year of college. When I found this book I thought that it would help me succeed not only in the business world but also in college. I was very let down. I did not agree with most of her points she brings up. I felt as if she were making excuses for herself and many others. I don't find it hurtful to be a woman in the corporate world. I only find that more empowering. Evans brought up every typical stereotype that could possibly be brought up and in my eyes that does not make her any better than the people that made those stereotypes. Although, some points she made were very valuable and could potentially be helpful, most of the material in the book was not for me.
