I read just about every business book I can get my hands on and fall asleep halfway through. This was the first one that made me laugh- repeatedly while teaching me incredibly valuable tips about the corporate world and how to navigate the tricky parts. Love it!

Everything I ever wanted to know about being cool but didn't know who to ask has been answered by Rachel Weingarten in this fabulous book. Weingarten wins an applause from me because the book is not only an easy read, she mentions my favorite chocolate shop (See's Candy) on page 214. If you're wondering why a book about being cool in the corporate world has a few paragraphs about chocolate, you'll need to read it to find out. This book covers everything you need to know at work and beyond. It's funny, hip, and beyond cool. Whether you're getting your first job or are ready for retirement, this book will keep you on track and help you have fun at work while impressing the heck outta everyone!
