A must read for all women in Corporate America facing the challenges of race, male egos and the stereotypes that come along with it!!! It's almost a Bible for hard-working women.

The Girl's Guide is exactly what many women need to kickstart or refine the way they approach business. It is a learning tool and as its title suggests, it's for 'girls' in the sense that it is something that we all wish some mother figure or mentor in our lives could have told us sooner. It is an insight to 'womanhood' in business and life in general. I was relieved to read that other women have come across similar road blocks, either climbed over them or plowed through them. It seems that someone else out there understands what I'm going through. It was comforting to read the tales and take advice from women's personal histories relating to working in the 'man's' world. I found it truly motivating.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
