    So Good I Ordered a Second Copy

    This book taught me valuable skills that college never did. I told my supervisor about the book, and she asked to borrow it. Since my copy has notes and highlights, I am ordering a second copy for her. Take it chapter by chapter, do the exercises, and you will definitely see improvements at work and at home.

    The subtle links between language, gender and power

    Communication and gender gaps plague the workplace. Groups at corporate meetings and presentations often ignore females' voices or relegate them to the background. Fortunately, Dr. Phyllis Mindell diagnoses the language problem that blocks women in business and provides grammatical cures for lackluster skills. Her book offers excellent examples, exercises and 'action plans' to guide women (and, to a large extent, men, too) through the maze of language and politics. The text's only flaw is a small dose of repetition. Otherwise, getAbstract considers this book essential reading for women in the executive suite and those trapped below the glass ceiling.
