Overview

Oprah found Fawn Germer's work "very inspiring" and you will too -- especially if you ever feel banged-up and worn-out by being a strong woman leader in a difficult work environment. You aren't a misfit. You are a mustang.

Mustangs are wild, tough and agile. Mustang Sallies are too, says one-time Washington Post correspondent Germer (Hard Won Wisdom). They don’t go along to get along at work, and that can bring troubles. Germer’s advice, based on her own experience and her interviews with women as diverse as Hillary Rodham Clinton, Martina Navratilova and Susan Sarandon, is: Don’t mute yourself, be bold, "take your power and use it for yourself." Germer intersperses short chapters quoting directly from notable women she has interviewed with thematically organized chapters ("I Am What I Am"; "Choose Your Battles"; "Verbal Combat") exploring various aspects of how to thrive as an independent-minded, outspoken, self-assured woman. Germer’s advice is specific and illuminating: for instance, "verbal sparring is normal" in the business world, she notes, with clear advice on how to engage in battle. If you’ve ever felt judged and isolated at work for being who you are, Germer’s book offers support, encouragement and strategies for coming through with your self and your goals intact.

Editorial Reviews

Annabelle Robertson
Do you feel isolated and judged at work, simply for being who you are? Then you may well be a Mustang Sally, insists journalist Fawn Germer ("Hard Won Wisdom"). Mustang Sallys (from the song) don't go along to get along, says Germer, which means great rewards, but also great trouble - especially in business, where women have little leeway as outspoken leaders. Peppered with interviews from some 75 different women like Hillary Rodham Clinton, Erin Brockovich and Eve Ensler ("The Vagina)...

This has saved me about two years in psychotherapy. If you are starting to wonder if work is going to make you insane, you need this book. It's really wonderful.
Carolyn H.
Every morning,I put on my business suit and pumps, go into the office and hope like heck I don't get beat up again.I have had my share of bad bosses and experienced many situations of sabotage. I have never felt like I fit in. Now I know that it's because I belong with these mustang women like Nadia Comaneci, Eve Ensler, Carly Fiorina, Janet Reno and the others in this special, life-changing book. One thing I learned is that I have to be more proactive in my personal interactions.
Diane Belmont
I was given this book as a gift from a friend who said, "Now you'll understand what's going on with your life, Diane. You're a mustang. That's not a negative." When I read Fawn Germer's Mustang Sallies, I knew what she meant. I've always felt misunderstood and underappreciated. Now I realize I am what Germer calls a "trailblazer." I've never been one to go along to get along, and I don't kiss up to move up. That hurt me in the past. Mustang Sallies is filled with strategies to make me succeed.
Tammy Briggs
I got an early copy of this book when Fawn Germer was the keynote speaker at a conference I attended. This book is a powerhouse. On one level, it is great to have such insightful input from Germer's interviews with people like Hillary Clinton, Susan Sarandon, Janet Reno and all kinds of athletes, CEOs and mustangs. But, Germer's words are powerful and her insights are absolutley unforgettable. She has been through some of the same hellacious corporate political encounters that I have experienced
