Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Rich in fact, theory and opinion, this collection of Harvard Business Review articles assembled by Nichols, an editor of the journal, is singularly enlightening on the state of women in the workplace. Complaints about discrimination, sexual harassment, not being taken seriously, etc. take a back seat here to accounts of highly motivated women who tell their own inspiring stories. One overcame poverty to become a bank president; another, after her father's fatal heart attack, revolutionized the cardiovascular diagnostic process with the products of her medical technology firm. Women are developing their own share of American business, we learn, with statistics already showing 30% female ownership. (Apr.)
Booknews
Collects 12 essays previously published in the Harvard Business Review between 1977 and 1994, with an introduction by the editor. Addresses such issues as whether or not women manage differently from men, how companies can promote and encourage potential leaders who do not fit the traditional mold, and how needs of career and family can be accommodated. Lacks references. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
