Sex and the Office

( 1 )

Overview

Until Helen Gurley Brown came along, the words "single girl" and "sex" were rarely uttered together in polite society. With the publication of Sex and the Single Girl, her 1962 controversial and taboo-breaking bestseller, people began to see the world-and a young woman's place in it-a little bit differently. A few years later, the great iconoclast joined two more forbidden worlds—"sex" and "the office."

Overview

Until Helen Gurley Brown came along, the words "single girl" and "sex" were rarely uttered together in polite society. With the publication of Sex and the Single Girl, her 1962 controversial and taboo-breaking bestseller, people began to see the world-and a young woman's place in it-a little bit differently. A few years later, the great iconoclast joined two more forbidden worlds—"sex" and "the office."

Sex and the Office showed women how to master personal and professional relationships at work, from getting a job to what to wear on the job. Certainly, times have changed, but you'll still find within these pages an entertaining and liberating guide to being a modern woman in a man's world. Brown explains "The Matinee," a lunchtime affair that takes place from 12:00 to 2:30 PM; how to be sexy when you travel (business travel is ever so sexy, after all); and how to look like a strawberry-vanilla bonbon at work. Most important, as Brown writes, "Being great at a terrific job is sexy." A great job will help you become the kind of interesting, independent, and engaged person who men naturally notice and flock to.

Filled with honest and straightforward tips on how to love your boss, handle office politics, enjoy office romances without guilt or fear, and how to impress, charm, and flirt with men who matter, Sex and the Office continues to amuse, inform, and drop jaws forty years later. Brown's book offers an fascinating look into a world that no longer exists in quite the same form, but was the beginning of a liberating era for the working woman.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This 1964 title was Brown's follow-up to her best-selling Sex and the Single Girl. Here she concentrates on romance and more in the workplace. In the current climate, Brown's advice would probably lead to sexual harassment suits, but this fun book echoes a different era and is a precursor to the chemically inspired free love movement that flourished later in that decade.

    Everything you need to know 'a head' at work

    I loved this book. With each chapter, I found it hard to put down. It was very easy to relate and understand. Step by step information made it easy to understand relationships at work, how they work and where they are going. And how to handle the not so right relationships at work. Great book for the single at heart.
