Dear author and publisher, why do you come up with this book only now?! Ten years ago, a friend who recruited me to their company told me that the reason I was not hired because the supervisor who conducted the interview was threatened by my skills. Several years after that, I had a job interview in the I.T. department of a huge local T.V. station here in the country. I had no problems with my series of interview with the human resources head, but when I was interviewed by two supervisors from the department where I should be assigned, I encountered a bit of problem because of being honest. When I was asked if I can do hard coding, I answered that I can but that's my biggest mistake because I was compared to one of them. The one who asked me the question candidly joke that I beat his companion because he cannot do it, which made the receiver of the remark speechless and humiliated. And yes, all supervisors who turn down my applications were all male! If only this book was released sooner, I could have learned how to deal with those men. The content may be in humor form, but there's a bit of truth to the details especially on how some men still think that the workforce should be still male-dominated. They may not admit it but there are instances that they are threatened by their female counterpart. I'm quite sure that all employed ladies or used to worked before has experienced several instances that were listed in this book. I could grab copies of this and give as a present to some friends, particularly those who currently experience sexism from their work.

Hilarious look at the sad state of how women are treated in the work place. When you think about it too much you either have to laugh or cry and, like the author, I would rather laugh. So much of what is joked about in this book is true. Often truer than true. I would love to leave copies of this on everyone's desk at work (including the bosses) in hopes that it could bring enlightenment to some and chuckles to others.
