Frankel had many good points. I found myself behaving like some, and wasn't aware it was a female behaviour, until now.
For the most part it was an eye opening book. However, I did find a few of her points subject to her opinion, ie: Albrights brooch vs. Frankels own approved brooch...please. Otherwise, this book was very interesting, eye opening, and sad that women still need to adapt their personalities to accomodate men, to play the game. Also suggested by Frankel, were many other good books to read.

I found this book immensely helpful and readable, and a great addition to the field. Dr. Frankel's style is clear and concise and she obviously speaks from a wealth of knowledge and experience. Though the book has just recently been published, I have already found myself recommending it to female clients in my psychotherapy practice who are stalled in their careers. If you're looking for some direct advice and helpful hints about how to get ahead in the corporate world, this is the book for you.

AN AWESOME READ! By reading "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office," I feel like I can make the changes needed to further my career and soon be in the corner office myself. I have bought copies for my sister, mother and close female friends and they have all enjoyed it immensely. I also found Dr. Frankel's other book, "Overcoming Your Strengths," helpful to my career. The tips in her books are insightful and make a definite difference.

This book is amazing. It is a quick reader. The chapters are short and sweet, you can read a few at a time on your way to book, during a bus ride, during your break, when you have 15 minutes to relax. The author names the most common mistakes women make and gives great tips on how to work on those mistakes. She suggests books, web-sites or personal recommandations. The tips are great for most, if not, all careers. Again, this book is a must!

All the unconscious, everyday bringdowns women to do to themselves, to stay off the fast track. Laid out forthrightly and without sentimentality, author Lois Frankel makes you understand that women have to break out of learned growing-up behaviors and inhibitions to make it in the corporate world. Look in the mirror, ladies -- it's you, not them!

Dr. Frankel was my coach for over a year. Many of the suggestions in the book I heard from her directly and I must say, they were all correct. When I did what she suggested I felt more empowered even if I wasn't always successful. I guess the bottom line is, you have to make a choice as to whether you want to be the statue or the bird.

This book does a fine job of exploring gender issues not just in the corporate world but also in other relevent aspects of life. It was a good read. I got a good kick out of this book and also suggest reading the book "Stumbling Naked in the Dark" to understand how men can benefit and learn from us women.

I hate to admit it but Dr. Frankel is right on with her observations of what it takes to succeed in the corporate world. This book is as close to having a personal coach as you can get. Even if you take only half of what she says you'll be twice at likely to be more competitive in the workplace.

Every tip in this book is informative and practical. The self- assessment test in the beginning helped me strategize my reading and focus on the low scoring areas first. I was learning a lot and decided to continue reading the other chapters as well. The test, in it of itself, is worth it.

Having worked in the hi tech industry for almost 10 years now, with all the ups and downs, many of the insights by Frankel are accurate and many are really lessons to pick up from. A must read for any woman keen on making personal changes to fit better in any corporate environment.
