Publisher's Summary

Women make up almost half of today's labor force, but in corporate America they don't share half of the power. A major reason for this? Most women were never taught how to play the game of business.   

Throughout her career in the super-competitive, male-dominated media industry, Gail Evans, one of the country's most powerful executives, has met innumerable women who tell her that they feel lost in the workplace, almost as if they were playing a game without knowing the directions. In this book, she reveals the secrets to the playbook of success and teaches women at all levels of the organization - from assistant to vice president - how to play the game of business to their advantage.  

Men know the rules because they wrote them, but women often feel shut out of the process because they don't know when to speak up, when to ask for responsibility, what to say at an interview, and a lot of other key moves that can make or break a career. Sharing with humor and candor her years of lessons from corporate life, Gail Evans gives listeners practical tools for making the right decisions at work.

Most of the references aren't true anymore. Things aren't perfect, but men have been much more civilized in the workplace.

Must read, especially if you are woman-manager

Must read for all working woman, and not only! It resonates so well with the modern world. And especially with todays focus on diversity and inclusion. Although, I agree with many points in this book, still often I it is not so black and white: things are happening in a particular way not because to is man vs woman, but because it is personality 1 vs personality 2. Both could be female. Both could be male. And 1 and 2 can be interchangeably male or female. However, yes, speaking average - too man points resonate big time. There are many takeaways and highlights from the book, here are just few: * Love what you do! You can't play the game if you don't enjoy playing. * You are who you say you are. The first step to be successful is to convince yourself you are successful. * Women are more about friendship, men are more about winning. * Good idea is not more powerful than the structure that must approve it. * Wear the right uniform - well, this will be an interesting read for women for sure. * How we approach to requests: she hints, he requests. * Meaning of No for men: maybe, later, was not the right moment. Women often treat No as No. * Women are afraid to be rejected. Very interesting book to read, especially if you are woman and if you are manager. Have a good read!
