Review

"...offers solutions that employees and employers alike can implement to eliminate racist attitudes and make diversity in the workplace..." -- Library Journal, November 11, 1996

"An insider's study of the difficulties encountered by women and minorities in climbing the corporate ladder." -- Publishers Weekly, December 9, 1996

....At a time when Affirmative Action itself is proposed for downsizing and America searches for a new game plan to compete in the world market, Stith's arguments take on an edge... and he plumbs the myths and realities, including reverse discrimination, why it's not so -- The Book Reader, May 1997

Anthony Stith shows us that discrimination and racism must no longer be viewed as a burden but as an opportunity to achieve greatness and our potential -- Evelyn Everett, President/Founder, Antelope Valley African-American Museum, July, 1997

The title of this book speaks for itself, yet the author does not set out to prove anything, but supplies the blatantly obvious facts -- Savoir Faire Magazine, March 1998

This book skillfully deals with the social taboos of racism and sexism that our society fails to address. It is revealing and on point while providing practical solutions to the problems.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Gaylynn Lankford on January 24, 2000
As a seasoned human resources professional, I was looking forward to reading this book. This author takes an extremely negative approach and bashes human resource professionals in the process. This author clearly sees the glass as "half empty." Very disappointing.

Quarterly Black Review, Ahmad Wright
... an overflowing cauldron of anecdotes, government statistics, lectures, and prayers.... The best of the book ... is not its fiery reprimand of institutional racism, but the solutions given and hope provided for those fighting the good fight.... a hearty dose of tough love and strong medicine.

Breaking The Glass Ceiling by Anthony Stith is a very useful class. He got right to the point about racism in business. I believe that he conveyed his point very clearly and in an easy manner to read.
