Lamenting the fact that 41% of U.S. workers are dissatisfied with their jobs, Friedman and Yorio (The Girl's Guide to Being a Boss (Without Being a Bitch) brim over with advice to help their readers join the lucky fulfilled 60%. They aim their tips at women at all stages of their careers, from those wanting to rise in their industry to those itching to switch to another or to start their own business. With a friendly, encouraging tone, the authors delineate how to self-evaluate priorities, skills and career aspirations. The book is broken down into broad, essential career-bolstering lessons, such as selling yourself, taming the fear of success, asking for what you deserve, networking with other women and addressing the particular challenges of working moms. Interspersed are the inspirational stories of successful women, all of whom have followed the refreshingly practical advice: If you're not looking out for your career, nobody is. Though the authors don't offer much novel advice, their successful brand and peppy attitude should win them readers seeking a can-do kick in the pants. (Jan. 15)
