Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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)

More About the Author

Girls Guide is always on Caitlin's mind. She's constantly coming up with new ways to make the Girls Guide more relevant and helpful to women who work. The evolution of the Girls Guide from one book to four and now this web-site has been under her creative direction for the past three years. Not that she figures out complicated mathematical problems on her way to sleep. But rather, she can't seem to turn it off and will find herself lying there thinking about where they can take Girls Guide next, another children's book she should write or the dialog from some guilty pleasure movie.

In the daylight hours Caitlin and Kim run a food-focused PR business called YC Media and have written four books to help women achieve professional success:

The Girl's Guide to Starting Your Own Business
The Girl's Guide to Being a Boss without Being a Bitch
The Girl's Guide to Kicking Your Career Into Gear
Happy at Work, Happy at Home (coming out September 2009).

Whenever possible, Caitlin and Kim speak to women about the importance of building self-confidence at work by being yourself and have appeared on national television including the Today Show multiple times, and in magazines including Time and Real Simple.

Caitlin is married to writer Andrew Friedman and the mother of twins. She loves chick-lit, most everything on television, great bbq and an uninterrupted bath that lasts at least an hour.

What I like best about this book is it's not just the opinion of the authors. It contains the stories and advice from many different women in many different kinds of careers. If you don't have the kind of confidence the authors seem to, there are stories of people more like you - who were hesitant at first to take charge of their careers then figured out they had to and figured out the best way to do it in their situation. Maybe nobody is truly happy in their job, but if you want to get closer to it, if you want to feel like you're getting where your talent and hard work should take you, there's something in this book that can help you get there.

I love this book. Caitlin and Kim have lived what they write about. Their style is engaging and motivating, not stuffy and overbearing as in some self-help books. The examples they provide cover a wide range of situations--a variety of professional, financial, social and personal goals, a mix of ages and experiences, successes and failures.
The authors also explore topics some other books tip-toe past--tears at work, PMS, 'family comes first'--and how other women have dealt with these in their professional life. Read the book. For sure, you'll get information and insights you'll want to use in your own career.

Reading this book has really got me thinking how to take control of my job, to truly craft a career/life that works for me. The Girl's Guide asks all of the important (and sometimes tough) questions, but at the same time is encouraging and supportive and gives so many real-life examples and stories from other women, that you believe this is actually possible to do.

Reading this book has opened my eyes to my full potential. Plus, it's great to see that success can still be found even after mistakes occur.
Caitlin and Kim have really been there and gone through these experiences and they want to see women succeed in the workplace.
They're great female role models and I think any girl, whether she is just getting out of college, is finding herself in a rut, or is enjoying climbing the corporate ladder, can benefit from this book. Inspirational stories and helpful tips to help all of us get ahead. So, come on, isn't it time to kick your career into gear? Of course it is-and this book can help!

Great advice, quick to read and digest, excellent self-help tools supported by real-life stories and vignettes. The book is well-organized, with lots of lists and examples. The index is sufficiently detailed so that topics of special interest can be easily located in the text.

A must-read for women sitting on the fence about making a career change. The authors convincingly demonstrate that if you know what you want, you can make it happen. And if you don't know what you want, they'll walk you through the process of self-assessment, goal setting and using your personal resources effectively.
