1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Casee Clow on January 18, 2013
Format: Paperback
As a proficient technology executive with a successful career history, Janet Pucino saw firsthand the inequality women face in America's modern corporate world. From the difficulties women face in moving up the corporate ladder to the belittlements that prevent the fullest use of their skills at every corporate level, Pucino witnessed the remarkably one-sided struggles that result from an environment historically prone to gender biases. In her new book, Not in the Club, An Executive Woman's Journey Through the Biased World of Business, Pucino explores the concept of an informal but obstinately elite group dominated by men in the upper echelons of corporate America: the "Club". The premise of the book illustrates the reality of gender inequality in the business world, as well as calling attention to hierarchical biases and the general inaccessibility of organizations whose executives demonstrate Club-based mentalities. Backed by startling research study results and calling on the experiences of other executives - both male and female - Pucino boldly uncovers the reality of the mood in today's corporate world.

Not in the Club takes several shapes throughout its exploration, all merged into an informational book under the systematic and professional voice of its author. Partly a memoir, it serves as a canvas for the personal experiences and anecdotes Pucino has collected throughout her career that support her Club theory. Now the CEO and founder of a company specializing in content development, publishing and consulting, she has much to reflect on in the progress of her career and the people whose professional involvement helped - as well as hindered - her managerial experience.

My 30 year technology career spans the names of IBM, ROLM, Siemens and Cisco and I found this book to be quite perceptive as Janet's journey through her career was about the same time period as mine. She articulates very well and paints a depiction of the inner workings of corporations cultures and cliques with the politics surrounding "The Club". This is by no means a man bashing book, but a very well written and insightful analytical exposé of her journey that should be mandatory reading for all corporate executives. Your corporate VP of HR would be heuristic in delivering this as a read for the executive team and invaluable in driving positive change in culture. The Club identifies what you may not know even exists within your firm, but could very well end up being similar to that of the 7 habits of high effective people (Covey) that had a profound positive impact on Corporate America in the 90's.

Not in the club is an insightful guide for women as they navigate their career. This book can help anyone assess their work environment for bias and decide how to respond; it may even help someone recognize biases they unknowingly hold. Pucino backs her analysis with compelling data to paint a clear picture of biases women routinely face in the work place and offers practical advice to deal with these situations. While geared toward women, the advice offered can equip both men and women to succeed. Not in the Club empowers women to recognize the value they bring and take charge of their career options to the benefit of themselves and their organization.

"Not in the Club" is a must read for everyone, especially business professionals. Pucino does an excellent job at describing common behavioral biases that are present in most workplaces. Most of us do not realize we are subject to biased actions, but once you read "Not in the Club" you will be enlightened. Pucino's story is eye opening one, a truly remarkable journey up the corporate ladder. She does a wonderful job connecting her experience to the field of behavioral economics. From a fellow MBA's perspective, "Not in the Club" should be required reading for business students.

While written by a successful woman executive, there is wisdom for everyone despite gender, ethnicity, age or level of education. Ms. Pucino sheds light on the complexities of biases and the social dynamics of the workplace that limit the kinds of engagement and productivity necessary for effective collaboration and innovation in the 21st century.

Not in the Club is an insightful read. Pucino opens our eyes to what limits human potential with a convincing and well thought out call to action that can change leadership and opportunities for talent in the workplace.

Not in the Club is an enlightening and engrossing read for women in the corporate world. Pucino weaves in her own experiences as a top level executive with expert advice on how women at a senior level surrounded by men can get ahead in an organization without losing their minds. Regardless of gender, Pucino offers excellent strategies for effective communication and collaboration with others within an organization.
Not in the Club is an excellent navigation tool for female executives at the top and at entry levels. Highly recommended.
