I am a professional speaker who focuses on diversity, etiquette, and poker. I was considering writing a book dealing with stereotypes and how professionals can blow a business deal by being unwittingly insensitive. Imagine my shock when I read Leslie Aguilar's book. I read it in one sitting. Afterwards, I tore up my notes, outline, interviews... EVERYTHING. I didn't need to write my book. Leslie Aguilar captured all of my concerns and MORE. She offered solutions to assist with gaining perspective. I loved this book. Now, I recommend it to all my workshop attendees. Want to avoid putting your foot in your mouth? Read this book.

My name is Collette Marie and I purchase books on Amazon with my friend Ron's help. This small book tells it like it is -- I am not a business person, but on a private one-to-one level, I use this book to try to educate friends and others as to the divisive, damaging effects of gender and racial stereotypes and exclusive language (such as the exclusive use of male pronouns and male terms to describe all of humanity, which includes women BUT YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW IT FROM THE EXCLUSIVE PATRIARCHAL LANGUAGE THAT MOST PEOPLE USE WITHOUT EVEN QUESTIONING IT OR BEING AWARE OF IT! This must end if we are to have a truly egalitarian world where women are perceived as being of equal importance with just as much "visibility" as males. Our culture still tends to treat women as second-class citizens and to otherwise render women invisible.) This small book is non-blaming, simple and straightforward and includes techniques on how to effectively confront sexism, racism, and stereotypes of ALL kinds. A must-read for all those in business and otherwise who want to help create a more just and inclusive world.

We used this at my workplace along with the VIDEO. (Brings book to life. You must have the video--compelling and practical!) I personally delivered the trainings to over 750 folks over the course of 6 months. Even though it addresses some of the most difficult situations, it beautifully opens up dialogue that educates everyone in the room. This is a MUST-HAVE for anyone doing diversity training. It's practical--VERY useful! And, get the video!
