The right book at the right time: game changer,
This review is from: Pushback: How Smart Women Ask--and Stand Up--for What They Want (Kindle Edition)
If every woman in the workforce read "Pushback" I think we could get a lot closer to closing the gender gap in pay. It should be a 'must read' for women in college.
I have worked as a consultant in corporate America for two decades, with hundreds of companies and numerous Fortune 500 clients. I have seen first hand how women struggle not only with equity in pay, but all of the contributing issues: getting the choice assignments, getting the sponsors who push for your opportunities, taking risks, balancing homelife, and even changing companies to get better opportunities. Every woman who reads Pushback and truly embraces the four-step process for negotiating as a way of life will find that her career (and life) is affected in hundreds of ways that will lift her onto a new trajectory of greater success, greater impact, and greater satisfaction.

I agree! It changed my life. I've worked in consulting for over 10 years in male-dominated STEM industries and have more confidence in myself and my work than ever before because of "Pushback". A lot of people refer to Sandberg's "Lean In", which is great in it's own regard, but Rezvani's book is better because she gives you the tools you need to actually apply it to your situation. While Lean In is a battle cry, Pushback is a gamechanger.
