Before buying this book, I would check out her blogs at Yahoo and read the comments from people who are really working for a living.

Even with her business credentials in mind id like to see her advice in action. It's complete stupidity.Miss. Trunk has nothing but unorthodox and bad advice. Some of her Ideas are so farfetched they could quite possibly get you fired.One Point she tries to emphasize is to just take it upon yourself to take time off and not ask. Another Point she makes is to call co-workers on weekend and talk about work. I don't know what kind of workplace she started in but many of her ideas would not be acceptable in mine. Although she has many credentials as a business woman, her advice is horrible. Acting bold is fine but acting like you have no one else to answer to is the message she portrays. Please do not feed your mind with this jibberish. If you wish to read samples and see real reviews of her articles many of which are in her book look at the Yahoo articles, they are often negativley reviewed because of this faulty advice. In my mind she is Trunk not Trump.
