    I'd posit that the better advice would be to say, "I don't know, but I can find out. The points that Kate shares could all summarized in a page or two. The attitude in this book was reminiscent of older TV screens airing films such as "working girl" or "philadelphia". A glass ceiling for women is not in place because of male management, according to Kate White.

    While the rating tells you how good a book is according to our two core criteria, it says nothing about its particular defining features. This is an important book for any woman who wants to rise to upper management in a corporation. Now Kate White tells you how she changed her style and self-image - and gives you specific, straight-from-the-shoulder advice about how to put your life in high gear and make your own career dreams come true. The one big quibble I have about this book is that two of Kate's points are to never say "I dont' know" and to never say "I'm not sure.

    Because if they don't know, and they ask me, but they know more than me about it even if they don't know the correct answer, and then Solid advice, engaging. Beginning with a revealing self-test for you to determine how good, or gutsy, you are right now, White reveals the nine strategies every career woman must know, while she shares the inside stories of how other gutsy women - like Revlon's Andrea Robinson, television host Nancy Glass, renowned decorator Alexandra Stoddard, Easy Spirit shoe exec Claire Brinker, and former Reagan media advisor Merrie Spaeth - became stars in their fields. This is an important book for any woman who wants to rise to upper management in a corporation. This behavior "undermines your career and prevents you from achieving maximum success. Emily also has to take care of her friend Declan who is depressed and tries to commit suicide though they end up sleeping together.

I felt that it contains a lot of useful information for women in the working world and was and is definitely good for women of my generation - I felt I needed a refresher in how to deal with those good girl, people pleasing, tendencies and become more gutsy.

Qualities Engaging Recommendation This is a guidebook for working women who believe that they are being held back in the workplace. The mystery regarding the brewery break-in goes throughout the story, with Luke tracking down clues and the thief ends up being a lot closer than anyone realized.

He had that bad-boy aura she found appealing, and yet he was a polite police detective who had no problem working with women. It probably goes without saying that their scenes together were all over the chart: passionate, sweet, tender, hilarious. Beginning with a revealing self-test for you to determine how good, or gutsy, you are right now, White reveals the nine strategies every career woman must know, while she shares the inside stories of how other gutsy women - like Revlon's Andrea Robinson, television host Nancy Glass, renowned decorator Alexandra Stoddard, Easy Spirit shoe exec Claire Brinker, and former Reagan media advisor Merrie Spaeth - became stars in their fields.

Kate went on to create a bold new editorial position at one magazine, she accepted the top spot at another when she was seven months pregnant, and she became editor-in-chief at McCall's magazine as a working mother who intended to spend time with her kids.

Jan 28, Jane rated it really liked it This was a re-read for me as I read it not long after the book was first published in I received it as a free gift at a women's conference.

About the Author Kate White is the editor-in-chief of Redbook magazine. First, career opportunities will open up dramatically because you are willing to act boldly.

Stop right there, SOLD. But Gutsy Girls Do: Nine Secrets Every Working Woman Must Know About book: Kate White's photo on the cover of this book, her references like Julia Roberts and Demi Moore, and her advice on how to develop the career of women made me a little nostalgic to the mindset and the movies of the nineties.

In nine steps, she details how a good girl can become a gutsy girl. It's a great book if you are a fan of Skins and enjoy reading about interlinking relationships and friendship as it does get very complicated but touches on once again relevant issues from teen engagements, pregnancies, depression, self harm and sexual consent.

There is Declan, who is suffering from depression. A girl had to keep her options open. There is normality to it all. In fact she often makes things worse, for everyone including herself. I'd posit that the better advice would be to say, "I don't know, but I can find out.

I am looking forward to reading the Gutsy Girl Manifesto when it comes out this year.

And did she ever! There are times when Emily isn't particularly likeable, there are times when she is irritating, there are times when I want to bang certain characters heads together and tell them to cop on; typical teenage stuff really. I was a couple of years older than the characters, at the time, but what struck me was that it was one of the first contemporary novels especially YA novels I came across with gay and bisexual characters.Get this from a library!
