"Earning It" is a non-fiction business book geared for women in the workplace. Being a working woman today, I am so appreciative for those women who have gone before me and have paved the way for me. There is a long way to go but oh-so-many of the stories in this book show how far we've come. It gives me hope that we're on the right track!This book is filled with stories of women from many different sectors of the economy. The author tells the stories of a ton of different women. There are some [...]
First of all, WTF is this cover? Does this woman not have eyes just so that she doesn't have to read this terrible book?What was the point of this? If Lublin simply wanted to share stories of women in business then she needn't have put a bullet-ed list of contradictory "lessons" at the end of each chapter. If, rather, the point was to actually think about the issues facing women in the workplace and analyze them, maybe she should have actually DONE that instead of just putting a bullet-ed list o [...]
A must read for women climbing the ranks in any male dominated profession, and a must read for men who have to help pave the way for women to climb those ranks and not be part of the problem for women to smash the glass ceiling!
I didn't make it through the whole book. After it told me that doors are knocked down with a push and the 'push' outlined was a mix of luck and having a well connected daddy - I gave up. I agree with the review that said it shows how far we have come. But by no means are these strategies that I would or even could employ today.And maybe next time no description of what the hard fought leader is wearing. It has no bearing on her successes.
I am appreciative of the fantastic women who paved the way in corporate America, and these stories do them justice. However, the author insisted on belittling the stories with a full account of what the women were wearing during their interviews, which seemed counterintuitive to the point of the book.
The stories are all interesting and provide valuable perspective, but the book still has he attitude that women should adjust to the attitudes of men, rather than how to correct and shape those attitudes.
Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book. Lublin did not bring anything to the table that I hadn't already read/heard in other books/websites/podcasts that focus on women in the workplace.One positive aspect I can note is that I liked the biographical information on the women the author interviewed. Their paths to the top were all interesting, and it showed that there's no single road to success. Particularly as a young professional woman without a background in business/finance, I was pleased t [...]
This is well-written for future female executives and men who want to understand better the value female executives bring to their organizations. Peeps can also learn how to remove the barriers they may unknowingly support: the barriers that prevent women from getting to be CEO. "Learning to work for a*@holes" is an excellent section, as is the double standard discussion of female and leadership stereotypes. I also learned that after over thirty years of efforts to combat them, sexual harassment [...]
If you have not read or heard a lot of stories of women in the work place (especially in higher level management) during the 80s and 90s there might be something in this book for you. It is well laid out with stories from executive women through out as examples of the strategies discussed. However, I don't agree with the author's stipulation that stories from older women are of inherent value to younger women today. Many of these stories are the same so once you have heard a bunch of them they a [...]
I listened to this book on audio all day! It was so interesting to hear the experiences of many different career driven women. It felt repetitive at points but I often feel that way when I read/listen to a non-fiction book straight through. I feel like this is a great book to read as a women in business especially as I am starting my career.
useful for all professional women
antiquated and condescending. did not finish.
Informative and useful perspectives.
Interesting and informative perspectives.
Never judge a book by its cover. I should have paid heed to this :PI had to muster actual courage to read the book after looking at its cover which gave quite an old-fashioned appeal. But I took a good step to start the book. Don't be amazed if you start the book and then find yourself glued for a couple of hours without a restroom break. Joann has done great justice to the book weaving its story in a very engrossing way. The way she narrates stories of 52 trailblazing women is simply superb. Ma [...]
Summary: I enjoyed learning from the stories and fun facts in this book, but it was a bit too business focused for me."Among the first female reporters at The Wall Street Journal, Joann S. Lublin faced a number of uphill battles in her career. She became deputy bureau chief of the Journal’s important London bureau, its first run by women. Now, she and dozens of other women who successfully navigated the corporate battlefield share their valuable leadership lessons." (source)The first thing [...]
I won an advance copy of this book through a giveaway.Successful women, many of them CEOs, share their experiences of forging a career in a range of industries. The lessons they learned in the process are presented in this book to offer practical advice and motivational support for other women. The experiences in this book are varied and interesting. Although the focus is on women working in the large corporations of the USA, the issues they faced and the solutions they found could be applied t [...]
An iteresting read, it is not often people talk about the mistkaes they hae made along the way, enjoyed it.
While the book gears towards documenting the struggles and triumphs of various female managers, it also provided interesting career tidbits about how to be a good boss, how to work towards management positions, whether sideway moves are wise (they sometimes can be!) I finished the book in one seating, as I want to learn everything other distinguished ladies ahead of me have achieved. But as I was halfway through, I felt increasing aggravated about how often times complaints were left unheard, an [...]
Interesting stories and advice from America's most successful business women. But are heels which ruin feet still necessary? Can people not comprehend that assertiveness is good and necessary for leaders of either gender? As a female who started in business decades ago and thought we'd be further along, there's a sadness in this read
Candid account of women in very high positions. Can't relate because I was a working woman in a "not so great" position. However, I admire them for their honesty and their fortitude.Would be very interesting to write a similar book from the childrens' perspective of their ambitious Mothers.
I won this book on a goodread giveaway . Easy to read and split into smaller chapters .This book is full of tips and advice and well worth a read before that high poweredinterview
