Ms. Wilson began as an attorney but has since become a small business expert, award winning entrepreneur and the co-founder of [...] the information destination site for American small business and is the epitome of a successful American woman.

It was her goal, with this work to share information which she and other women of power and note in America utilized in their careers to gain their personal definition of success. However women are not men and it was important for Ms. Wilson to point out what strengths and weaknesses young career minded women put forth in today's society that differ from the more readily accessible male model. Above and beyond that was to impart that success is relative and multidimensional and ultimately it is up to the individual to define and attain on the terms of their choosing.

The title at first glance may seem exclusionary. While most certainly written for a woman pursuing upward mobility in career and life in general; this book in no way constitutes "male-bashing" of any sort. In fact, many of the life lessons presented would benefit any individual seeking self improvement, even a man.

Her comments particularly on knowing ones personal goals and devising a personal mission statement which incorporates non-negotiable attributes to keep one's whole life on track are especially potent. A fulfilling career is only one part of a successful and powerful life.

Author and consultant Susan Wilson Solovic tells how working women can be more effective in top positions and move up the career ladder. She highlights the differences between male and female styles and cites ways that women often sabotage themselves by showing weakness and a lack of confidence in how they speak and act. Using examples and diverse quotes, she illustrates what women should do to express the power they have, which is the key to being taken seriously as a leader. Solovic challenges many overly optimistic beliefs about how things have changed for women in the U.S. workforce and backs up her assertions with recent statistics and research. We [...] highly recommend this book, which provides a welcome strategic reminder that is clearly directed toward businesswomen - though why call them girls? Oh, that's a little irony from the author or, at least we hope so.

I read this when I was 12 years old (the 2001 edition); grabbed it from a bargain bin. I ended up being surprised that something with so much power would be put there in the first place.

It talks about how women need to enter the playing field if we're ever to brake the glass ceiling, basically. In retrospect, I remember the book offering advice like smiling less so that we're not seen as submissive to men, and I do think now that that's poor advice. (This review is based off memory.) But I do see the value in not acting like we're subordinate to any other living being, which is what the book overall advocates for (and the newer edition likely articulates even better).

Since reading this book, I continued to be a student leader in my community in both student politics and service. Now I'm pursuing a career in entrepreneurship, and often am involved in grassroots political activism with a lot of my peers. I think a lot of that has to do with reading this book when I was young. It was from reading this book that I knew it was possible to be a leader and live life on my own terms, than to accept anything less than what I can be from other people.

After years of suffering from subtle discrimination (and feeling guilty because my instincts told me it was happening, but my socialized conscience said, "Shame on you for even thinking it!"), how refreshing it is to find a young author willing to not only admit gender discrimination occurs, but gives concrete suggestions for combatting the disease.
The writing is easy to read, gives specific examples (which I compared to my own experiences with eye-opening results)and is thought-provoking, to say the least. I recommend this book for any woman who has experienced gender discrimination -- it will help you cope more effectively, with positive results both career-wise and personally.
More importantly, I recommend this book to any woman who thinks she has not been discriminated against because of her gender. Chances are, she is inadvertently championing the discrimination cause. As Ms. Solovic points out, in many ways, women are their own worst enemies. It's time we recognized it, and work together to stop it.
I added this book to my company library, and made it recommended reading for every manager (male and female) in my organization.

I picked this book up because I thought the cover was "cute" and the title "catchy". What a surprise when I read it - quickly. So much great information. I think this book could benefit every woman in business. Thanks for helping me!

This should be displayed next to "What They Didn't Teach You At Harvard Business School." It's an absolute primer for corporate survival and success. Planning a strategy for climbing the corporate ladder is an essential that most women overlook...one can't simply move along aimlessly and expect to rise to the top. This book is a companion to the journey...an older sister's road map. Any young woman will benefit from Solovic's advice.

Susan Solovic's "The Girls' Guide to Power and Success" puts it right back in our laps. We have to make the changes in our expectations and behavior. She provides the motivation and the tools.
Little has changed in the last 50 years except that there are more women in titled positions. With these titles came no change in the lack of independence from male persuasion in decision making. We're still doing it their way.
Time for women to step up to the plate, read Solovic's book and march to our own drummers.
Excellent encouragement for success for women, because we do live in a mans world!
Very well written and laid out. Easy to read!
