I enjoyed the book and this was a great price compared to a book store.

As a career consultant, I will refer clients to this book. I find male clients have questions similar to females and it is important to avoid categorizing a workplace challenge as "women only."

That said, this book fills a need among today's workers. Those who are completely new to a situation will benefit by following the guidelines. You could do worse!

But it's important to realize that when it comes to career strategy, we rarely have simple answers. You're taking a risk regardless of what you do and almost any strategy can backfire. No guarantees!

I particularly like the section on interviewing for information. Few books spell out the differences between new and experienced career changers. As these authors say, senior executives rarely go out on "interviews for information." They're more likely to have coffee or drinks and talk. And at the senior level, you're more of an equal. You may be able to help the person you're meeting -- or you will someday.

We have some areas of disagreement. But as I remind my own clients, every advisor or consultant will be fallible. We all make mistakes and nobody's right all the time. Here are 3 areas where I take a different slant on career change and job search:

(1) When you are job hunting, the authors suggest calling to ask if your resume was received, and then using the opportunity to sell yourself. I say that strategy can pay off handsomely but can also backfire. I wouldn't encourage clients to try to sell themselves to Human Resources. HR typically acts as a gatekeeper: they're only interested in ways to say no.

If you reach the hiring manager you're more likely to win with this strategy.

(2)You need to relocate for personal reasons and your company has a branch in your destination city. The authors suggest you mention your personal reasons ("My mother has cancer") with the request. I encourage my own clients to avoid disclosing personal details. Let's get real: you never know when this information will be distorted and/or used against you. You give up a lot of power when your company knows you aren't marketable because you won't move.

(3) When searching for a mentor, remember the rules change if you approach self-employed professionals. It's not uncommon for mentors to pay for advice and guidance. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between mentors and coaches.

On another note, the authors encourage readers to join Toastmasters or take a public speaking ocurse to gain confidence. Your experience will vary a great deal depending on the club or class. For advice on telephone negotiation and one-to-one meetings, I would recommend hiring a coach or consultant.

The book has gotten rave reviews from famous names. The back cover includes endorsements by Kelly Ripa, Robin Roberts and Barbara Corcoran, all admirable women. I'd like to hear from more in-the-trenches career consultants and recent career changers and job seekers, both men and women.

There is no half star on the rating scale. My actual rating is 4.5 star.

Thanks Tory Johnson and Robyn Freedman Spizman for helping me move closer to what I want in life and in my career.

"Take This Book to Work" is a great read, not only for young professionals, but for those who may need a reminder that women can (and do) conquer the workplace woes. The book is written in a fun format that is easy to read. Chapters are marked clearly which makes for a quick reference guide when a question arises. I flipped directly to the chapter "How To Ask Smart Questions During an Interview to Help You Land the Job" before my interview with a successful PR firm. Not only did I feel more confident, but I got the internship!
