Book Review: I found this book insightful. I did not agree with everything in this book, however I did think that there were many things worth learning and understanding. The best way to use this book is to glean information and work with everyone as professional as possible. While there is a treasure trove of research I also think there are just men (and woman) who are just difficult based on the fact that we live in a fallen world. The best that we can hope for is that as a Christian I can use this information to build up people around me.
I would like to thank Above the Trees and Multnomah Books for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
apple blossomGrand Forks, NDAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5what men think about women in work placeJanuary 7, 2013apple blossomGrand Forks, NDAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4If you are female and trying to climb that corporate ladder then this may be just the book you need to invest in. Eight years of research and study from author Shaunti Feldhahn has brought about her writing this book. It is a great book if you truly want to understand you male counterpart in the workplace. It will help to open your eyes to a men's view of the workplace. Feldhahn doesn't say the men's view is correct she just lays it out as to what it is a women needs to overcome to get somewhere in a man's world - the work place. I got this book with the intent of sharing it with my business "college student" - senior daughter. I think she will and others like her will benefit from Feldhahn's book.

Although she has some insightful information in it, I was really disappointed in it. I don't discourage anyone from reading it, but her writing style just wasn't my cup of tea.
BlondieTerre Haute, INAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5This book is very well researched & complete.January 5, 2012BlondieTerre Haute, INAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I read the book, For Women Only In the Workplace and found it to be interesting. I learned many insights that I would not have expected in this book. Shaunti Feldhahn does a good job of explaining the way men see things at work. It would be very helpful to woman in the workplace trying to understand her male coworkers. She does not say that men have the only idea or even the right idea just that that is their perception. They truly do compartmentalize their life and consider there to be two truly different worlds - their Work World and their Personal World. Worth reading and maybe it could even spark some discussions. Liked it. I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest opinion to review.
Phronsie HowellAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5September 21, 2011Phronsie HowellAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Not being a business woman myself, this book probably looked a little silly sitting on my kitchen table. I mean really, why would a stay-at-home mom be reading about how to succeed in the office? I will say though, from my psychology background (majored in it in college), this book was an interesting read. A lot of the information as far as how male and female brains differ was old news to me (thank you Bio Psyc class) but it was quite informative to read the snippets of interviews (with businessmen) included. It was good to read (from the male perspective) about how things like even just getting teary eyed might make other men think a woman isn't professional. Granted, I totally understood that idea, but being a woman it was kind of shocking to read that because it's not always something we can control. Now, and the author points this out, not all men are going to think exactly this way; some will be more understanding, some less. But as a general rule, the results presented are a pretty good idea of how men perceive things. So, while I'm not a professional businesswoman, I still got a better understanding of how men think and I really became a little bit more aware of things I can work on should I ever go out into the workforce. Highly recommended!!
