Library Journal Review

This collection of essays covers the progress made by women in the workplace. It addresses such issues as mentoring, networking, dealing with sexual attraction in the office, the dilemmas faced by working mothers concerning work and family, competition between men and women, developing negotiating skills, and managing conflict. Some of the contributors are well-known authors; all have extensive backgrounds in the areas of business, psychology, organizational behavior, and/or human resource management. The problem with this book is that it offers very little that we do not already know. It presents a good overview of the problems faced by women in the workplace but one would hope for something new in this area. For larger collections. Grace Klinefelter, Ft . Lauderdale Coll.

CHOICE Review

A collection of papers by competent scholars that addresses internal and psychological problems women have at work and external barriers to women's career advancement. Each topical chapter is a good source of information and contains citations to empirical studies and additional references. Topics covered include the myth of managerial androgyny, sexual attraction at work, the imposter syndrome, mentoring versus networking, negotiating approaches for women, and managing career and life stages. The volume is suitable as a source for students taking courses that deal with the work environment. For those well read in the field, some of the material will not be new. Nevertheless, it is a balanced source of material and is a companion to Preparing Professional Women for the Future: Resources for Teachers and Trainers, ed. by Jean Ramsey (1985).
