Library Journal Review

To the mind's eye, the dolphin suggests the image of a friendly sea animal as opposed to the predatory shark, which may attack in a rush of fury. Glasser and Smalley (coauthors of More Power to You, Warner, 1992) successfully use the characteristics of these sea creatures to convey the differences between the management styles of women (dolphins) and men (sharks). In the 1980s, there was a widespread belief that women climbing the proverbial corporate ladder had to behave like the men who had preceded them. With the changing business environment of the 1990s, according to the authors, women are succeeding on their own terms. This informative, well-written book comprises interviews and specific profiles of successful managers. Here we learn important lessons from women who share similar stories. Although the focus is female-oriented, both genders can benefit from reading this book. Recommended for public and academic libraries.‘Belinda Wise, SUNY-Farmingdale (c) Copyright 2010.
