9780071035804: Reach for the Top: Women and the Changing Facts of Work Life

Reach for the Top examines the challeges, frustrations, and opportunities facing today's professional women: gender stereotypes and the conflicts they create, the glass ceiling, sexual harassment, discrimination, and work/family pressures. Featuring Harvard Business Review case studies, essays by leading analysts (including Judith Rosener and Felice Schwartz, whose article started a national debate over the "Mommy Track"), and inspiring stories from successful women managers, these 12 HBR articles provide a fresh look at the issues women face at work.

From Publishers Weekly:

Rich in fact, theory and opinion, this collection of Harvard Business Review articles assembled by Nichols, an editor of the journal, is singularly enlightening on the state of women in the workplace. Complaints about discrimination, sexual harassment, not being taken seriously, etc. take a back seat here to accounts of highly motivated women who tell their own inspiring stories. One overcame poverty to become a bank president; another, after her father's fatal heart attack, revolutionized the cardiovascular diagnostic process with the products of her medical technology firm. Women are developing their own share of American business, we learn, with statistics already showing 30% female ownership.
