Essentially a how-to manual for learning good business communication skills, this book was inspired by the author's seminars for working women. Each chapter begins and ends with the same quiz designed to gauge the reader's current level of business savvy, with lectures and case studies sandwiched in between. Attention is focused on the simplistic SELF profile, which places the reader in one of four personality types. If skimming the surface is what is needed, this book succeeds, covering everything from self-esteem, negotiations, listening skills, and mentoring to fighting sexual harassment. If more depth is desired, consider Pat Heim and Susan Golant's Hardball for Women: Winning at the Game of Business (LJ 7/92). Weakly recommended for high school and undergraduate libraries.

A workbook in self-esteem differing from the typical self-help book in that it's geared to employment. Siress uses checklists, quizzes, and disguised real-life examples to aid women in climbing the career ladder with gusto and perhaps ease. A chapter on image presentation, for instance, warns against using faulty speech patterns (avoid you and substitute I) and body language. The section on negotiations defines three types of negotiators and explains how to win over adversaries. Although not based on an in-depth psychological probing, this guide provides womenand other new-to-the-workforce individualsthe skills to get what they want. Barbara Jacobs
