"Even now, in the 21st century, women continue to be paid less than men, are still notably absent from the executive suites, and among entrepreneurs, receive only a tiny fraction of venture capital. The struggle for equality is not yet over -- and it¿s up to women to take positive action for change. The Girls’ Guide to Power and Success shows readers how. It’s packed with frank advice and hard-won lessons including: * It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. Learn to strip out the hesitant ""buts""; intimate details; and indirect phrasings -- and assert yourself effectively. * Develop the confidence to ask for what you want. Learn how to create opportunities for yourself rather than waiting for them to be offered. * Look for companies that ""get it."" Learn to pinpoint companies that are committed to women’s advancement. With its frank advice, lively tone, and no-nonsense strategies, The Girls’ Guide to Power and Success is a powerful ally for women who are just starting their careers and those who are well established in their professions."

Review:

If you've ever wished you had a mentor in the business world, a seasoned, insightful female colleague who could dole out good advice as well as battle stories, you'll find a friend in Susan Wilson Solovic's The Girls' Guide to Power and Success, a snappy, dead-on look at the ways in which working women devalue themselves and get taken less seriously than men.

Drawing on quotes from successful executives and entrepreneurs, the author addresses issues from leadership style to personal charisma to financial planning. Some of the topics are standard women's magazine fare, such as how to handle sexual harassment, or how to learn to trust your feminine intuition, but some are far less predictable, including how to recognize a glass ceiling, even if your title includes the term vice president.

By far the best material here is on gender differences in communication and body language; Solovic offers concrete advice on avoiding the not-so-subtle signals of weakness that women unintentionally give to their male colleagues and bosses. One executive, Barbara Wilson, for instance, explains how she learned to cut extraneous, chatty detail when she spoke and wrote for men: "You don't want your audience to feel like they're drinking from a fire hose." Solovic's arguments will ring true for women in business, college women, and especially would-be entrepreneurs, who would do well to brace themselves with the savvy Girls' Guide. --Regina Marler
