"Reach for the Top" examines the challenges, 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 case studies, essays by leading analysts (including Judith Rosener and Felice Schwartz), and inspiring first-person accounts, these twelve "Harvard Business Review" articles provide a fresh look at the issues women face at work. This book is a valuable resource for managers trying to understand the dynamics of gender in the organization, as well as an invaluable tool for women making their way up the corporate ladder.

HBS Press has earned a reputation as the springboard of thought for both established and emerging business leaders.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.
