It gives you total insight into how you can excel at work in every arena, whether you’re just starting your very first job, contemplating switching fields, or finally a boss who’s building her own team.

I thought I'd pay attention to the five 5 star reviews (and the accolades from people in the industry) rather than the lone 1 star review, but I should've done the opposite. This book is full of completely obvious "tips" such as bring your resume to a job interview, and the importance of writing a cover letter.
I guess maybe if you're an undergrad who somehow wasn't already taught this stuff you'd find the book really helpful, but for anyone who's passed that stage in their lives/ careers this book is pretty much useless.
Make sure you're in that target market before buying this book. Needless to say I returned my copy.
Really okay stuff! I am a regular member of whowhatwear website that showcases the fashion trends and DIYs.I love the website so much so when they recommended the book, i instantly pre ordered. I was kinda looking forward to knowing the writer since i have been surfing their website since quite some time. But, the content is really superficial and very predictable. I mean, we all know the dress code and how to behave at work. Dont buy the book unless this is your first time to working in real world!!!!!
This is a great, quick and easy read with really great tips for those at the entry-level stage in their career and beyond. For those in more senior positions, there is much to take away from it as new tips, reminders and as life hacks. I especially loved how to-the-point this book was, as all the tips were broken down in a straight talk and outline format, while still giving illustrative examples. A must read for all girl bosses in training.
