    This was fabulous. I feel VERY STRONGLY that the name of this book is bullshit. There is nothing about this book that matches the "and Women Need to Tell Them" part of the subtitle. This book is, point blank, about MEN being better. About men doing better. About men learning what the f...

    (4.0) Worth a lot more people reading and discussing. There's a lot of statement of the problem in this book, and I was a little worried that she wouldn't eventually get to the chapter on what to do about it. She's got a lot of things that we can do as individuals to help women in t...

    So I had really high hopes for this book. There's such a need for real conversation & depth of anlaysis on gender bias in workplace, hiring processes, and building institutional competencies in these regards. Unfortunately, this book felt like a retread of other similar books, b...

    A must-read about the importance of women and men working together to lessen the effects of gender bias in the workplace. Lipman provides loads of studies as evidence of gender's detrimental effect on women's careers, but then moves to practical solutions - studies of what's worked and...

    If you are a working woman, many of the examples in this book will sound familiar. Even if you haven't experienced them, you likely know someone who has. I liked the emphasis that gender equality will only happen if we all work together, however it's still frustrating to know that g...

    Fascinating and illuminating book that EVERYONE, regardless of gender, industry or profession should read. While I found myself nodding in agreement frequently and occasionally shaking my head at some of the scenarios described, I also learned a lot about our unconscious biases and how...

    I like this book. I would probably recommend it as a primer on the research and perspective on the topic of women and work, though I have some quibbles, it's generally a good recap of the studies and approaches. I was hoping to get more about "what men need to know" and how to enga...

    Wish there were more clear cut solutions. This is a great read and I?d encourage everyone, but particularly fellow males, to read it deeply and become an ally. ...

    Read for a work book club. This was more satisfying than the last sort of book I read that falls in the "women at work" camp, Lean In, which was so narrowly focused on wealthy women getting ahead at work. This one is supposed to be targeted at men, and so at times was frustrating for m...

    I received an advanced reader copy of Joanne Lipman's, "That's What She Said," and I couldn't put it down once I started reading. This book thoroughly reviews the gender gap, cautiously avoiding the blame game. While the focus is on work place interactions between men and woman, the re...

    This book resonated with me much more than Lean In did. There was much more information about unconscious bias and how women?s and men?s approaches are different, without demonizing either group. The author made the case well for economic reasons, as well as human ones, that women ...

    I was interested in reading this after hearing the author interviewed on a podcast, but it turns out there wasn?t much left in the book that wasn?t discussed in the podcast, and it was very clearly geared towards men (I was already well aware of these issues). So I guess I?d reco...

    I've been spending the last several months reading about gender inequality, what women and men can do to bridge the gap, and where these issues stem from. No book is perfect, and what I have found is that often in the negative reviews there is criticism that the author should have ...

    Probably more useful than ?lean in? but still errs somewhat on the depressing details chapter after chapter on just how tough the realty for any woman daring to leave the home for the work place. A few good tips and interesting success stories of companies / business schools making...

    This book read like an extremely long Wall St Journal article, which is no surprise since Lipman worked there and at many other publications in her career. It?s well-written and researched. Heavy on statistics and the bibliography is 20 pages long. Lots of references. This was more l...

    I am that one person who didn?t really love the book ?Lean In?, so I thought I might feel the same, here. However, this book was much better for me. I agree that there is still a long way to go for all of us, but I like that this book doesn?t look for places to place the blame....

    Really great book and one that I will recommend to all the men in my life. Its a great TRUE feminist book. I say true because the term feminist still has a negative stigma that all feminist are shaved head men haters that want the world to be dominated by only women. Which is the farth...

    i'm more inclined to give this book a 3.75 stars as it mostly retreads on information that i already knew without offering too many new solutions. It does offering some tips on how men can be helpful in the battle close the gender gap in the workforce and makes sure that men are not th...

    I saw a review on here that said they were frustrated at not finding a solution. I found it. It?s on every page. But specifically page 213: ?To effect real change, these young men and women [millennials] will need to shed the bad habits of their elders, and stay focused on breaking...

    Probably everyone should read this book. In the beginning I wasn't sold but I came around. It features really interesting research and also anecdotes. I didn't know about so many things I'd have thought I'd have heard of, for ex, Iceland post financial crisis. Wow Iceland! It was inter...

    Freaking heck yeah! I?m not only excited that I picked up and read this book, but I?m so happy I read this book WHEN I did. There?s so many lessons to learn, and so many ways we can change our daily lives to help every workplace foster diversity, and not just for legal reasons. S...

    Rating: 2.5 stars? I'm conflicted. It was 3 or 4-star valuable to me, but stars are "likes" and I didn't, like reading the first half of this book. Review: I was hoping for a stronger rooting in science: studies, graphs, trends, with proven-effective steps everyone can take to mak...

    "I'm glad we've begun to raise our daughters more like our sons, but it will never work until we raise our sons more like our daughters." ~ Gloria Steinem I wouldn't recommend as much as implore you to read this book. Part of solving any problem starts with awareness, even those as ...

    Lipman provides a very good awareness-raising overview of gender inequality and highlights the roles women and men should ideally play in working toward solving it. Well-written, clear and supported by abundant studies and statistics, this book does a better job of explaining the probl...

    I found this book encouraging in many ways because in almost every chapter I read about experiences that have occurred in my career--it is good to know that others have similar struggles! It is a sobering book in other ways, to realize how many difficulties women have encountered in th...

    I was more informed by reading this book. The examples and easy journalistic style seems common in business life books today. Much of what Lipman says is applicable to any class of workers who are not alpha-males; e.g. older workers, minorities, etc. She seems very focused on driven fe...

    Compared to the previous and older book I read about feminism and gender equality (Does Feminism Discriminate Against Men?: A Debate), Lipman is respectful to both genders without playing the blame game. It's comforting for me to know that we've made some progress since then in address...

    This book did a great job explaining the root of the issues facing women today and how men and women need to work together to overcome them. It also made me look at myself and see the areas that I need to work. I highly recommend this book for all women and men, even if you just read ...

    I picked this booked up originally because in my day-to-day I don?t work with many women and I wanted a refresher on the differences in communications styles so that any interactions I do have will be that much more productive for all involved. I have found this book to be a grea...
