    Lots of good stuff in here. Good references to research pointing to what should be fairly obvious about women in the workplace. A culture of victimhood does not empower. Shaming does not stimulate empathy. ...

    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...

    I received a free copy of this book. I not only enjoyed it but it brought a lot of insight into the dynamics of working in the business world. I would love if HR personnel made this book required reading before people started their jobs. With so much emphasis on the "me too" movement t...

    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...

    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 will teach you not to do things like starting emails to your co-workers with things like; "Sorry to bother you but.." or to doubt yourself professionally and to appear meek. I did this for years and have stopped and guess what? Things actually get done now and people listen t...

    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...

    Amazing book. It makes you angry at the beginning, but, tehre more you read it, the more you realise that, even by not being eye opening, it depicts in a clear and catching manner the female perception in the business world. ...

    Prepare yourself for anger, and epiphanies: Lipman?s straightforward, well-researched work will enlighten you on why meetings are where women?s careers go to die, why a lack of support and mentorship prohibits their advancement, and why working against men?instead of including th...

    Hmmm. Well the information is fascinating, I felt like most of the book was see......peppered with stats and information explaining just how big the gender gap is in the USA. As far as info for what men can do about it, I'm not so sure. Little info about it at the end. And it would pro...

    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 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...
