    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...

    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...

    While I'm glad I read this, Lipman is preaching to the choir here. I'm really looking forward to my husband and some of his colleagues reading it, so that they can begin to understand why women continue to say we are second class in business and at home when (some) men think they have ...

    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...

    Well researched and important, this book often left me frustrated and sad or fuming. Really? We still have to have these conversations? Then I think back on my professional career and say yes, we MUST have these conversations. Men and women need to read this book. We need to work toget...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 had the privilege of hearing Mrs. Lipman speak at an event. She was engaging and provided major insights into this newly revamped movement of women?s rights. This book was interesting. As a working millennial female, these issues hit right at the core of what the struggles are in 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    A little repetitive, but I thought it was a thought provoking read about what is means to be a woman in business. It brings out some frustrations / hurdles that women face, but not in an angry fashion. A lot of it is about how to balance and more importantly about what men need to unde...
