Buy this book and keep your yellow highlighter handy. It does not matter where you are in your career right now, this book can help you grow professionally and personally. Dr. Frankel lists 'Making Miracles' as Mistake 31. This is the super woman of your office. Everyone depends on her because they know she will make things right. But at what cost to her? Frankel points out that a woman in the office must learn how to manage people's expectations so that she does not become overburdened. Mistake 73 - smiling inappropriately. Girls are taught to smile.

Whether you are an administrative assistant or a vice president, 'Nice Girls' offers nuggets of wisdom that you should know but don't. I read this book over a weekend and found it fascinating. I saw myself more times than I care to admit. Some of the suggestions you already know, but ignore. Some will be new to you, but all are helpful and can lead you to success. I will take this book to my office and keep it handy in my desk drawer.

I highly recommend this book.
