Journal Entry 2 by wingHunterRyuwing from West Norriton, Pennsylvania USA on Monday, January 05, 2009
This is a hardcover book and will only go international if someone is willing to mail it overseas. I personally can not afford to send it via anything other than media mail so to start I need a USA participant and then we shall go from there on where this book will travel.

This ray is limited to 7 participants maximum before I would like it returned to me. Less if not that many people sign up.

Amazon Editorial Review:

I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE DID THAT! offers a new and compelling perspective on conflict and competition among women in the workplace. Nan Mooney explores how and why some women hurt each other on the job, and what we can do to begin cleaning up the mess. Based on real stories from real women, I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE DID THAT! provides a provocative social and cultural exploration of the often troubled and painful dynamics that unfold among women on the job.

The massive influx of women into the workplace in the past thirty years means a whole new category of problems has arisen. Suddenly women are working over, under and alongside other women. Their professional relationships are subject to the pressures and conflicts of organizational culture, not to mention society at large. Women on the job have grown more comfortable with ambition, competition and success, but that hasn’t negated the value they place on communication and relationships, on being liked and being nice. Striking a balance between these two selves is a delicate undertaking and many women are uncertain how to interact in a workplace where such lines are regularly being blurred.


Working together, women have fostered a breathtaking degree of positive change. But there is another side to the story. If women are to continue moving forward, the time has come to examine — honestly and unequivocally — our very human impulse to compete with, hurt and even destroy one another to get what we want. In I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE DID THAT! Nan Mooney provides vivid insights on the emotional toll competition can take on working women and charts a path towards more productive and fulfilling relationships for professional women everywhere.

Journal Entry 5 by sunfi from Alexandria, Virginia USA on Tuesday, March 10, 2009
Just completed this last night. It was an interesting book, I guess I'm pretty fortunate that I haven't ran into many of these situations/issues in my professional career. It may be because I've adopted the policy that I'm there to do a job and not to make friends and that I prefer to keep my personal and professional lives separate. I did like the Madeline Albright quote "Frankly, I think there's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." I don't think a woman should have any special advantages, she should just be treated like any other person, fairly and honestly. I liked her final chapter on what should be done, what we can do differently as a gender and a nation. After reading that Sweeden allows 96 weeks of maternity leave and the US only offers 12 weeks of federally subsidized child care, I'm ready to move to Sweeden.

I'll have it on it's way to fungirl503 by the end of the week.
