Now in paperback, Mrs Moneypenny's Careers Advice for Ambitious Women gives the last word on careers for real women.
It's all about who you know and what you know. You can't have it all, but you have to do it all. Saying 'no' is the single most important life skill for women.
Welcome to the world of Mrs Moneypenny. This high-flying, super-connected, super-woman is on a mission: to help you get ahead at work. In this incisive, hilariously frank book, Mrs Moneypenny tells you everything you need to know, from nurturing your network to the art of outsourcing.
Whether you're just starting out or a rung from the top, let Mrs Moneypenny be your ultimate mentor.

She runs her own business while juggling three children (Cost Centres 1, 2 and 3) and a sports-obsessed husband. She has acquired a large mortgage, several academic degrees of varying uselessness, and a passion for shooting innocent birds. She presents the Channel 4 series 'Superscrimpers', and the Mrs Moneypenny show has run at the Edinburgh Fringe, off-Broadway and the Hay Festival.
