The best psycotherapy session I have ever had,

This review is from: Women Don't Ask: Negotiation and the Gender Divide (Hardcover)
From the first 10 pages, I realise this book hits the nail on the head. I can identify myself in 90% of the situations described and I finally understand that there is nothing wrong with my personality, but possibly with my gender, operating in a big corporate environment. This is an eye opener and a call to fight for our rights. But in a "capitalistic" way, rather then via public demonstrations. Every woman should read this book from as early as high school, to start practising her negotiation skills and overcoming the fear to ask. Every mother should pass it to their daughters and spur them to ask and to negotiate. Now I am determined to ask for discounts when I go shopping as an excercise to overcome my own fears. And I am determined to ask for another salary increase even though I just got one last year!
