It's a Man's World - Or Is It? Polly Courtney
on 26 September 2011
It's a Man's World, but which sex is the best !
Polly Courtney shows with her character that women do hold the place in the boardroom as well as the bedroom and with big success.
She shows in this book that a woman can be pushed and made to make it in a Man's world but at what cost?
It really does have you questioning your own morals, by just thinking if it were me, what would I do?
Yes, the main character is full on, but being in an all 'lad mag' environment that is needed, her character is not a wall flower but a woman on a mission. You see her weighing up various situations and traumas and all with a cost .... Sometimes her own sanity and others her own morals. There must be other women out there in the magazine industry knowing just what Polly is talking about and living that life most days.
So good to have such a hard hitting story in today's age ...... But at the end will she carry on and be the hard hitting woman or will her feminine side come through stronger? You will have to grab a copy to find out.
I have previously read an earlier book by Polly, 'The Day I Died', really is worth a read if you haven't read it yet.
