From School Library Journal:
Adult/High School-Through interviews, nine executives share their insights into the world of business and give valuable advice on how to succeed in that milieu today. Ambitious and driven, they talk about learning the unwritten rules of an organization, getting the support of family and coworkers, and leading a balanced life. All of these women worked their way up the corporate ladder to get to their positions as CEOs, presidents, or vice-presidents of prominent companies. Many are pioneers in their fields. Although there are a couple of interesting anecdotes regarding struggles with unenlightened coworkers, there is no sense of bitterness-each person dealt with sexism in her own way and never stopped reaching for the top. The author discusses such topics as strengths women bring to the business world and the internal and external barriers they face in the workplace. A final chapter distills advice from the interviewees into a series of "Top Ten Success Nuggets" with a checklist of attributes and questions. Lists of Fortune 500 companies considered favorable for women and types of industries considered best and worst for women wishing to become corporate officers are appended. The practical advice given here leaves readers with a can-do feeling.

Store Description: Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
