The Male Factor – A Book Review for Working Women

January 14

I’m a working woman. I have a job that takes me away from my home a good chunk of my day. It’s honestly not what I want to be doing, but it is necessary in helping my husband meet our expenses.

I haven’t read too many books for working women that benefited me any, up until now. I recently read “The Male Factor: The Unwritten Rules, Misperceptions, and Secret Beliefs of Men in the Workplace” and found it to be a stuffed full of information needed in the workplace. It even has a section especially for christian women! The book is backed by the author’s extensive research.

Here’s more about the book:

Book Summary:

Many talented women today risk undermining their careers without realizing it, simply because they don’t understand how they are perceived by their male colleagues and customers.
In What Men really Think, best-selling author Shaunti Feldhahn reveals the inner reality behind men’s views — the unspoken expectations that no man would dare to publicly acknowledge, and no woman would learn from an HR department. These revelations include:

• Men’s unwritten ‘rules’ of the workplace
• How men perceive workplace emotion
• What common situations with female colleagues most frustrate men– and why
• Why revealing clothing can sabotage a woman’s effectiveness
• Why some men think flextime is fine, but equal compensation for it is not

What Men Really Think equips women with the information they need to make informed decisions and compete on a level playing field.

Author Bio:

Shaunti Feldhahn is a nationally syndicated columnist and the bestselling author of For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men and For Men Only, which together sold one million copies. She holds a Master in Public Policy from Harvard, worked on Wall Street and now lives in Atlanta , Georgia .
