    1. I tore through this in less than 24 hours, and found it an incredibly engaging and thought provoking read I found the two chapters looking at quotas in senior leadership roles Boards, and mentors sponsors particularly interesting I appreciated how well researched this was, and I hope men and women alike pick this up and take something meaningful from it Workplaces and society generally would certainly benefit from this being read widely


    2. I found this tricky to rate but mostly because I haven t read anything like it before, not because I didn t like it This book shows how workplace gender discrimination needs to be tackled by changing male attitudes, and organisational structures and practices, as opposed to fixing the things that make women different to men The book is very readable and I liked the little streak of snarky, sassy humour throughout It is set out well and the chapters flow into each other nicely There are a few cas [...]
