Kate White gives us her witty and wise secret sauce to fast-tracking your career, thinking big, having fun, getting the money you deserve--all while pursuing your passion.” (Claire Shipman, ABC News Correspondent and co-author of Womenomics)

“I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This packs a powerful punch: Ms. White covers every possible topic the up-and-coming female executive will need to tuck into her Prada portfolio. This book should be on every career-minded woman’s bookshelf dog-eared and well read.” (New York Journal of Books)

I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This is packed with practical lessons she’s learned over a long tenure as a leader.” (Fast Company)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good read but no real secrets 16. Januar 2014
Von annabel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was not my first choice of book, relating to a very American theme but it is a good read. Kate White does not preach or sound like she is showing off and while her advice is not new, it is timely and well written. Certainly it makes you want to read her novels and research her life as editor. She comes across as a great leader and down to earth. The tips and tricks are worth re-reading and debating with a coach or partner. I would have preferred some more references to being socially intelligent and a wider cross section of leadership examples, hence giving it only four not five stars. However, when read with other similar books like Lean In, it adds yet another dimension to the theme of women in leadership. Well worth investing the time to absorb this excellent book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great advice! 18. April 2013
Von Astrid
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read many career books for women and I really loved this one. It is full of hands-on advice from the Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief of 14 years. It ranges from advice how to land a job to your first time as a boss and finally how to have fun while doing it all. I have incorporated several techniques such as "draining the swamp" meaning to set regularly time aside to focus kn the big picture and not getting lost in everyday troubleshooting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen For any professional women ready to light the world on fire. 25. September 2012
Von Jenny Foss - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a career coach and job search strategist, I admittedly scrutinize career-oriented books with a critical eye. There's just so much fluff and rehashed info in the world of career-oriented non-fiction.

But I was actually quite delighted by what I found within the pages of Kate White's new book! It's not only be an easy, engaging (and fun) read, more importantly, the book is filled with relevant, useful strategies and original information that will ACTUALLY help professional women who aspire to make big, impressive career leaps.

It was funny because, as I'm reading along ... nodding, nodding, agreeing, agreeing .... It occurred to me:

GOSH, I could have used this book 10 years ago! :) Any which way, it's a great read for anyone working to move up in business, but spot-on for women in their late '20s and early '30s who are ready to blossom in big ways.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book will change your perspective, every working woman should read it! 11. Oktober 2013

I am excited to review this book because of the direct impact it had on my situation.
I am a working mom which is challenging in it's own right but to make it even more so, I decided to go into the construction industry. I had the attitude Kate talks about in her book that "they" will see how hard I work and reward me, or I didnt want "them" to think I was greedy or not like me so I didnt ASK for a lot. I have been working in this field for the past 20 years with that attitude. I had read all of the staple books, "How to Win Friends and Influence People", Nice Girls Dont Get the Corner Office", "Lean In", Dale Carnegie and Stephen Covey books, and many many more. Some of the things I read made sense and some I even applied. After reading Kate's book I immediately went out and bought 3 more copies, one for each niece and one for my daughter in law. While I really hate to sound like a stalker fan, I have to admit that I have been listening to Kate's book on audio every morning, on my commute, for the past month. It is giving me insight on a daily basis and I am making some rewarding changes to my thinking! Love, love, love it! In fact I recently told my mom that no other book as had this big of an impact on me since the Bible (dramatic I know).

It's a little focused on the magazine world, but I still found it pretty applicable. I'd recommend it mostly for interns and people just graduating college.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Well written, but self-indulgent 21. November 2012
Von Reader1 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is great if you want to know how Ms. White achieved success. She is certainly not shy about telling all of us how wonderful she is. I found the writing style too informal- it felt like reading a too-long magazine article... probably a result of her profession. It all sounded so condescending. The reader has to try very hard to glean any useful information between the egotistical rantings, which are only thinly veiled as well-meaning advice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Advice for Gutsy Girls (for the most part) 1. Mai 2013
Von Kate E. Stephenson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Kate White proves that her 14-year reign as editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine was earned through her practical approach to business and life--and not just her beautiful blond looks. White crafts this book cunningly, packing the foundations of a successful career succinctly into 368 pages. A queen of sound bites, you can open randomly to any page and find such sage advice as:

"Just shut up" in reference to how to recognize your gut feelings but great advice generally
"Find your idea zone" in terms of making a creativity-generating space for yourself, and
"See the sexy side of change"... what a twist on that usually dreaded event.

While some of her commentary is undeniably superficial and perhaps on some levels unpractical for some (sorry, Ms. White, I still can't afford a Coach bag--little thing called student loans take priority), even those moments when White slips into couture speak, she opens the window wide into the world that many young professionals aspire to, allowing us to poke our heads in and maybe even snatch out a few things per her advice: "Remember: just because no one has invited you to take something, doesn't mean you can't." And there's plenty here to take.

At the heart of I Shouldn't Be Telling You This is one idea: R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Here we find out what it means to Kate White. The common thread through all the chapters returns to a three-pronged idea: Respect others (especially your elders), respect yourself, and respect your goals. With these tenets securely in place, the negativity sometimes associated with ballsy women is negated, and instead of brash and brassy, tenacious and titillating become the words associated with the gutsy girl.

While I don't subscribe to all of Ms. White's notions--obsequiousness has never been one of my virtues--the overarching messages here are worthwhile... Speaking out of her own experience and those of other power women, White creates a blueprint of sorts for success. However, we all know everything makes sense in retrospect. Kate admits that while she was on the road it didn't always seem to be leading to her current destination. So I take every word of this tome with a grain of salt--but even this cynic will admit that my sodium intake here is less than normal. This stuff makes sense.
