Being a woman in the workplace is fraught with contradictions. Satisfied with your salary? You’re unambitious. Ask for a pay rise? Bit pushy. Juggle work and family? No promotion for you, mummy. Just focused on your work? You’re a selfish workaholic. What’s a sensible, successful woman to do?!
Answer: Buy this book and apply its wisdom in the office, obviously. Packed with tips on how to act to maximise your non-threateningness, this is the ultimate guide to smashing the glass ceiling without fracturing the fragile self esteem of your male co-workers along the way.
The poor besuited babies might get upset by your brilliance if you’re not gentle with them. Luckily this little gem has plenty of things you can do and say to spare their feelings. For example, say 'I'm just thinking out loud here, but...' rather than 'I have an idea'. And never send an email without loads of smiley faces or they might think of you as serious rather than sweet.
If all else fails, it comes with a free set of moustaches you can cut out to blag your way to getting the respect you deserve. Nobody is going to patronise you with a fat handlebar on your pretty little face.
