In The Myth of the Nice Girl, Fran Hauser deconstructs the negative perception of "niceness" that many women struggle with in the business world. If women are nice, they are seen as weak and ineffective, but if they are tough, they are labeled a bitch. Hauser proves that women don't have to sacrifice their values or hide their authentic personalities to be successful.

I very much enjoyed this book. As a young professional woman in a position of moderate authority, I have been searching for tips to help get people to take me seriously without coming across as overly aggressive, which was my default reaction before I read this. Fran does a great job of giving scenarios and examples, and I've taken away a lot from this book that I have already successfully put into practice in the workplace. Thanks, Fran!
