Book Review: "Take this Book to work" by Tory Johnson & Robyn Freedman-Spizman

 
In a quest to invest in my career I stumbled on this great book! "Take This Book To Work" by Tory Johnson & Robyn Freedman-Spizman has proven to be a save all for me. It's a great guide for addressing difficult career decisions, life changes, and personal gain.

My favorite sections in the book include but are not limited to:
  1. "How to ask about a position's salary without divulging your salary history.
  2. How to ask to be considered for positions outside of stereotypical roles.
  3. How to ask for company-sponsored child care.
  4. How to ask for feedback on an idea without losing credit.
  5. How to ask for a day off to attend to a child's needs.
The author(s) do a great job teaching you office, interview and networking etiquette. They include a few funny pointers like "How to ask a co-worker to stop wearing strong perfume" or "How to ask a co-worker to clean up after themselves"....priceless. 

Johnson & Spizman made sure to cater this book to women as we often don't have guidance in our career or our path to choosing a career. I enjoyed the direct language and advice that is relevant to our current times.
Overall good read and great gift for those wanting to take their career by the horns!
