A witty guide for women in the workplace

From waitresses to Wall Street brokers, as more and more women join the workforce, there is one truth about work they didn't expect and can't escape-it's often boring or overwhelming or sometimes both at once! As a result, career gals today are in desperate need of advice on how to make their jobs more fun, efficient, and satisfying. The helpful, humorous hints packed into Work It, Girl! show them how to do just that.

Divided into minichapters-each covering a single tip-this quick, clever read follows the course of a career chick's workday, from safe on-the-road makeup application to postwork massage and manicure. Inventive and irreverent workday survival strategies cover a range of issues, including navigating office stereotypes, lobbying for better vending machine treats, and working off mid-afternoon blahs with the ultimate desk butt crunch. An essential cubicle companion for every working woman who needs the occasional laugh to keep it all in perspective.

    I like this book. I'm halfway through it and have already put quite a few of the suggestions to use. I have been working full time now for five years, and am working a job that pays well, but isn't exactly intellectually stimulating. Sometimes your thoughts, like a job, grow stagnant. This book helps refresh those thoughts and gives you new ideas on how to revamp your job and make it more enjoyable; at the very least, more tolerable.

    I admit, these kind of books (how to be glamorous / how to stretch a penny / how to dress like a Prada girl on a gap budget / how to be basically fabulous) books are my downfall. I love them. I'm a sucker for a great "how to be chic and fabulous" book. I love the graphics, the helpful little tips, the entire gossipy feel of them."Work It, Girl : 101 Tips for the Hip Working Chick" by Wendy Burt and Erin Kindberg is a fun and friendly user's guide for those of us either just starting out - or in the middle of that first BIG job. With chapters such as :*The Breakfast of Champions*Bookworm in the Fast Lane - (the joy of audiobooks on the commute)*Relocation for a New Job - (how to get aquatinted to your new city)*Effective E-mailing*Kiss Me Kate - (tips for staying OUT of the office dating pool)*The Little Car That Couldn't (auto repair)This book covers every possible problem, question or insight into the world of the "chic" worker girl. It's a really lighthearted and fun user's guide and give some great and practical tips. A nice book for a gift or a quick ride on the subway to your new job. :)

    I found that this book was not what I had hoped it would be. The chapters are all very short, so it never goes much in depth on anything. A lot of the advice was really kind of obvious common sense. It can be a useful light overview of work-related topics, but don't expect anything really detailed.

    I typically like the light-hearted advice books (especially "The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love" and "The Go-Girl Guide: Surviving your 20s with Savvy, Soul, and Style"), but this one didn't compare. I expected great (or at least witty) advice about the working world and found small chapters without great advice. I agree with another reviewer that a lot of it is just common sense advice and it became boring a lot of the time. I would recommend other advice books instead.
