Review quote

"White offers straight-shooting career advice to women at all stages of their professional lives...her advice is useful and delightfully no-nonsense. A smart, savvy guide for working women looking to climb the professional ladder and maintain positions of power." -- Kirkus Reviews "This is NOT your mother's plodding, nose-to-the-grindstone, put-on-a-power-suit career guide. 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 "Kate's fierce courage and determination make this book a witty, fun, and refreshingly blunt read for career women-teachers and CEOs alike!" -- Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host and author of Knowing Your Value "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 "It will come as no surprise that White, the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, would write a career guide that's lively, funny, and rife with quick-read tips. White's enthusiasm and verve combine with tales of challenges and successes from a fascinating career....An energetic, inspiring career memoir." -- Publishers Weekly "White's advice is smart and pithy-and maybe I shouldn't be telling you this, but guys can get plenty from this book, too." -- Reader's Digest
