"Kathleen Archambeau sets out to help professional women navigate the challenges in striving for corporate success, while maintaining some semblance of a balanced life...Archambeau does hit on some important issues. For instance, she stresses the importance of team building and the willingness to share credit at work, rather than scheming for individual credit (what goes around comes around)...(and) also offers expertise on work productivity, networking, salary negotiations and other work-life issues. Those who...absorb her substantive insights will come away with some valuable advice."
