Reviews

Babcock and Laschever, contrary to their book's title, do ask a series of questions: Why do most women see a negotiation as an automatic fight instead of a chance to get what they deserve? Why are women afraid to ask for what they deserve? Why are women afraid to ask for what they want in the workplace? And perhaps most importantly, why donB9t women feel entitled to ask for it. . .? [A] great resource for anyone who doubts there is still a great disparity between the salary earnings of men and women in comparable professions
A highly readable book. . . . "Women Don't Ask" should be read by anyone with a fear of negotiating, male or female, and by managers who want a better understanding of how 47 percent of the work force confronts the workplace. -- Alan B. Krueger "The New York Times"
"Women Don't Ask" is not a straight recitation of findings--nor is it simply a "rant." It goes beyond well-known facts and offers concrete tips on how women can remedy the underlying problems and actually move ahead. The authors prescribe refreshingly specific methods of negotiation that they've seen work for even the most confrontationally-challenged women. -- Allison Nazarian "ForeWord Magazine"
"Women Don't Ask" offers important insights into the persistent economic gap between men and women. -- Dolores Kong "Boston Globe"
Neither a dry academic treatise nor a self-help book, this work puts forth a model for a society that respects women's communication strengths.
This thoughtful analysis could both benefit managers across industry lines and help women learn the importance of developing negotiating skills.
The first book to adequately explain the dramatic differences in how men and women negotiate and why women so often fail to ask for what they want at work (starting with equal pay). Every male manager in America should read it.
Clear, useful, and sensibly organized. . . . "Women Don't Ask" crisply describes the results of one study after another, fitting the puzzle pieces together to show how and why women are held backBand hold themselves back--from advancing both financially and in every other way. -- E.J. Graff "Women's Review of Books"
