Women Vs. Women: The Uncivil Business War

Tara Roth Madden, Author AMACOM/American Management Association $17.95 (266p) ISBN 978-0-8144-5900-3
Madden engages and educates readers with her well-documented findings that women wage an ""uncivil war'' against each other in the marketplace. From her interviews with working women at all levels, the author concludes that hopes for supportive sisterhood are proving vain. Some women stymie themselves, fearing to go ``where the men are,'' lest they fail. Others are inhibited by jealous competitors of their own sex. And men, on their part, occupy ``reserved seating: ringside at the office catfight.'' Madden, a freelance writer, offers trenchant advice to women and their company's officials on peace-mongering, suggestions that seem reasonable for success in improving relations in the workplace with benefits to all. 40,000 ad/promo; author tour.
