For Women Only: What You Need To Know About the Inner Lives Of Men
By Shaunti Feldhahn

As simple as we might like to think men are, it’s evident that we have no idea what’s going on in a man’s mind. If you’ve ever wondered why your significant other acts strangely or freaks out on you for what you think is “no reason,” this book might help you get to the bottom of what’s really going on.

After interviewing 1,000 men, one of which was her husband, Shaunti Feldhahn reveals what most men don’t know how to say. And it isn’t just limited to significant others; this book will help you better understand every man you deal with, whether it’s a colleague, a nephew or a friend. We always knew that men think much differently than we do; now we can finally figure out what it is they’re thinking and what we can do about it.

Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make
By Lois P. Frankel

Frankel attempts to address the “girly” things women do in the boardroom that sometimes discredit them as heavy hitters in the workplace. Unfortunately, she doesn’t address the fact that being outspoken and “unfeminine” would make a woman quite unpopular in the workplace as well.

The book does offer some insight to some mistakes that women make that hinder their progress in the workplace, such as unconscious body language and constantly apologizing, and helps them to stop pointing the finger and look within. But she unfortunately does not talk about the delicate balance between being a professional and a woman.
