The Male Factor: The Unwritten Rules, Misperceptions, and Secret Beliefs of Men in the Workplace (Expanded Edition: includes a Christian perspective.)
Publisher's Summary: Many talented women today risk undermining their careers without realizing it, simply because they don’t understand how they are perceived by their male colleagues and customers. In What Men really Think, best-selling author Shaunti Feldhahn reveals the inner reality behind men’s views — the unspoken expectations that no man would dare to publicly acknowledge, and no woman would learn from an HR department.
Since I only work part-time, and in a woman-dominated field (nursing home) at that, I was curious as to what I would take away from this book. I found that much of it I already knew... for example, the fact that most men support a woman's choice to work or stay at home, but they are frustrated when a woman can't seem to make up her own mind and the work "team" suffers because she waffles back and forth on her priorities. Many men find themselves uncertain how to best deal with a woman who wears her emotions on her sleeve at work... but then again, I think many men have that problem outside of the workplace, too! ;)
If this sounds like a book that you would enjoy, you're in luck!

The Male Factor: The Unwritten Rules, Misperceptions, and Secret Beliefs of Men in the Workplace was provided in exchange for my honest review and participation on this book tour by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
I am attempting to post daily in January for NaBloPoMo's theme of "Best".
