    1. I am not usually a big fan of management or self-help books, but this is a truly fascinating insight into the way the games we play as children shape our minds and our socialisation and how this translates into different behaviours in the workplace.Might not help me so much in my career, but as a mother of girls it is incredibly insightful and thought-provoking

    2. Great read into how differently the two genders communicate, interact and build social organizations/hierarchies, and how miscommunication between them can cause frustration and even cost promotions.Highly recommend for anyone looking to go into the business world or is already in it but confused about "the game" taking place around them. This book not only clues you in to that it's being played at all, but why it exists and how to excel within it.Despite the title, Dr. Pat Heim wrote this book [...]

    3. If Deborah Tannen and a solid business coach decided to write a book, this would probably be it. Pat Heim has written a very interesting (and true!) book about how our social conditioning as women continues to hurt us in male-dominated and male-run businesses. Filled with specific explanations about the differing communication styles in the workplace, Heim teaches women "power strategies" that they can employ in order to play hardball and be successful in their careers. It's no secret that even [...]

    4. This book is phenomenally helpful in understanding the different ways men and women communicate. It frames the divide as one of culture - men are socialized to hierarchical, goal-directed games which lead them to interpret competition as stimulating and winning as all-important; women are socialized to flat, relationship-oriented play which leads them to view competition as dangerous and getting along with others all-important. As a consequence, women frequently communicate in ways that cause me [...]

    5. very interesting study of the differences between men and women in the workplace and how we are perceived by one another. it definitely made me think a lot about my own reactions and how to modify my behaviors just a little bit to play better in the workplace. one thing - especially - struck me. the idea that men can battle heavily on the field and then grab a beer afterward. that idea of - it isn't personal. there are no hard feelings. i think that this book must have been a total eye opener 10 [...]

    6. Hardball for women is not a male bashing book at all. the author describes gender differences arising from our upbringing. The author is in the healthcare field, which made the stores relate to my understanding as well. For example, girls play dolls. boys play football. the goal in dolls is to be friends at the end of the day - it's the process that's important. you cannot "win" dolls. the goal in football is to score. the process really isnt important. taking the same dolls and football analogy [...]

    7. I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this book at first. To be sure, some of the advice is way outdated (was published in 1992), such as the absolute pronouncement against women wearing pants at work. There was no mention of email or the internet, either, which was oddly funny to me. Overall, though, I think Heim did a bang-up job of explaining the differences between women and men at work and how those differences came about. While I the reliance on childhood games (ie sports-related ga [...]

    8. This book offered some helpful strategies for women in achieving success in the business world. The edition I read was last revised in the 1990s and I thought quite a bit of it was outdated. Also, it was a somewhat disheartening to read, given all the examples of how women could be/are seen as weaker or less effective in the workplace. However, overall it was a decent read and I found some chapters helpful

    9. I first bought this book at the beginning of my solo-career thinking that it would offer me a valuable advice on what needs to be done, and how to do it! I'm Majorly disappointed as it just went on venting about how hard women gets it in work environments without offering any real or usable strategies of how to overcome it. or at least deal with it.

    10. The best book about how to grow and understand the non-verbal language on business. Not only ideal for women, bit also for men working with women. It is not the typical feminist book that tells you to act as a guy in order to be successful in business as a woman. It goes very deep in how and why certain attitudes work for women that want to be on the top level.

    11. Some of the views are very outdated. The business world is advancing so fast and flat organisational structures are becoming the norm. Females do still have to work twice as hard but the idea of outright hierarchy is slowly dissipating

    12. I read an earlier edition of this book many years ago. I always recommend it to women starting out in male-dominated fields. Great discussion of the differences in the ways males and females are socialized and what that means in the workplace.

    13. This book contains some very interesting concepts, although some of them I believe are a little outdated. Worth the read though.

    14. A great read for women who would like some perspective on how habits and mannerisms from traditional female upbringing are perceived, and how they affect business communications and opportunities.

    15. For all women in any field- read this book, and then read it again. These are the lessons that no one seems to teach us along the way.

    16. When I read these "women in business books" I thought there were important. Almost 10 years later I find them insulting. Though I suppose they were a necessary step to get me where I am today.

    17. straightforwardbut nothing I hadn't already heard prior; wanted more "hardball" suggestions, especially to deal with difficult hierarchal issues

    18. It will be right there on the shelf with Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office 101 so I can refer to it when I need to.

    19. Just don't agree we have to act like men in the workplace. Helped to understand how and men do what they do though.
