    1. I really did not enjoy this book First, it was braggy And not in an I am accomplished so you should respect my thoughts on this subject way, but straight up just braggy Second, I thought the author talked down to woman and made comparisons between men and woman that were completely outdated and inapporopriate Third, I don t think the author did a very good good job using Sun Tzu s Art of War and translating it to a context that would work for woman This book just did not work There are so many b [...]


    2. For most of my life I ve been a misogynist whilest being unaware Until I hit my second puberty and period cramps started feeling like kittens scratching in my womb, my mood swings increasingly unexpected and frequent, and since I began started working in a male dominated and oriented environment, that I started rethinking about the struggles of being a woman Then I became the armpit hair growing feminist Just joking, I was just a keyboard activist who couldn t find her epilator I have since resu [...]


    3. Having read Thick Face Black Heart I expected this book to be equally as insightful I was disappointed.I am sure there are women who would find it useful but the target audience was not me Having read Sun Tzu s Art of War and parried with many a cunning, artful or skillful man in my own journey and both lost and won I found the perspective from which Chin Ning Chu wrote a little too much the victim for my liking Still, this is a personal perspective and in saying that, I found the odd gem here a [...]


    4. Just superb A very helpful book specifically written translated for women, though men can definitely benefit from it too It s not something that you will read then relegate to your shelf to eat dust You would want this book on a place where you can easily reach for it, then read snippets again Highly recommended


    5. the art of war was recommended to me, so I saw this one at the store and thought why not it has been helpful but I only read bits and parts then set it down and continue pondering what it is telling me.



    6. I m on page 7 I m already a little pissed at how she talks about women AND men Men are brutes and women are wily beguilers because of centuries of subjugation Maybe she needs a history book because, rules or not, women as an entire group are not these delicate, live to please flowers she s making them out to beI picked this up because I wanted another interpretation of The Art of War I most certainly have that If you can manage to lay aside the June Cleaver era notion of femininity, though, ther [...]


    7. I was having some trouble leading projects at work when a friend who is successful at navigating the corporate world suggested that I read The Art of War This classic Chinese book by Sun Tzu is a must read at business school apparently It s also a cryptic text that, outside of a class, might be difficult to interpret.So when I happened upon the Art of War for Women while browsing the library catalogy, I thought, Sweet, the cliff notes version I should some day go back and read the real Art of Wa [...]


    8. Non so come sia finito nella mia libreria Dopo anni e anni, vedendolo l ma mai neppure sfiorandolo, mi sono detto non forse il mio stile, ma diamogli un opportunit E invece questo libro l ennesima prova che la spazzatura editoriale esisteva abbondantemente molto prima dell avvento dell autopubblicazione Approfitta del filone per donne , di gran successo economico ma di scarso contenuto, ammicca ai torti storici degli uomini nei confronti delle donne, snatura il messaggio dell Arte della Guerra d [...]


    9. If you see the world as a place where things can be split simplistically into black white, yes no, true false then this book will speak to you.If you are instead the kind of person who sees the world as a place where there are many degrees to be found in between then it is my opinion that this book will be a great disappointment to you It wasn t bad enough that I want the time back I spent reading it but I would be lying if I didn t express that I have deep regrets that my time could of been bet [...]


    10. This was a good read, but left me wanting I think this was a natural outcome of trying to boil down a very complex work into a thin and easy to read volume.The strongest points were Her list of 8 ways to repackage womanhood However, this might make some feminists heads spin Strategies for overcoming office jealousyDiscontentment as the root of creativitySelling yourself first, then your ideas


    11. listening to this via audio on my daily commute it has become so useful in my day to day interactions thus far looking forward to learning about myself as I continue to listenFinished today I learned that the true art in winning any battle in life or work is having the strength to know how to identify your strengths and weaknesses and what resources to use to enhance and or compensate them


    12. Great cliff note version of the ancient Art of War bookI tried reading the original Art of War a few times and found it boring and frustrating to try to make modern sense of ancient thoughts This book delivered in clarifying the original book and framing the ideas for women and the challenges that we face One aspect that was distracting were the numerous grammar and spelling errors in the electronic version This weakness lended the book less credibility for me.


    13. The Art of War for Women by Chin Ning Chu Someone on my flist recommended this It s extremely good AN impressive amount of scholarship went into it she went back and translated the earliest known copy of Sun Tzu s work and she and her editors read four or five others Her points are well taken I m going to have to read it several times It can be as impenetrable as Art of War itself Her writing is clear enough It s that the book is very meaty lots to digest.


    14. If you work in a business environment such as sales, management, or are a CEO this book is perfect for you It takes a bit of work to translate for your individual and particular situation if you are not in a business position It s great for trying to find balance and a sense of peace in yourself in order to succeed Sun Tzu also emphasizes and teaches you to know yourself, know your enemy, and know your environment.


    15. It was not very helpful Lots of advice and facts given in this book are pretty well known Even though the book is geared towards a female audience, I was surprised the book didn t address a lot of feminist scholarship or studies on women in the workplace, specifically, the problems and how to overcome them I wouldn t recommend it It did, however, get me really interested in the Art of War by Sun Tzu and now I am going to read that


    16. This was an interesting book, definitely worth the read There were passages that made me think of work situations which I have encountered, and one chapter in particular that made me question my own goals and philosophy I found the philosophical base of the text to be better founded than More Plato, Less I can t say that I d prefer to read book as opposed to a novel, but it s good to mix it up sometimes.


    17. Difficult book for me to read I made it through the first few chapters, but kept putting it down, then reading a few pages, skipping a few Finally, I gave up this week I didn t find this book super interesting or helpful A few nuggets on strategy and building alliances with key colleagues, but time to admit defeat and move on.


    18. This book took ancient Taoist concepts and related them to practical business solutions At times the book seemed a bit over simplified with only a few pieces of the original Art of War text I still enjoyed the stories and interpretation I think any businesswoman who reads it would take away something positive from the text, and I think that s what makes a good book.


    19. Don t let the title fool you This is an excellent book rooted in ancient Chinese war principles that s actually about winning without fighting The beauty of this version is it s adapted for women in busieness.


    20. Wow I want to become a female warrior in this modern society that s why I read this book It s not easy to apply but it is definitely worth it There are some problems I have in my own work and this book really unveils the solution Highly recommended P


    21. There s some great advice, however , other than a few notations here and there this one just didn t compel me If you like self help try it maybe you will retain useful information than I got from it.


    22. Very complex Found the information useful while reading each example but think it would be hard to apply in real life as there are so many scenarios to remember for each approach Also felt that while she was attempting to break stereotyping of women, she often upheld stereotypes of men.


    23. Enjoyed the book Took me a little bit to get into it but once I understood the how the book should be perceived, I enjoyed it One area builds on another but then once you have read it all, you can go back to any place and just use that area.


    24. It s not a feel good book, but it will make you feel good after reading it I m adding this book to the Women s Business Book Club of Philadelphia s book list it s probably one of the most practical business books I ve ever read.


    25. I will first say that I have not yet read The Art of War Then I will say that my impression of Chu s The Art of War for Women is that it is a rather cheesy rip off If I do read the original Art someday, I hope it is not as cheesy.


    26. This book offered some great in depth examples of what women go through in the workplace and has some excellent strategies and tips on how to maneuver them in the work place I m so glad I picked this book up from the library.


    27. This is my 3rd time through this book I ve found using these strategies now come naturally for me not only at work but in everyday life This book has helped me gain the knowledge needed to place myself a step or two in ahead of those I most need to believe in me.


    28. self help books yuck yuck yuck somebody actually thought i would like to read this, and bought me this book for christmas to make it all worse, i tried to read it the biggest mistake i ve ever made.


    29. I m no longer wearing my glass slippers to work This book is a must read for all women who were brought up to be nice I m learning that we can be nice and powerful at the same time, even when working with people who don t place much value on niceness.
