Power is Not a 4-Letter Word:

Power is Not a 4-Letter Word looks at the way that women normally perceive power. Although usually women consciously want to get ahead in our careers and be happy in our personal lives, often unconsciously they sabotage ourselves so that they have more difficulties achieving their goals and dreams. The author states that erroneous perception of power is often at the heart of this damaging action. Specifically, women often underrate their own power while overestimating the power of other individuals. With this situation in mind, the author presents a number of exercises that direct the reader towards an understanding of her own specific power issues and then leads her towards addressing and overcoming these issues.

Though many women power and women in business books have been written, Power is Not a 4-Letter Word is unique in several ways. First, this book looks directly at the way that women perceive power. Many similar books only touch on this factor leaving many women feeling divided by the discrepancies between men with power and women with power. Secondly, this book addresses these discrepancies leaving the reader with a new understanding of her own needs and how to achieve these needs. Thirdly, this book examines the interaction of power not only within the workplace but in every potential aspect of a women's life. Thus, the reader can use the concepts in this book to better every part of her life.
