About the book - Nice Girls Just Don't Get It

Dr. Lois Frankel, author of the international million-copy bestseller Nice Girl’s Don’t Get the Corner Office, has teamed up with lawyer and negotiation expert Carol Frohlinger to show women everywhere how to assert themselves and communicate what they want—whether they’re dealing with demanding friends and difficult bosses or scummy landlords and nosy neighbors. By the time you’ve finished reading Nice Girls Just Don’t Get It, you will have learned how to:

Get your husband to do his fair share of the household chores – without being made to feel like a nag
Inform your boss that you’ll be taking your well-deserved vacation – instead of asking him or her for permission
Send back a meal that isn’t prepared the way you’d ordered it
Be willing to permanently and decisively end a relationship – whether romantic, personal, or professional – when the other person continually behaves in a way that is unacceptable
Discuss calmly with your mother-in-law about who will host Christmas dinner
Stop overextending yourself by taking on all the unpleasant tasks no one on your volunteer board, or your team at work will go near – just because you want to be liked by the others
Confront a colleague who is shirking responsibility or taking credit for your work
Politely decline when a friend asks you to do an unreasonably large favor – without feeling the need to apologize or explain yourself
Give yourself permission to change your mind about a commitment you made early on in a relationship – like a tacit agreement that you would be the one to stay home with your future children – and effectively communicate your decision
Set boundaries for pushy or meddlesome friends or relatives
Persuade a school principle to move your child into a more desirable classroom, without worrying about building up ill will or upsetting the other parents
Convince a sales person to reduce a fee, waive a surcharge, or honor a store credit
Firmly but politely bow out of an extravagant vacation to celebrate a friend’s birthday that you simply can’t afford – without feeling guilty about it
Question a doctor’s course of treatment or request a second opinion, instead of simply going along in order to be a “good” patient
Set firm rules for your children, and resist the urge to relax them to avoid an argument
