Ask for it: How women can use the power of negotiation to get what they really want by Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever.

Review: This fascinating book describes how women can learn to do what men have been doing all along–asking for what they want. The authors found that many women were reluctant to negotiate starting salaries, raises, bonuses etc. We often have a tendency to think that our supervisors and peers will automatically recognize our hard work and will reward us accordingly, and then feel frustrated when this is not always the case. However, this book teaches us that we can ask for what we want and need in the workplace and in our personal lives, and gives us the tools with which to do it. A must-read!

    Linda Babcock’s earlier work: “Women Don’t Ask” is also brilliant. It changed how I view pretty much everything in my career. I also highly recommend that one, especially to every woman who is a junior in college.
