I commend The Book Review for the Sept. 6 review of my book, "Women Vs. Women: The Uncivil Business War."
I appreciate the obvious depth of reviewer Ivan Strenski's concern for my subject--women holding one another back from achieving the highest strata of their career potential--and the candor with which he stated his opinions. Realizing that the idea of women hurting women might be considered harsh by some, I intended my style to be "comfortable." The review attested to my success on that score. Being semi-labeled "flip" and "hip" in Los Angeles is quite an accolade for an Orange County lass whose paragraphs are often short. I want readers to be able to take Strenski's advice easily, which is to, "Page briskly through hypnotic litanies . . . wolf down . . . grab basic good sense. . . ."
