Kate White—New York Times bestselling author, editor in chief of Cosmopolitan for fourteen years, and motivational speaker—shares her gutsy secrets to success in this witty, straight-talking new career guide for women.

Whether you've just settled into your first work cubicle and have no clue how to go after the success you crave, or you've already got a sweet little office but you aren't sure how to take your career to the next level, I Shouldn't Be Telling You This gives you all the secrets you need to become a success, go big with it, and then savor every second. It is jam-packed with insider strategies, interviews with women at the top of their game, and Kate's advice from her own career running five major magazines (including one of the bestselling women's magazines in the world, Cosmopolitan). She hows you how to break out of the pack, master the learning curve, make bold moves, and, ultimately, have the career you've always lusted for!

Kate shares five secrets every woman needs to know—how to:

• Land a Job You're Truly Passionate About
• Use "Bitch Envy" to Your Advantage
• Radiate Confidence and Get Buzzed About (Without Worrying What Other People Think)
• Ask for the Money You Want—and Get It
• Manage Your Career and Not Just Your Job (It's a Whole Different Ball Game!)

But more than anything, Kate says, you have to go big or go home—do what's unexpected and always keep your career trajectory in mind. It might be tackling a project that no one else is taking on and nailing it—then making sure your boss knows it. Or it might be developing a "golden gut" that will help you to break the rules the right way, so you always end up shining. In I Shouldn't Be Telling You This, Kate White shares the kinds of secrets no boss is ever likely to spill—all with her irreverent wit and candid style. You'll come away with the know-how you need—and you'll feel as though you've just gotten up from a fabulously dishy lunch!

Kate White has been the editor in chief of five magazines, includingCosmopolitan, and is theNew York Timesbestselling author of two thrillers and the Bailey Weggins mystery series. White is also the author of popular career books for women, including the bestsellingWhy Good Girls Don't Get Ahead . . . but Gutsy Girls Do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book I really enjoyed reading this book. I have read quite a few books and articles on similar topics but this book still provided some new things to consider. I like that Kate found a way to be straightforward without being too blunt or off-putting like some authors who are being "honest" for our own good. I would recommend this book to my friends. I'm even considering starting a book club at work and suggesting this as the first book that we read.
