A Merger of Equals, at its heart, is the story of the challenges faced in our highly competitive business world, particularly for women. Told from the perspectives of both females and males, it tackles head-on the cutthroat business practices, outdated management committees, struggles of women in the work place, careers and family, artful negotiation, friendships (male and female), work life balance and even romance.
When I first realized the book was 477 pages, I was convinced I would never get through it. However, the more I read, the more I wanted to read. Quite quickly, I just could not put this book down. The author...does a remarkable job of telling this story with humor, honesty and insight. The dialogue is masterful. This would make a great made-for-TV movie.
A must read for every woman moving from college into career. The rest of us will find our lives reflected on many of the pages.
Loved it, in spite of its length! In fact, I really wouldn't mind meeting the author.

If I were you, I'd read A Merger of Equals and meet Jane and Charlie. I'd also do what I did - add up all the things in the book you've experienced, seen or wish you'd experience. Then I'd pass the book along to your favorite people and ask them to do the same. Once several of you and your friends have read the book, I'd gather around and compare notes. I think it would be kind of fun to see just how many people have experienced the truths of this book - but kept it hush-hush - because you were taught proper Emily Post Etiquette - if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything.
Well, I do have something nice to say: Read Debra Snider's A Merger of Equals. You'll be glad you did.
