I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This: Success Secrets Every Gutsy Girl Should Know

“Kate’s fierce courage and determination make this book a witty, fun, and refreshingly blunt read for career women—teachers and CEOs alike!” –Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host and author of Knowing Your Value

“Whether you are a just-hatched college grad or a sacred elder in need of an occupational overhaul, Kate White can help. The editor in chief of Cosmo for 14 years, White combines the story of her own career path with interviews and research to impart sensible lessons about getting ahead in the world while still having a personal life.” –USA TODAY (3.5 out of 4 stars)

“This is not your mother’s plodding, nose-to-the-grindstone, put-on-a-power-suit career guide. Kate White gives us her witty and wise secret sauce to fast-tracking your career, thinking big, having fun, and getting the money you deserve—all while pursuing your passion.” –Claire Shipman, ABC News correspondent and co-author of Womenomics

“I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This packs a powerful punch: Ms. White covers every possible topic the up-and-coming female executive will need to tuck into her Prada portfolio. This book should be on every career-minded woman’s bookshelf dog-eared and well read.” –Judith Reveal, New York Journal of Books

“White’s advice is smart and pithy—and maybe I shouldn’t be telling you this, but guys can get plenty from this book, too.” –Dawn Raffel, Reader’s Digest

“It will come as no surprise that White, the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, would write a career guide that’s lively, funny, and rife with quick-read tips. White’s enthusiasm and verve combine with tales of challenges and successes from a fascinating career. This as well as stories of celebrities and successful women make the book an energetic, inspiring career memoir.” –Publisher’s Weekly

“In this follow-up to her bestseller Why Good Girls Don’t Get Ahead…but Gutsy Girls Do (1996), Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief White (The Sixes, 2011, etc.) offers straight-shooting career advice to women at all stages of their professional lives…her advice is useful and delightfully no-nonsense. A smart, savvy guide for working women looking to climb the professional ladder and maintain positions of power.” –Kirkus
