DON'T BE A MIRANDA!

book It could happen to the best of us. One minute you're the beleaguered assistant, and then the next thing you know, you're in charge. Problem is, no one ever tells us how to be a boss, and too many of our role models in the office are either men, or...well...bitches. Women still don't have much of a road map when it comes to taking charge. Until now. In the award-winning book The Girl's Guide to Being a Boss (Without Being a Bitch) Caitlin Friedman and Kimberly Yorio break it down for us. You'll learn how to be powerful without being possessive, how to be opinionated without being brassy, and how to have a strong voice without micromanaging. Don't believe the hype—you don't have to change to be successful: nice girls CAN get the corner office!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Now in paperback! A delightfully dishy novel about the all-time most impossible boss in the history of impossible bosses.

Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, lands the job "a million girls would die for." Hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine, Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym. With breathtaking ease, Miranda can turn each and every one of these hip sophisticates into a scared, whimpering child.

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA gives a rich and hilarious new meaning to plaints about "The Boss from Hell." Narrated in Andrea's smart, refreshingly disarming voice, it traces a deep, dark, devilish view of life at the top only hinted at in gossip columns and over Cosmopolitans at the trendiest cocktail parties. From sending the latest, not-yet-in-stores Harry Potter to Miranda's children in Paris by private jet, to locating an unnamed antique store where Miranda had at some point admired a vintage dresser, to serving lattes to Miranda at precisely the piping hot temperature she prefers, Andrea is sorely tested each and every day--and often late into the night with orders barked over the phone. She puts up with it all by keeping her eyes on the prize: a recommendation from Miranda that will get Andrea a top job at any magazine of her choosing. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, however, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether or not the job is worth the price of her soul.
