Summary "I Can't Believe She Did That! offers a new and compelling perspective on conflict and competition among women in the workplace. Nan Mooney explores how and why some women hurt each other on the job, and what we can do to begin cleaning up the mess. Based on real stories from real women, I Can't Believe She Did That! provides a social and cultural exploration of the often troubled and painful dynamics that unfold among women at work."
"Working together, women have fostered a breathtaking degree of positive change. But there is another side to the story. If women are to continue moving forward, the time has come to examine - honestly and unequivocally - our very human impulse to compete with, hurt, and even destroy one another to get what we want. In I Can't Believe She Did That! Nan Mooney provides insights on the emotional toll competition can take on working women and charts a path toward more productive and fulfilling relationships for professional women everywhere."--BOOK JACKET
