As a young(ish) professional in the corporate world, I am spoken to often on topics such as professionalism and career development. Having been with the same company for six years, my coworkers have witnessed many of my mistakes throughout my career. Reading this book helped me drop my perfectionist obsessions just a little bit and forgive some of those past mistakes. It's a helpful reminder for all that progress doesn't come without stumbling along the way.

I wish they could hand this out to every female highschool graduate. My generation was raised to be perfect to compete with men/to be successful. A mistake =failure. NOT TRUE! Sometimes the more mistakes we make, if we learn from them, the faster we get it right. ( )

A revolutionary idea --- talk about mistakes and what you learned from them! And then ask well-known women to contribute! Great premise executed well. I enjoyed reading about the various experiences, backgrounds and professions and could see the commonality of professional women navigating organizational and relational challenges. The chapters that I found most helpful 25 years into my career are the ones about giving oneself time to really understand what will make one happy at work and life -- and that this can be a trial and error process.

I give this 3.5 stars because I found it to read exactly like a collection of short essays without much narrative thread or overarching theme besides "tell your story," leaving it feeling a little choppy. Nevertheless, a great set of essays, especially for younger women who are starting their careers. Some very good advice and storytelling in a time that this doesn't happen collectively.

Please note that this review is provided as part of the LibraryThing early reviewer program and reflects my honest opinion of the publication. ( )

"Mistakes I Made at Work" is a book of 25 short vignettes of successful (yet imperfect) women who are brave enough to share mistakes they've made in their careers. Some share stories of discovery, while others admit to huge failures on the job. Ms. Bacal knits their stories together thoughtfully and sensitively.

As a woman with nearly 28 years of industry experience, I didn't think I had much to learn from this book, but I found similarities in my work experiences and learned new ways to approach challenging situations. "Mistakes I Made at Work" is an inspiring companion to professionals of all ages. ( )
