#3 It’s About Time by Valorie Burton

This book really illuminated all the learned habits we pick up that sabotage us in life and our careers. We’re taught to be nice, to defer to those who seem like they have authority, to never negotiate and be happy with what we’re given… all these things are habits men don’t tend to learn, and they really set women back in their careers.
