Book Description

This book, first published in 1926, is the candid record of a woman’s experiences in the business world at the turn of the twentieth century. Finishing her career as an advertising executive – one of the first women to succeed in that industry – The author had experienced a fascinating life as a stenographer, and a clerk, being hired and fired and enduring the tedium of office life. Written with zest, shot through with shrewd and dispassionate comment on business life and practices, and filled with fascinating detail and anecdote, this autobiography is a remarkable record of an early business woman’s life.
