Penny Leyton is one smart sexy woman on her way to the top.Bridget Jones she certainly is not, but she has the same chaoticapproach to romance. Just as she is breaking through the glassceiling, her boss Dave Stockton hints at a workplace scandal. Ablaze with moral outrage, Penny realises too late that one of herown friends is implicated and that she herself is part of theproblem. Can she untangle herself from a hidden web of intrigueand save herself?
"When Rory first sent me his book to review, I sent him my advice for a happy life - always be in the pursuit of pleasure. One of the things I said was that I looked to men to be my friends and lovers but preferably not at the same time - good friends are forever, good lovers not necessarily so. I remember his response well. He said he could not imagine marrying anyone who he did not already consider his best friend. I, on the other hand, think everybody should be married once and then have the good fortune to get out! Rory swears by his marriage. I enjoy my exchanges with Rory and find many of his thoughts provocative.

does not just explore and critique the combustible situations that ignite the workplace, it dares to celebrate them. This novel is the story of a women standing on the edge of the precipice of her life, her humanity long lost. Will she take the right track in the face of adversity? It is now for me to know and for you the reader to find out... Here is a clue...there is affinity, lots of adventure and wonderful banter. Anyone who cares about love will give this book to a friend or lover, partner or spouse, sister or brother".

This is an exercise in reflexivity, critically evaluating my own work for the benefit of others. The way this book came into being may interest readers as much as the book itself. Embroiled in a 3 year study of workplace democracy, the importance of gender dynamics continually surfaced until - with the encouragement of fellow academics - a decision was made to change the theoretical contribution of my doctoral thesis. This book is *not* the thesis. It is, however, a popular style examination of the data and issues that pervaded the study, and presents some of the theory that will mark my contribution to the gender debate.In short, the book examines a range of issues related to organisation behaviour from the perspective that occupational segregation and norms of sexual behaviour are influenced more by the patterns and processes of attraction than domination. Domination does occur, but only during periods of serious relationship breakdown (which occurs far less frequently than attempts to develop attraction). The book, therefore, provides partial support for feminist claims by recognising and validating some of the social relations that develop in the workplace, but also provides a critique of feminism by illustrating the extent of women's power to control men, and the techniques they deploy. My hope - and this is for others to judge - is that this work will change the bedrock on which future gender theory will develop, and encourage a more inclusive (and less stereotype driven) debate about men's and women's power. If there is a weakness (for me) it is that I would have liked to spend more time broadening my reading before concluding the book. This will be addressed in future books and academic articles.
