"Say 'yes' to your dreams and the long-term potential of your organization. How? By learning how to say 'no.' The No Club is a long overdue manifesto on gender equality in the workplace, a practical playbook with tips you can put into action immediately, and the story of four women whose collective wisdom on how to sustain personal success is simply priceless."

Angela Duckworth, New York Times bestselling author of Grit

In many organizations, women are in the minority but end up doing the majority of the thankless jobs. This important book helps women learn when and how to say no, and should be a wakeup call to management: give every man a yellow pad and tell them to learn to take notes. Better yet, change the way that work is allocated and rewarded.

Richard Thaler, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics and New York Times bestselling co-author of Nudge

“Unfair treatment of women in the workplace has been well-reported, but there’s a lack of available literature on what women are actually supposed to do about it. The No Club is the answer we’ve been waiting for—these experts and researchers explain what to look for, how to advocate for yourself, and how to empower others to do the same. This is an achievable and overdue call to action for the system to change.”

—Emily Chang, bestselling author of Brotopia: Breaking Up the Boys’ Club of Silicon Valley

"I am in a No Club inspired by the authors of this amazing book! Now, all of us can go behind the scenes of their journey, which will leave you feeling seen and guided. The No Club is packed with examples, advice, and research. I'll be recommending it as essential reading to colleagues, students, and friends."

Dolly Chugh, author of The Person You Mean to Be and professor at the NYU Stern School of Business

“This is a critical read for women who inevitably find themselves balancing their personal goals with endless dead-end tasks in the workplace. This book not only gives women validation to say ‘no’ to tedious work, but clearly lays out how caving to these pressures only serves to derail their full potential.”

Ana Kasparian, executive producer and host of The Young Turks
