Sisterhood, Knowledge, Integrity, Respect, Tenacity and Substance = SKIRTS. Marshawn′s all–woman entrepreneurial team won Season Four onThe Apprentice . Her advice here is promoted as "savvy, shrewd, and straightforward" for "today′s sassy yet sensible modern woman." The chapters themselves each start with a c–word, such as Confidence, Class, Captivation, and offer their own subcategories of acronym–based advice, all of which may crowd the reader with too many disparate concepts, from "The Four Ds of Branding Mistakes" to "T.A.G.S. #1: Target Your TALENTS" and "Lessons for ME (Motivations & Empowerment)." Readers who absorb the book in small portions may find just the advice they seek for a specific challenge. (Library Journal, December 15, 2008)
