The Amazing Adventures of Working Girl is a terrific gift idea for the new college grad. Also for thirty-somethings. Even forty-somethings.

In fact, every woman who has ever wanted, needed, lost, quit, hated, or loved a job will find something useful in The Amazing Adventures of Working Girl.

Promise.

Each of the 59 chapters tells a true story from one of Working Girl’s 59 jobs. Like the time she typed the same letter 535 times. Or modeled bustiers for overweight Frenchwomen. Or got paid only $5 for an entire summer’s work.

Each of the 59 chapters offers advice, such as: How to deal with criticism. What to do if you lose your job. Why risk-taking is good. How to avoid disappointment. What to do if your co-workers are evil or crazy or both. How to quit a job.

Many of the chapters include a job survival tip from people other than Working Girl.
