Bitch? Please! How Nice Girls Can Succedd in a Bitch's World
Bitch? Please! How Nice Girls Can Succeed in a Bitch’s World by Megan Munroe

Being involved with a roller derby league means bitchiness is part of the shtick. Off the track, roller derby is a business and carrying that bitchiness isn’t business and personal transactions just isn’t cool.

I realize I’m probably too nice for the sport but I thought I was holding my own. Working in the tourism industry for the past 20 years, I have also crossed paths with my fair share of bitchy women and after reading, Bitch? Please! How Nice Girls Can Succeed in a Bitch’s World by Megan Munroe, I’ve realized I’m too nice and can learn to hold my own, both in my professional and personal lives by embracing the nice girl and using my strength.

We’re living in a world where mean girls rule. They make headlines daily whether on a national level or around the water cooler. These are the women who can’t complete a sentence without using the “B” word and are proud to be called a bitch. They’re the ones who disrespect others. They feel entitled to something rather than working hard to earn it. They tend to stomp on others to get what they want.

And then there are the rest of us. The nice girls. The gracious women who smile and who want to succeed but not at the cost of hurting others. We don’t see the world through rose-colored glasses but we use tact and address issues rather than personally attacking others. Being a nice girl is sometimes perceived as weak but Megan Munroe reminds readers this isn’t the case and advises how to succeed with niceness and power.

Bitch? Please! is Handbook for Nice Girls Movement
Bitch? Please! is hitting the market during a time when Americans are hungry for niceness and slowly saying goodbye to bitchiness. Why do I say this?

Let’s see, last fall, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart asked America to take it down a notch by hosting the Rally to Restore Sanity. Politicians are trying their darndest to be more civil toward each other and address issues rather than personally attacking each other. And, American Idol is without Simon Cowell and his nasty comments this season. From what I’ve seen of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, they are providing fresh, constructive commentary and at the same time, they aren’t sugarcoating the criticism.

Indeed, this may be the decade of nice girls making headlines for doing positive things and Bitch? Please! is the handbook for the movement. Munroe’s book identifies the bitch, presents scenarios on dealing with her and even offers quizzes at the end of each chapter on how to handle specific situations including professional and social. An appendix neatly summarizes each chapter and serves as a quick refresher on dealing with the “B.”

Honestly, I wish Bitch? Please! was around when I entered the workforce because it offers practical tips on how to deal with difficult women. I now wonder if I would be in a different place in my career if I had access to the advice. The book is an enjoyable read, almost as though it was written by a personal friend specifically for me. Moving forward, I’ll be implementing Munroe’s tips and embracing the nice girl image and hope you will, too.
