In her book, Evans, now retired, attempted to define the "unwritten rules" in business. Her premise is that to get ahead in today's corporate environment, women need to understand and "play" by the rules written by men. Evans believes in the bottom line, "When it comes to business, most women are at a disadvantage. We're forced to guess, to improvise, to bluff. That is why so few of us play the game well, and even fewer find it fulfilling" (p. 7).
