Five Stars I enjoyed reading “One Sip at a Time: A Memoir by Rita Grisman with Loralyn Mears which I found to be a very moving and intriguing story about the life of Rita Grisman born on a farm in the Great Depression and who later became an advertising executive of a major corporation in New York City. I also thought this story is an excellent inspirational book for all women seeking ways to cope with and succeed in a male-dominated business. I especially liked this excerpt, “Sandy was a very tough boss and truly demanding. I was the buffer between him and Flora. Despite Sandy’s no-nonsense reputation, we got along quite well, and some co-workers surmised he was taken with me, but I paid little attention to how others viewed me. Men or women. Lust or disgust: whether they lusted after or disgusted by what I wore, said or did, it never crossed my mind to think about what they thought. I came to work to do my job…” In my opinion, the book is presented in a straightforward and very intelligent manner. Yet I found it very entertaining, humorous, exciting and full of insight into the life of a very intelligent and successful woman. I loved the pictures and the way Loralyn Mears organized this wonderful, very educational and inspiring story. Again, I believe not only women will benefit from this book, but men can learn a lot from this story on how intelligent women think in the workplace. Very well done!
