Book of the Month

The Book of the Month for April and May is I Wanted Fries with That: How to Ask for What You Want and Get What You Need by Amy Fish. Written by an ombuds, this book explores how to advocate for yourself.

"At some point in our lives, we’ve all experienced an injustice, large or small — a restaurant botching our lunch order or a boss who isn’t following the guidelines for workplace etiquette — and suffered in silence for fear of offending anyone. When we fail to speak up, however, we shortchange ourselves" (Google Books)

You can check this book out from our Staff Ombuds Office Library .
