Publisher's Summary

Do you remember when you had your first thought of corporate America and working there? A job of high importance came to mind, maybe even wearing a suit and working in a fancy office. The sad truth in the matter of this place is, although it has its perks and benefits, it has about as much politics and as many cliques as the high school cafeteria. When thinking about life after high school we always imagined that the real world wouldn't have as many barriers. The cool kids, although they were completely outnumbered by the kids that weren't, had the approval of the staff to lead and make decisions for the overall student body. You might remember being frustrated by this because these students weren't as bright or as knowledgeable as you or your peers about what they were running or leading. The staff's only job was to teach, and they ignored the many obstacles put in place by these cliques. One might laugh at the comparison of corporate America to high school, but to many who have lived it, they know it's a spot-on truth when comparing the politics involved in each.

Wish I had this 20 years ago.

Very insightful. It lays out the rules to survival in the corporate sector. It’s hard to refute the logic in the first 4 rules. Each rule has a very direct impact on the how to’s. Real world examples to help understand what the rules mean.

Good Stuff! Wish I had this out of college.

The Readers Digest version of the 48 Laws of Power. Everyone in public education should read this.
