Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the best books I've read on gaining insight into human behavior in the office. This book has no flowery words, no consultant-speak. It's practical down to earth advice on the behavior of people and most importantly, how to detect the behavior and the best ways to deal with it. It is also very non-judgmental in that it matter of factly points out the behaviors and how to deal with it. It's of great value even to the a-political type who doesn't want to deal with politics in the office, but wonders why things go the way they do (and appear to be very non-sensical). On the downside, I believe that the book could start on Chapter 6. I found the first 5 chapters to be an explaination of the obvious. It's also expensive for a paperback. But this book is worth it.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the top three books I've read on office politics, and I've read at least a hundred of them. From information on how to wage your own campain to how to avoid being buried by savvy players, this book provides a wealth of information. Many of the books on this topic simply re-hash the same information over and over. Cubicle Warfare has tactics I've never seen anywhere else. Useful, practical, real information can be found in this book. Check out the section on security and electronic doors for a new way to use a balloon. Great book

Format: Paperback
The author describes the types of enemies you'll face, their probable tactics and countermeasures you can take. Some of those tactics are quite nasty. This is the type of skill you need to move up the corporate food chain. The Pointy-Haired Boss would not stand a chance.

Format: Paperback
I could never understand why so many people did so many counterproductive things in the workplace. I was brought up to have integrity & work hard (& thought that's what other people were like). This booked helped explain the motives & reasoning behind behavior I had previously found baffling. Understanding the tactics & motives of political players in the workplace is the first step in coping with them (instead of just being cannon fodder). This book isn't perfect & won't solve all your problems, but it's a good start. I recommend everyone read this book, even if you don't think workplace politics effects you.
