Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is not one of those "self-improvement" books that beckon to a royal road that doesn't exist, or mislead readers into thinking that success is to be attained by the adoption of a few simple slogans and the practice of a few easy rules. It is direct, forceful, realistic, and it makes no empty promises. Attitudes toward work, oneself, and others are discussed with the purpose of making clear which attitudes will foster success and good relationships, and how these attitudes may be cultivated. Among the topics are the importance of recognizing one's own and others' strengths, learning how to listen and say "thank you" to subordinates, and dealing with drug and alcohol problems. Well worth considering for a business/self help collection. A. J. Anderson, Graduate Sch. of Library & Information Science, Simmons Coll., Boston

Format: Paperback
Written two recessions ago, this book does not glow over with mantras about the "new paradigm" of the "new economy" and how profits don't matter anymore, blah blah blah.
Instead this book tells you what you already know; i.e., that the way you success in business is by working hard. It's the common-sense advice that your parents and grandparents gave you.
The main point of this book is to give you kick in the tail and motivate you. It succeeded for me, so I'd definitely recommend it. Five stars all the way.
