1.0 out of 5 stars Horribly demoralizing book
This book is absolutely horrible. The central tenant of the book is that you should effectively be a cog in the company machinery. You should put your personal life aside in order to be the best employee of your company as possible.
I would not want to work at a company that valued the lack of individuality that this book seems to emphasize. Not everything in the...

This is an awesome book. In clearly gives examples of how different employees are perceived and gives examples of how behavior and attitude changes can change your career or even save it if they are making cuts. Many of us go to work with poor attitudes or think we are giving 100% and no one appreciates it. This book explains how you may think you are giving 100% and not getting any mileage out of it because no one notices, or because you have serious deficiencies in other areas, so it doesn't matter how good you are elsewhere. It helps you get out of the "I'm a victim at work, no one appreciates me, they are out to screw everyone, blah blah blah" mindset and into one where you are pleasant, eager, approachable, an advocate for your boss, etc. It really will help transform how people perceive you at work. If you are cynical and hate your employer and are not motivated to make personal changes, this book will not help you. You have to want to make the change.

This book offers practical advice for anyone in business by showing you what CEOs deem important. The book offers tips on how to become a person a successful company would want to retain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, March 24, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've kept this book around for when I'm feeling a little burnt out at work. Reading it helps me feel motivated.

I recommend this book for anyone who's worried about losing their job or being demoted. This book would also be good for new graduates getting ready to enter the workforce.

I always look for titles by the same author, as it is written in a very interesting way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still an excellent and appropriate read!, March 6, 2009

This book applies to 2009 as much as it did to 1997 when it was written. A must read for everyone - staff and employees alike.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horribly demoralizing book, May 8, 2009
This book is absolutely horrible. The central tenant of the book is that you should effectively be a cog in the company machinery. You should put your personal life aside in order to be the best employee of your company as possible.
I would not want to work at a company that valued the lack of individuality that this book seems to emphasize. Not everything in the book is that bad, but it is easy to flip through to a random page of the book and find some bad advice on management or the work place environment.
In my opinion, this information is outdated and should be entirely skipped.
I reviewed the book with my manager at work for a good laugh.....
