From Publishers Weekly
Irrespective of intelligence, skills, education or luck, claims Ringer ( Looking Out for #1 ), the faithful practice of specific, simple "habits" will assure success in one's chosen field, preferably a job that is both financially rewarding and personally meaningful. The term "habit," however, is misleading as Ringer uses it, e.g., "the Action Habit," to embrace discussions of human relations, morality, efficiency, self-discipline, etc. This self-help book, while breezily written and offered in authoritative in tone, tends to present the obvious and commonsensical as new concepts. Many of the illustrative anecdotes demonstrate the author's own percipience and sense of priorities. 150,000 first printing; author tour.
