Just had the opportunity to order my copy. I really enjoyed reading the preview and couldn't stop reading it. I have utterly failed the multi-tasking concept as I have a ton of work to do, however, it was well worth the time.

I had no idea about the use of "leave your smartphones at the door" sign that Professor Adler now has on his office door. The information you can obtain in this book is priceless and is the culmination of an entire career in business and academia.

As noted in the back of the book, Professor Adler is revered by his students and has been a mentor to a countless number of students and professionals during his career as a partner at Deloitte and as a Professor at Chapman University.

I am greatly looking forward to reading the whole thing.

A must buy book!!

As the Dean of a large public university business school, I consider this book a "must read" - we have purchased copies for our placement office and will hand some out at our career days. It is useful not only for those entering the accounting or other professions, but for all who are graduating from college in this digital age.
Hank Adler has captured some important "rules of the road" - informal information which seems to have been missed by many, about expectations of those entering today's work force - and done so in a cogent and compelling manner.

Format: Paperback
This book is full of practical advice for navigating the workplace. As a former CEO, I wish I had this book to hand out to new hires and interns. Important issues are touched upon in a cheerful manner, and are well defined, I.e. Appearances do matter, good manners and a strong work ethic are noticed.

I found the section on office politics very interesting and helpful. Good read for bosses also. It reminds us of all that goes on in the workplace. Jane

As an upcoming graduate soon to enter the workforce, the content of this book could not be more appropriate. The book is very easy to read, I completed it in a single sitting. In just 100 pages, Adler effectively communicates a number of different strategies and approaches to succeed in the business world. He pulls from personal experience and is able to give numerous examples and situations that appropriately address the matter at hand.

Whether you have recently graduated or are soon to do so, I highly recommend this book. In about an hour's time, you will learn proper etiquette for smartphone use, attire, workplace interactions, etc.: seemingly small matters to my generation, but something that clearly has not been lost on executives of the corporations we wish to work for. Adler also helps to lay the foundation for long-term strategies that will promote continual success in the workplace.

All in all, I found this to be a very informative and helpful read. The book is well worth your time and after reading it, you will be better prepared to enter the workforce or improve your current job situation.

There is nothing surprising in this book. The advice is straight forward and things everyone should know. However, most first time employees do not. So read the book and take the advice. (Would not hurt for all us to read to remind us of how not to get caught in some of the traps.)

I bought this book with the intention of gifting it to my nephew. After having read it, I'm thinking that I may buy a dozen or so to hand out to others. In short and humorous chapters, this easy read is overflowing with very insightful advice for someone newly entering the job market. It's also an exceptional reminder for all the rest of us, regardless of how many years we've been working. My father died when I was young, but I cannot help but think that these are EXACTLY the wise professional tips he would have offered me. Buy a copy (the price is certainly right) and read it. I'm certain you'll find it useful and will want to gift copies to many others.
