You're the professional for the new millenium; problem is, you're too d*** smart and all the 70's/80's/90's barriers to extravagent success are gone... but so are all the roadmaps. Job security is the most tragic joke since the Top 40 stations.
Companies burn their employees today, not their customers; your professors make things too complicated and your boss makes them too simple; and you've got to get ahead and make it happen, you've just GOT to, but who in the world knows how anymore?
Who's on top of the new rules, the changing private sector, the savage career path of the new millenium?
Sally Hogshead, that's who.
She gets it ten years before the rest of your graduating class knows what it is, and she can tell you how to avoid disaster and keep your head above water (in many terms) even though you're already two years into it (and you were about to make the mistakes she warns against last week!)
And she does it with the brevity, impact, and flair of a stellar advertising mind and a smart young scrapper. Which, as it happens, she is.
Obviously I'm a fan ;)
This book may not have the answers (those are inside you) but it sure gives you the questions to ask.
Personally- the one "Truth" that made this book worthwhile to me- and gave me the kick in the pants to do something different- was "Aspire to be the dumbest person in the room"- in other words- if you are always the brightest- you aren't aspiring to your potential. I can't say this book made me smarter- but it did help in getting me out of a rut- and sometimes that's all you need.
Beautifully designed- it makes a great gift book.
The pages were falling out (poor binding in general) when this arrived, but I did purchase it used; however, the condition was not appropriate for the reported condition. Not helpful info for Amazon buyers or used buyers from any other seller, though.
This is a great book
