His advice can be boiled down to 3 1/2 pearls:
1) Get it in writing.
2) Document your work efforts.
3) Know the law
3.5) Don’t practice without a license
The title is misleading...it should read more like 'how NOT to be intimidated by others' or 'how to cut it in the business world'
The contents applied will turn you from naïve to worldly.
I first read this when I came out years ago and I thought I was getting rusty at a lot of things I could use a little brush up, a little refresher course.
I think that given the fact that things have swung back to where big business is in control and we are facing people who would tend to intimidate us more and more this book is an excellent read.
Buy it read it thank me

On the other hand, have you ever felt a bit ‘intimidated’ when you *applied* for a job? Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t. But if you aren’t in your ideal job, one that you know you could do, maybe you could find a whole new mindset to get there ...
That is what happened to this reviewer many, many years ago shortly after this book had been recommended to him by his teacher. Consequently it is firmly on a short list of ‘books that changed my life’.
Recently I bought this copy for a friend, an intelligent man who feels he’s been successful in life. Thing is, I know him, and am amazed he’s not in the sort of job that vastly exceeds what he himself believes he could do. This is what the book does.
I didn’t find much to get excited about in other books he’s written — a few cool ideas, but not the remarkable game changer that this, probably his first book, proved to be.
I’ve often bought the odd ‘self-help’ book to read on a plane. They’re entertaining and seem great until you put them down, get off the flight, and step back into the real world. Many don’t apply to everyone or else they’re written with lots of buzzword-filled pseudo-science, ‘inspirational quotes’ and dodgy logic. Ringer’s book on the other hand has big ideas condensed into a sentence that condenses into the action. Robert Ringer is someone whose hand I’d be proud to shake and thank him for writing his first book, “Winning Through Intimidation”.
Make it your ‘bible’ — you may never look back!
In ANY business you're in, you come up against certain situations which Ringer describes in detail.Both the ones he won and the ones he (pitifully) lost!
The bottom line is : you always have TO GO THE EXTRA STEP, even when you don't think it necessary(, that's usually when it is the most needed!)
However, I still prefer "Looking out for N° 1 his 1st book which I re-read periodically, as we forget these basic truths.
I don’t normally take my time to review products, so let me start by saying those who are taking their time to read this message should take extra time to read this book.
I tend to read one book a week, and I found this book extremely entertaining, exciting, informative and educational. It is a very easy to read book and I always found myself engaged with his stories. The art work complimenting the authors stories also helps create a more vivid image.
My only complaint is that it wasn’t longer.
