The author gives readers the wisdom they need to succeed in corporate life. It isn’t uncommon to find the newly recruited who plunge into professional life with all their potential and zeal, giving of their best, but who quickly get burnt out because they are not familiar with the unwritten codes and the realities in business and professional life. From the start of the book, the author warns that truth is unpleasant, and cautions that “So many people consider honesty a virtue, yet most never want to hear the truth.” In this slim but powerful book, readers will learn how to be their own advocates, understand the way management thinks, develop the skills to stay ahead of the competition without ceding to bullying, and a lot more.

The book is interesting because it combines practical wisdom with real life examples to drive home a message that readers really need to hear.
