Publisher's Summary

Have you ever thought to yourself, “My God, how did that guy ever become a vice president?” or, "How did he get the promotion over me when I'm much more qualified?" 

In every industry, every company, and every department, there are those who quickly climb the corporate ladder with incredible speed only to find their successes were very short-lived. There are others who surely should be promoted but seem (to the novice observer) to never get a fair shake. Finally, there are those who just seem to do everything right. They ascend up the ranks in an almost heavenly fashion with little to no effort...or so it seems.

If you are a business professional, aspiring executive, or fresh out of college looking to enter the corporate world, then this is the audiobook for you. In this audiobook, you will learn how to use corporate politics in a positive way and arm yourself with the skills and aptitudes needed to give you the advantage over other players in the game and set yourself up for success.

Insightful and thought provoking

Loved this book! Really opened my eyes on topics and concepts I have always avoided because I felt they were negative or unnecessary, realize how important they are now.

a fair summary of Concepts from multiple sources t

this book is a fair summary of Concepts from multiple other sources, however there are no real Innovations breakthroughs otherwise original ideas. it is a fair place to start if you don't have time or are new to business. however, if you are already well-read, this is not the book for you.

Pretty good

Decent book with some great tips on perceptional messaging. However, the author goes into pseudo science career success tips like visualization, meditation and affirmations. These are nice to know but wasn’t expecting them in this book.

eye opening

very insightful and eye opening. I am a young executive myself and it was shocking to see some of the things I'm going through in this book but good to know that other people have faced and conquered similar circumstances
