“By Monk in a Monastery
(Amazon Verified Purchase)
In this book are the author's words that no one dare speak at the executive/management level, the blunt truth shared honestly with the reader.
If you're someone that is frustrated with the corporate promotion process, this is the non-sugar-coated medicine you need to get over it and if you choose to compromise your sense of pride and follow the advice given here you will get that promotion.
Interestingly though having read this book now I've come to terms that maybe I DON'T want to give up my dignity and my morals in pursuit of a promotion, but this book helped me come to that realization thus it is invaluable.
What a bargain at <5 bucks except one catch with the Kindle version I cannot read the graphics of this book clearly at all on my Kindle, given that I think the author should give us all the graphics/diagrams/charts from the book on a website if possible.”
AMAZON 5-STAR REVIEWS
“Excellent source for advancement in a career or job, December 22, 2011 By Jesse
One might think that the ideas presented in this book are quite novel but in reality they have been around longer than expected. This book brings to light many subjects that are not spoken of by top executives because of the many back door deals that occur on a regular basis. Executives like to shine on leadership, teamwork and commitment but when it comes to the dark side of political advancement they'd rather sweep that under the rug. This book is great because it is not afraid to touch on the real issues that make or break a career on the basis of favoritism or some sort of X- factor.
We all know that the issue of favoritism is real and not going anywhere anytime soon so why not pick up this book and arm yourself with the knowledge that will help you stand out while fitting in a concept at first tricky but with some effort easy to understand. From the front line production worker to the top executive trying to mold the corporate culture this book could be applied to most any scenario. Speaking from experience I could say that theses concepts applied in a real life situation could help a floundering career reach the next level.
I would recommend this book to anyone seeking an edge in the job market or career advancement its worth the read.”
