    Best-selling author and executive coach D.A. Benton presents a six-step process to help you acquire the powerful executive demeanor necessary to progressively move up in a corporation. Drawing upon her experience in coaching clients at top companies worldwide, Benton explains executive charisma, its importance to corporate success, and then outlines a proven six-step approach for learning how to think, act, and relate to others like an executive.

    Overall

    Did you ever have to write a 5,000 word essay in highschool on a subject for which you had 100 words to say? The other 4,900 words are devoted to restating in ways that satisfy the requirement without adding any value. That's what this book is like. All you have to do is read the chapter titles and you've pretty much got it. Unless of course you want to wade through page after page of sage advice like "Don't touch others in the pelvic region", "practice being more deliberate by slowing down every time you see the color purple", "learn to be more humorous by listening to country music", "speak to your boss as if you are talking to a 5 year old", etc. There were many other such gems, but I don't want to waste another minute of my life searching through this audio book to find them.

    This book is like a 4 hour sunday school lesson for young initiates to the Corporate Church. Ms. Benton spends 95% of the book preaching in a pedantic and amatuerish style and 5% sharing quotes from executives. It might have been a better book if the ratio were reversed. Even the quotes are odd. Many are unsourced and others seem to contradict a point she just finished making and otherwise add little value.

    Frankly, I'm annoyed that others on this site rated this book so glowingly because I wasted my monthly credit based on their review. I'm taking time out of my very busy day in hopes of saving others from the same frustration. Don't waste your money and your time on this book.
