    "Keep your windows clean"

    This book starts out fine but like the rest of Jeffrey's book he finds it very hard to stick with the topic. A lot of the advice in this book is ok but sometimes he exagarates a little, example: tip everyone generously because you never know when they will become your boss. The book diverts into costumer service, marketing and sales. Although this diffenitly is a part of the trip to the top, the way the subjects is explained in this book just doesn't make it. One of the advice the author gives is "Keep your windows clean". This book should be called "100 great advice to nice people" :-)

    "Cliche messages"

    I found nothing original in this book other than your stereotypical "do this, don't do that" management advice given in a very unstructured way.

    "great book"

    loved this book. I got this yesterday and have been listening to it ever since. There are some things that would probably be more relevant to the US rather than the UK, but the principles are very sound and can be used anywhere.
