Publisher's Summary

Before he got a job at Esquire and before he became the etiquette columnist at Entrepreneur magazine, Ross McCammon was staring out a second-floor window at a parking lot in suburban Dallas wondering if it was five o'clock yet. One phone call from Esquire changed everything. This is McCammon's honest, funny, and entertaining journey from impostor to authority - a story that begins with periods of debilitating workplace anxiety but leads to rich insights and practical advice from a guy who still remembers what it's like to feel entirely ill equipped for professional success.

McCammon points out the workplace for what it is: an often absurd landscape of ego and fear guided by social rules that no one ever talks about. He offers a mix of enlightening and often self-deprecating personal stories about his experience and clear, practical advice on getting the small things right - skills that often go unacknowledged - from shaking a hand to conducting a business meeting in a bar to navigating a work party.

Works Well with Others is an inspirational new way of looking at your job, your career, and success itself. It is an accessible guide for those of us who are smart, talented, and ambitious but don't quite feel prepared for success...or know what to do once we've made it.

    "Amusing but really limited"

    not much new and at times felt like the author was giving us the middle finger. I did find some of the writing clever and amusing but it felt terribly limited - more like an autobiography from someone too young to have had enough life to write such a book.

    "Very practical and kept my attention"

    Narrator was lively and usually had good comedic timing. I was too interested in the chapters that ask you to tally up a score. Definitely came away with some Qoutables. Overall Very practical and kept my attention

    "Great book"

    The book satisfies lot of uncertainty in my daily dealings at the office. It helped me realized the fact that everyone carries uncertainty and doubt of one's abilities and people often are harder on themselves than needed. It is good to not feel like everyone is better than me but instead may just be better at hiding their short-comings around me.

    I recommend this book to everyone. The narrator did an excellent job reading the text. I felt like I was in a seminar and not hearing an audible book.

    "I loved this book"

    It's hilarious and littered with worthwhile tips for interacting with people in a business context. Tips you'll remember even if you think they're useless upon reading them. This is not a serious career guide, it's a well written mini-autobiography that'll teach you something.

    "Something wrong with the file."

    Plays fine on my phone but crashes by car stereo when playing over Bluetooth. With 311 audiobooks in my collection, I have never encountered such an issue with any Bluetooth device.
