Amateur.

Very disappointing . Extremely amateur. No real insight. Very basic workplace experiences and simple suggestions. I do not recommend.

horrible

You know your in trouble when they start with a 10 minute rant of made up professional skills and experiences knowones ever heard of. The use obsure words in order to make you think they're smart. Very very superficial advice from someone that never worked a normal job like 99% of us.

OK Book for fundamentals

There's a lot of good info on this book. But I can tell from experience many scenarios are far from reality. I don't think it provides enough hints for professionals working in a heavily political enterprise.
