Publisher's Summary

Do you remember when you had your first thought of corporate America and working there? A job of high importance came to mind, maybe even wearing a suit and working in a fancy office. The sad truth in the matter of this place is, although it has its perks and benefits, it has about as much politics and as many cliques as the high school cafeteria. When thinking about life after high school we always imagined that the real world wouldn't have as many barriers. The cool kids, although they were completely outnumbered by the kids that weren't, had the approval of the staff to lead and make decisions for the overall student body. You might remember being frustrated by this because these students weren't as bright or as knowledgeable as you or your peers about what they were running or leading. The staff's only job was to teach, and they ignored the many obstacles put in place by these cliques. One might laugh at the comparison of corporate America to high school, but to many who have lived it, they know it's a spot-on truth when comparing the politics involved in each.

This book is not by the author of 48 Laws of Power, Mastery etc...

This should be a must read in every high school!

This was a quick and easy listen. I wish I found it sooner so I wouldn't growing back limbs! Great rules to live by. push yourself to adhere to them. I will be sharing this with my young son

Excellent book from Robert Greene

I read a lot of Robert greens books and have found him very thorough with history lessons and something to learn. Robert Greene gives it to you real.

Good Stuff! Wish I had this out of college.

The Readers Digest version of the 48 Laws of Power. Everyone in public education should read this.

Should Have Read This Sooner!

It’s an unfortunate, but very realistic truth telling about corporate America without any fluff. All helpful and succinct advice.

Unexpected

Ofcourse it's expected RG will always put out quality work, but this short yet effective pice was unexpected

It doesn't particularly bring new information to light, but re-unforced those things we know in the back of our heads we just need somebody else to say out loud.

A lot of practical advice about what NOT to do, which can help avoid a lot of blunders I still make myself in daily life especially in a new work place
(He doesn't tell any stories in this one)

More than worth it 5*
