The Dirty Secrets of Corporate Policy
May 16th, 2013
I would like to think this book as having two parts. The first part is about the dirty secrets of climbing the corporate ladder and the other as the clean one. I love the dirty secrets shown in the first half of the book, because I rarely found it in other book. It really open my eyes and made me realize that I did most of the career killer moves described in the book. Reading this part sometimes made me cringed about the 'bad' things corporate managers do. The other part is the good truth, the one where being a good employee and good leader should be. I dare not say this part is boring, because Shapiro wrote it well, but this is the stuff found in most leadership and personal development books. So, I am not that impressed with this part, although I think that without this part, the book will somewhat looked 'evil'. I would recommend this book to anyone that is climbing a corporate ladder, especially those still early in their careers.
