Office Politics How to Thrive in a

Review From User :

I think this is a fantastic addition to the literary ocean which was surprisingly missing so far. With so many corporations around, how do we actually carry ourselves in order to survive on a day to day basis Oliver has defined a successful corporate creature as a triad, a tripartite combination of a narcissistic, Machiavellian and Psychopath individual, features we all have to a certain degree. All of us working in the corporate environment that is. A successful career in any corporation requires not knowledge or skill, but acting skills, because most jobs are based in the service industry where attributes like perceptions and reputation matter more than what you actually know. So in short if you are in any service industry, its not what you know that matters rather its what they think you know or may know. The real world examples are very efficiently employed to emphasize any potential or existing employee to plot his way across the corporate maze.

A word of caution though, many readers not used to Oliver's sarcastic style may be put off in the beginning. I would implore them to continue and persevere till the end, as the last chapters are really good as they bring the whole arguments together. Trust me, there is a lot to take away from this wonderful book.
