I wish I had read this book when I was starting out in business it could have saved me a lot of hard knocks. This is the best book about how business really works I have ever read. The book’s theory is you and your boss are a human beings who is are governed by emotion (dinosaur brains). It teaches us to control our own emotions and use the emotions of others to benefit us. This is not a “get the other guy” book, it is a sober guide to business and personal success. It’s also very entertaining.
The book gives you specific examples on how to handle many different kinds of bosses. We’ve all had them the Workaholic, the Nit Picker, etc.
The biggest lesson of the book: Rule number one the boss is always right. Rule number two when the boss is wrong, see rule number one. And what to do when this isn’t true.
