Reviews - What do customers think about The Rules of Office Politics (Rules of . . . series)?
An interesting read Feb 18, 2008
Personally I quite liked the book. It started out a bit negative for me but by then end I was hooked. I'll certainly re-read but as the very first book of office politics it covers off what I would assume to be the basics very well. Things like: * Listen * Select your audience * Pay attention to what people really want * The official channels rarely tell you what you want * Don't say anything you don't want repeated
Very sound advice. I'd say a good introduction book - if a little short.
