It’s about one man's who wrote his experiences in a set list of rules during his many years in the corporate world. Taking advantage of the unwritten rules of business and capitalizing on people's behaviours to put himself ahead in his career. Most of the 'rules' are basic common sense that we all knew but never consciously realized.
I recommend it if you are a light reader like I am. The trick is remember to follow them but I advise that some rules are made to be broken. It tells me the first thing I shouldn't do is tell people I work with about "The Rules". I disagree, it should be recommended to those I feel that I want to succeed. I'm career driven, but a career won't enhance your life and make you happy if you have no friends. Coworkers can be friends and I think friends are more valuable in your life than any career.
