Entry Level but good points

The style is abrasive and forceful, but makes valid points for early managers. For finesse, look elsewhere.

This is a pretty good book! It has a lot of good advice, although the author is pretty caustic--I would never work for him! Also, his voice is very shrill and irritating, which made it hard to listen to at times.

Pretty Basic

A basic review of work and business, delivered at a low shout by the author himself. Good for a kick in the pants, but little else. Unless you're a slacker, in which case this would help you a great deal. But then you probably wouldn't be in a CD book club.

Better than any general ed credit your're forced to take in college

Great book. The book's principals of hard work and "the real world" should be taught in high schools and colleges instead of the namby-pamby feel-good garbage that creates a bunch of spoiled wimps that want upon graduation what their parents took 30 years to acheive!
