I am just getting my head back into the professional workplace after child-rearing and this was perfect to listen to. Practical and told in a meaningful way by sharing war stories from his career..

I absolutely recommend it to anyone. Perhaps even more relevant to those who are plodding along in their careers and have hit an impass on progressing.

Well written, humourous and sound advice

I am listening to this book at the moment and fully recommend it to anyone interested in improving their career outcomes. The book clearly articulates the hidden opportunities and threats that pass by during a normal day in the corporate environment and how to understand how they can seriously unpick your otherwise excellent performance and frustrate progression at work. To cap it all the book is extremely well written with a quirky sense of humour that gets me too and from work with a smile on my face - buy it!
