learned a bit but not alot
There were 3-4 points I learned from this book. Basically avoidance mainly. I was disappointed to be honest. I found the book to be a bit bland and light on knowledge. I worked in large consultancies like Accenture and deployed in to Public sectors in the UK. So I am not a novice to the ladder or office politics. Which is probably why I didn't find this book helpful.
Give techniques on how improve? the review basically just outlines office mechanics. There is no real suggestions to improve it.
Add more practical advise, even if it was practice mindfullness to cope better in xyz. Just add more useful information on how to cope.
