Publisher's Summary

How does one become a CEO? Many people know they want to climb the corporate ladder, but don't have a clue about how to ascend that ladder without losing their grip. In this insightful, controversial program, Jeffrey J. Fox offers solid, practical advice and recommendations on how to fulfill your ambition to better yourself, to be a contributor, to make a difference, to grow professionally, and to be more successful. The seventy-five "rules" that Mr. Fox, founder of a marketing and consulting firm and an MBA graduate of Harvard Business School, outlines are actions you must take, traits you must develop, and things you must avoid in order to succeed. Mr. Fox's short and simple one-lesson-per-topic approach is an intelligent and straight-forward method of business instruction.
This guide sets forth the qualities that every successful leader must have: vision, persistence, integrity, and respect for superiors, subordinates, and peers. Whether you want to become president or CEO of a corporation, buy a business, start a business, run your own business, or have a long and fruitful career in a large corporation, How to Become CEO will give you the power to control your own business destiny.

A Good Book for an employee wanting to be the boss

As a book for those dreaming of or climbing up the Ladder to be Directors in any organisation and being just over 1.5 hours long.... this is an easy listen book, direct to the point; it gives you the facts in a succinct nugget manner leaving to you to do the reflecting and application.

Downside, although the introduction acknowledges that one can become a CEO by starting/owning their company the rest of the book appears to focus on the "employee mindset" working their way up to be the big boss.
