Jean's Review

You already know talent and hard work alone will not get you to the top.  Reardon says what separates the winners from the losers in corporate life is politics.  The most talented and accomplished employees often fall behind their politically adept coworkers, losing ground in the race to get ahead – sometimes even losing their jobs.  Why? Because they’ve failed to manage the important relationships with the people who can best reward their creativity and intelligence. Reardon explains how to know what to say, how to say it and when.
