McCammon points out the workplace for what it is: an often absurd landscape of ego and fear guided by social rules that no one ever talks about. He offers a mix of enlightening and often self-deprecating personal stories about his experience and clear, practical advice on getting the small things rightskills that often go unacknowledgedfrom shaking a hand to conducting a business meeting in a bar to navigating a work party.
