Solid Advice: No BS
It's a pleasure to read a book about how to succeed in the corporate world without any jacked up formulas like Sigma Six, which never meant anything other than don't make mistakes, which is exactly what David D'Alessandro suggests, except D'Alessandro says it in english, as in 'Don't make mistakes.' Executive Warfare does a couple of other things that other books of this genre don't do: It lays out, and backs up with examples, realpolitik strategies and tactics doing things that most executives have to do, but won't talk about, like putting rivals in their place, even if their place is at some other place of employment. It also talks about the often overlooked importance of being kind, of considering the hardships of employees, and making sure they get the help they need. Definitely worth the price--even the hardcover price.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As a former editor of some all-too respectful business magazines, I'm always eager to see what David D'Alessandro will say this time around. That's because D'Alessandro is unafraid to say in print what a lot of executives will only tell you after they've had a couple of drinks. Things like, don't even think about having a couple of drinks with people you work with -or with business editors-, because the slightest slip of judgment can, years later, return to put a stop order on your pending promotion. Want to know what to do with the guy who lost the competition with you for the better job? That's easy. Want your boss's job? That's harder, but not impossible. Want to read a business book that is 100 free of business jargon, and is actually useful? Read Executive Warfare.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
