    A great book for any one thinking about going into business. McC

    A great book for any one thinking about going into business. McCormack's book will help any one from an intern 
    to a fellow executive. This book not only gives business advice but also gives many great pointers on how to
    live your every day life. This book has really helped me improve my people skills and I hope anyone interested
    in reading it gives it a chance.

    A Must Read For Anyone Going Into Business

    There are many books the shelves for the seasoned executive wanting to enhance his or her skills, but very few for the new executive crop. Mark McCormack gives straightforward, no nonsense advise on the subtly of business that is not taught in ANY business school. The reader gets invaluable insights into the world of 'the street smart executive' and how to immediately improve their people skills. While some of McCormack's 'notes' may seem obvious to an experienced executive, the lessons are great examples of how interpersonal dealings can either make or break a business relationship. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to save the pain of trial by fire as they make their way through the corporate world. This is a must read for anyone wanting to be a 'street smart executive'.

    A must read book

    What they don't teach you at Harvard Business School is a must read book for anybody in business or anybody thinking about business. Mark McCormack, a successful business executive and author of this spectacular book, shares his most inner and important secrets about life in the business world. We are able to relate to Mark on all aspects of business. He presents all topics, from meetings to organization. Mark McCormack also gives us examples of mistakes that he made as a young man growing into business. He warns us, as to help us make the right decision. Even for thoughs who are not pursuing business, this book will teach you the basics. Anybody who reads this book will surely have a much better understanding of the way business and the way it works. This book was not only written for information, but it also is produces some interesting humor with Mark's deals ands clients. Most of Mark's clients are superstars and it is often funny to listen to what they said or did. To sum it up, this is a must read book for anybody who is at all interested in learning about business and the way that it works.
