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.

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'.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
