A very short parable (you can read it during your lunch hour) on how a young unemployed veteran is handed the opportunity to take his career to the top (if he succeeds) or go down in flames and ruin his career (if he fails). The book runs along the lines of the "Who Moved My Cheese" approach (though it was written in the 20's) of using a short story to explain a few very basic (though powerful) principles. This book really sums up the guiding principle of consulting: Even if you aren't sure you can do it, tell yourself that you can, figure out how to pull it off and execute (and don't give up). And above all...always go above and beyond what's expected - even if it's very painful to do so. A great little short story (though somewhat unrealistic - I don't know of any human being that would go to all of the trouble of the main character) that reminds us of what we can accomplish when our backs are against the wall and we never give up. The motto of the go-getter: It shall be done.

OCR did not do well with this book. Try again, perhaps.

Digitized, but not edited for OCR errors. I didn't get through the second page before I ran into complete gibberish, causing me to pull out my physical copy.
