Overview

Do you spend half your time and energy dealing with politics and game playing? Are you forced to work in an uncivilized atmosphere, created and controlled by tiny brains, narrow minds, and brutish attitudes?

Suffer in silence no more. Now, from the authors of the bestselling DINOSAUR BRAINS, here is a witty, informative, and devilishly perceptive look at the club-wielding, cave-dwelling boneheads who can make life in the office so miserable. With the plain-speaking, success-oriented advice of NEANDERTHALS AT WORK, you can rise above primitive behavior and take the evolutionary leap into an enlightened and more productive workplace. Once you learn to undo the first rule of Neanderthal thinking — Us vs. Them — you'll quickly identify these stone-age throwbacks and begin to deal with them effectively:

Competitors — to them, if you're not a Winner, you're a Loser.

Rebels — creative innovators, they always avoid the three Ps: paperwork, politics, and people.

Believers — they work hard, follow the rules, and never get promoted.

Whether your goal is getting ahead or just coexisting peacefully, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to survive and thrive in the ultra-competitive workplace of the 1990s.

"The only way to get ahead is to figure out the hidden rules that determine how your organization really works. And to do that, a good place to start is with NEANDERTHALS AT WORK."
