What Knowledge Workers need to know to stay competitive and differentiate themselves on an on-going basis. This book summarizes the particular findings Baker and Baron published in Bourdieu's Demon, the $1.5 million dollar analysis of how the top 5% employed professionals deploy their discretionary time and money. As the value of corporations increasingly becomes a function of their "intangibles" the knowledge professionals who are most effective at creating those intangibles will become increasingly valuable. This is a fast read well worth the investment of a reader's discretionary time and money

He subsequently founded a consulting company serving major clients in communications and automotive electronics. The firm held offices in Frankfurt as well as in Detroit and Dallas and was eventually sold to J.D. Power and Associates. In 2003, Baker founded the Premium Knowledge Group, which provides sophisticated behavior-based research and analytics for modeling and marketing to over 70 million affluent consumers in the U.S. Current clients include Brooks Brothers, Forbes, and Chanel.
