I found the psychological insights Levit shows in her book about the relationships between employee and employer were excellent. I liked the tips on how to present a good image to the boss. The writing is clear and to the point.

This book is a must read for any 20 something who is either frustrated with their corporate job or for those who just want to get ahead. I fit into the former category and my dad bought me this book thinking that it might help me. After reading the book, my situation hasn't changed and my boss is still annoying, but I have some new ideas about what to do differently about the situation.

Twenty-Something's should definitely find this book helpful when searching for a job in the business world and then working in it. Going from college to corporate can definitely be a culture shock and twenty-something's will need all the help they can get. I think this would be an AWESOME college graduation gift!
