Inhaltsangabe: Eat, or be eaten. To Phil Porter, that sums up the golden rule of corporate America. With tongue firmly in cheek and an eye on his back, this veteran corporate shark reveals just how those master corporate politicians operate--and how to beat them at their cutthroat game. Porter outlines 81 survival skills and battle tactics to protect everyone who isn't a tyrant CEO--and arm anyone who aspires to be one. Among the battle tactics are the art of the personal attack, leveraging your worth by threatening to quit, and shifting focus and blame to others for your screw-ups. Eye opening, hilarious, and chilling, EAT--OR BE EATEN! has the lowdown on what it takes to survive--and prosper--in even the most fiercely competitive corporate jungle. There is nothing subtle about the way Porter advises that the game be played-you play ruthlessly and play to win!
Rezension: It's a jungle out there. And in Eat or Be Eaten, 30-year corporate veteran Phil Porter reveals what he claims are the secrets to clawing your way up the workplace food chain: using stealth tactics long employed by master corporate politicians to successfully negotiate between their workers and their bosses. Some will find Porter's view of the contemporary executive suite as cutthroat-safari-in-the-Kalahari a bit too cynical; others will enjoy the way he plants his tongue firmly in his cheek. But few will deny the underlying truth in the hundred or so strategies he prescribes for "a fighting chance to survive." Porter frames his suggestions with headings like Work Overtime ("bosses eat this up," he begins), Agree and Do What You Want ("by the time they find out ... you've gained at least another month or two"), and Intimidation ("a very effective tool ... if it is serious and guaranteed to be implemented"). By categorizing and fleshing them out, he offers a not-so-pretty version of corporate America while providing realistic advice for those who have to Tap Dance ("the art and practice of defending yourself to a hostile audience") or deal with someone who must. -- Howard Rothman
