49 Secrets and Shortcuts You Need to Know

"5 out of 5 stars...[it's] ethical without being preachy, aspirational without being sappy, practical while still crackling with the author's natural wit." - Rich Karlgaard, Publisher of Forbes Magazine

For the past seven years, Geoffrey James has written a daily blog that's become one of the most popular business-focused destinations on the web. In BUSINESS WITHOUT THE BULLSH*T, readers will learn surprising but tried-and-true secrets about being an extraordinary boss, about coping with annoying coworkers, and navigating the thorny problems that recur in every workplace.

Tips from BUSINESS WITHOUT THE BULLSH*T:

  • Long work hours mean less work gets done. Multiple studies reveal that working 60 rather than 40 hours a week makes you slightly more productive but only for a little while. After about three weeks, people get burned out, get sick and go absent, and start making avoidable errors.
  • What every boss wants from you. From your boss's perspective your real job is to make the boss successful. There are no exceptions to this rule.
  • Why your resume is your enemy. Only write a resume after you're talking to people inside the hiring firm. Then, customize it to match what you've discovered that they really what.
