From the mind of the ultimate corporate gunslinger comes this no-nonsense, real-world Curriculum, designed to augment - if not replace - the more traditional path to achieving mastery of the business universe. Conquer this sharp, practical and often amusing course of study and save $250,000 of wasted business school tuition.
Unlike those august, Ivy-encrusted factories that churn out masterful business administrators, The Curriculum will teach you the art of business, employing a smart, tactical battle plan that will prove infinitely more awesome as you make your way in the world.
We begin, in the Core Curriculum, with the acquisition and maintenance of Power. Included are such essentials as Not Appearing Stupid (an early career requirement), Fabricating A Sustainable Business Personality, and the arts of Management and Selling.
The Advanced Curriculum hones the skills that are required to seize Success by the throat and shake it until valuable prizes fall out of its pockets, including fundamentals on Strategic Thinking, Self-Branding, mastering Electronic Communications, and dealing with Crazy People.
Tutorials and Electives, which students may pursue as their interest or discretion advises, include lessons on Giving an Effective Presentation, Business Drinking, and the Care and Feeding of Ultra-Senior Officers.
Backed up by years of study from Mr. Bing’s proprietary research organization (The National Association of Serious Studies), The Curriculum is dedicated to the study of business, how it works, and how it can be used against those who don’t know how it works.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
Would you try another book from Stanley Bing and/or Stanley Bing?
If you’ve listened to books by Stanley Bing before, how does this one compare?
This was his first book I read
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Having earned a masters degree in engineering management, I read this book and realized that most of corporate America today must have read some form of this book.
Any additional comments?
It's a must read for every student to read AFTER they graduate with a masters degree and BEFORE they enter a large corporation, so they're more prepared to deal with the politics.
