The Rules! The Rules! Be a Rules Player! Be cool!

Okay. Mr. Templar is a bit over the top with all his Rules talk, like it's some sort of secret club for the cool kids. And he needs to tone down the few metaphors - within a span of about four pages I was instructed to strike like a cobra while remembering I was top dog in a pack of lions, and then there was the thing about a lone wolf . . .

Despite all this, I'm glad I read the book because I was able to pull some useful nuggets of workplace advice from it. A lot of it boiled down to the importance of ALWAYS acting professionally (dress, talk, attitude, interactions) and of being alert to opportunities for advancement.
