This book is great because the "theory" presented makes so much sense and actually helps explain a lot of what is going on in organizations. On the other hand it is even better, because despite the name the book is not hostile or negative: it gives solid advice on how to live in the actual reality that we have. With the stuff in the book, you have a better chance of being one of those who matter or at least getting more out of not being in the core group.
