Wow... should I be worried that my boss asked me to read this? He said it was "really good", I found it to be bullshit corporate propaganda.

Frederick Yes, it's corporate propaganda. The reason it was such a best seller is because militaries, dictatorships, imperialist and corporations bought them to hand out amongst management and officers. They wanted blind obedience from workers and soldiers. If you notice the author was preaching obeying orders without question which was 99% of the article and 1% going to delivering a message to Garcia. The United States Marine Corps dropped the booklet early this year (April 2016) from the required ready list. I served in the Marine Corps as a SGT and I never read the booklet until a couple of days ago. I just saw it as a dime novel from the authors of the old West days of the late 1800's.
