I'm going to have a hard time reviewing this book and giving it five stars is maybe too high. It wasn't the easiest book to read. It definitely has some depressing moments.

The first part of the book takes a very cynical look at corporations. If you've worked for companies of any size beyond small then you'll probably read this part and start feeling depressed. You'll be able to take the categories Dietrich describes and put former/current coworkers and yourself into them. This doesn't always feel good.

The first part finishes with an outline of how to get ahead in the corporate world.

The second and last part of the book extols the virtue of starting your own thing and being independent. It definitely makes a good case for it.

Other reviews have gone into a bit more detail than my own. Dig into those if you want a bit more details.

Some others that I think highlight good points:
