A must read!

Career Warfare reaffirmed the things that I have seen and experienced in corporate life over my 15 years leading up to a senior management level. If you’ve been lucky enough to work for some someone like D.F. D’Alessandro you will have many, many ‘ah ha!’ moments while listening to this book. In my personal experience, working as a Director at a top-tier F.I, I can truly say that he is dead-on in regard to how decisions are made at the tops levels. This book can trigger a paradigm change for you. You will likely see yourself in a new light as a ‘product’ that you and you alone must market every day in order to build your own personal brand. At every turn you are faced with opportunities to enhance or destroy your personal brand and it is your personal brand that your bosses think about when you get (or don’t get) that promotion, bonus or raise. I have seen it with my own eyes, it really happens the way D.F. D’Alessandro describes it. From the moment you wake up with how you dress to how you treat the guy at the coffee shop, and with every interaction form the security guard and receptionist, to your staff, to your CEO, your clients, etc. you need to be conscious of how you are marketing and building your personal brand. The narration by G.Gardner was excellent and I gave this book 4 instead of 5 stars only because I was left wanting more from D.F. D’Alessandro.

Good story but weak reading

I enjoyed the content but I found the reading to be painful at times. I did not care for the inflections in his voice.
