Great advice and strategies, but too many examples

Any additional comments?

This audio book was full of great advice and strategies for winning in the work place. It explains to you what works and what doesn't for getting promotions, but does this through the excessive use of example stories instead of just giving up facts and straight up advice. So you need to be able to read between the lines to get the most from the book.

To me it got tiresome listening to story after story, but it was worth it in the end for the immediate work place improvement I acquired.

I wish I read this book 10 years ago.

I work in a big corporation myself and can see so many parralels between the book and the company I work with. I was playing against myself for so many years, pity I haven't read this book before.
