An entertaining, though dated (sexist, racist, homophobic) business/management guide, presented as humor but in its central premise, that we are promoted to the level of our incompetence, spot on. ( )

Funny at tmes, but the made up exemples are way too many. The book equivalent of an executive toy... Fun for a short while. In any case, it's worth a quick read once ( )

One of the best explanations given about the way people make their way through organisations. ( )
