Practical advice for everyone!
5 Star Review from Amazon.com for “Rise to the Top!” - http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B007TJGJMS/
“Rise to the top” is a book about how to be successful, efficient and confident in your job. While the author’s target audience appears to be managers there is plenty of no-nonsense-common-sense advice and ideas for everyone - no matter you current role or place within your organisation.
Having read a lot of management books, I am always looking for new ideas on how to do my job better. As expected, many of the ideas and techniques have been covered before (there are only so many proven ways one can improve one’s efficiency and approach to work). However, I was pleased to find many interesting ideas, which were new to me, and which I actually wanted to try out at work.
The chapters: “Do the most annoying thing first - every day!” and “Do one more thing!” was a real inspiration.
One minor complaint is that you can’t jump to the Table of Content. It does not appear to have been bookmarked correctly at the time of publication. This is however, a small point.
In summary, a well written, easy to read publication, full of practical work-related advice for everyone.
