Description

Contrary to popular belief, the business world is not that complicated. While every industry and every profession requires specific expertise, the truth is that the "business of business" is relatively simple.

For the past seven years, Geoffrey James has written a daily blog that's become one of the most popular business-focused destinations on the web. In BUSINESS WITHOUT THE BULLSH*T, readers will learn surprising but tried-and-true secrets about being an extraordinary boss, about coping with annoying coworkers, and navigating the thorny problems that recur in every workplace.

TIPS FROM BUSINESS WITHOUT THE BULLSH*T:

Long work hours mean less work gets done.

Multiple studies reveal that working 60 rather than 40 hours a week makes you slightly more productive but only for a little while. After about three weeks, people get burned out, get sick and go absent, and start making avoidable errors.

What every boss wants from you.

From your boss's perspective your real job is to make the boss successful. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Why your resume is your enemy.

Only write a resume after you're talking to people inside the hiring firm. Then, customize it to match what you've discovered that they really what.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 17, 2014 – James, author of the “Sales Source” column on Inc.com, outlines the secrets of navigating today’s workforce, starting from the point of view that in the modern work world, everyone is, in effect, a freelancer, their own boss, and should always be looking for their next job. James tackles essential workplace skills and techniques, including how to be a great boss and colleague (and survive bad ones); navigate office politics; ask for a raise; and deal with stress. The author’s pithy and frank style matches his title and his recommendations are similarly to the point, such as his assertion in the chapter on asking for a raise that “nobody cares what you want, need or expect to be paid,” followed by helpful suggestions on how to effectively establish the discrepancy between your value and pay. Equally terse is his counsel on firings and layoffs, which “should be handled like a life threatening operation at a hospital. You want the patient (i.e., your firm) to get through trauma as quickly as possible, not bleed the death of a thousand cuts.” Relevant for leaders or employees of any generation, this is a quick, impactful primer for anyone wanting to be more effective on the job.

As the author, though, I'm probably biased...

Brilliant, sir.
