Mary Ann’s November Recommendation

The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead : Dos and Don’ts of Right Behavior, Tough Thinking, Clear Writing, and Living a Good Life by Charles Murray

Mary Ann says : “A terrific book about how to present yourself in the workplace.
I especially recommend the chapters:
–Excise the word “like” from your spoken English
–Stop “reaching out” and “sharing” and other prohibitions (includes “incentivize” )

It it no nonsense, honest advice for everyone.  Murray says about his advice, “Unfair?  Maybe.  But that won’t keep us from writing you off.”
