Some people seem to be just great at their job. They glide effortlessly onwards and upwards through all the politics, the back stabbing, the system, and the nonsense that goes on. They always seem to say and do the right thing. Everybody likes them. They get pay rises and promotion. They get on with the boss. And somehow, they do all these without breaking much of a sweat or seeming to put in excess effort.

Is there something they do that we don't? Is it a natural ability or something we could all learn? The answer is a most definite and resounding yes. They know the 'Rules of Work'. These rules are about how you are seen to be doing your job - brilliantly and efficiently. They are about how you appear to others - successful and confident.

The Rules of Work takes simple information about how people relate to each other in a completely artificial environment - the workplace - and uses it to promote your rise up the ladder of success. This is the book for you if you want to get on and up without becoming ruthless or unpleasant. This is the book for you if you want to be successful and still be able to live with yourself, and be regarded as a thoroughly decent person by your colleagues and bosses.
