Your average twenty-something would rather choke on Cheetohs and Red Bull than read another lame career guide full of cliched motivational advice and corporate jargon.
That's why strategy consultant (and twenty-something) Jake Greene uses pop culture references from the '80s, '90s, and today to school young professionals in every stage of the business experience, from overcoming post-graduation indecision to solving the puzzling protocols of office politics.
Like a grown-up Ferris Bueller, Jake Greene shares strategies for moving up in the world without becoming a sell-out jerk. With his irreverent humor, original voice, and love of pop culture, Jake Greene will do for business what Greg Behrendt did for relationship advice, Bill Simmons did for the sports world, and Chuck Klosterman did for cultural criticism.
"Finally, a career book with sound advice for Gen Y and millennials." -"The Dallas Morning News"
"Walks readers through all the potholes of office life in a fun and irreverent way that might keep even the hippest (and most resistant) office addition riveted."--The New York Sun
"Drawing on pop culture to school young professionals on job strategy is a stroke of genius, and Jake Greene, a twentysomething consultant, pulls it off in this entertaining and informative paperback."-The Times Colonist (Canada)
"This 'career book for people who would never be caught dead reading a career book' offers hip-sounding yet solid advice for a new generation entering the workplace."--Sacramento Bee
"If you are ambitious, read this book!" -- Jeffrey Fox, author of the bestselling book, "How to Land Your Dream Job
""I wish I'd read this book when I started my career; I would not have frittered away so much time not watching t.v...You should read any book that makes you laugh loud or think twice. This book does both, and more.""
"- Harry Beckwith, author of "You, Inc".
"""Jake Greene... has managed to write one of the best career books of the year. Maybe even ever... As a business author and consultant for almost (gulp) thirty years, I must say it pisses me off for this guy to have written such a wickedly good book his first time
"- Joe Calloway, author of "Work Like You're Showing Off!"
