"[T]he most timely book of 2014."--Guy Kawasaki
"[T]he most useful, snappy career book I have seen in maybe five years."--Penelope Trunk,
"I started reading it and BOOM I was on the last page! BUSINESS WITHOUT THE BULLSH*T is a concise masterpiece. James' humor and practical wisdom makes every page a joy to read."

--Robert I. Sutton, Stanford Professor, author of The No Asshole Rule, and co-author of Scaling Up Excellence.
"I've read James' compelling articles for the past two decades and this new book is a must-read, sparkling gem."--Gerhard Gschwandtner, publisher of Selling Power magazine
"James, author of the "Sales Source" column on, 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."--Publishers Weekly
"This is a book you should gift to every high school and college graduate. As its title promises, it cuts straight to the habits required for successful business behavior. It points out the many traps that snare business newbies and slow advancement. I wish I'd read a book like this in my early 20s. BWTB is ethical without being preachy, aspirational without being sappy, practical while still crackling with the author's natural wit. 5.0 out of 5 stars."

--Rich Karlgaard, Publisher of Forbes Magazine
"This powerful, practical book gives you proven techniques to get better business results faster than you ever thought possible."--Brian Tracy, author of How the Best Leaders Lead
"Whatever and wherever you are in your career, you will find here a page-turner and a way of turning trials to triumphs."--Linda Richardson, author of Perfect Selling
"Yes, it's true, there's a lot of "bs" in business, but the path through it becomes much clearer by reading the new book by Geoffrey James."--800 CEO Read
