    I read this because of a recommendation from a friend. Unfortunately, it's a bit outdated so some of the content was irrelevant. It did help me get in touch with how conflict can actually be a good thing in the business world instead of trying to please everyone. I read this because of a recommendation from a friend.

    11/12/2003 - 6/10 I read Working Without a Net for a business book club at work. I was fearing a very dry, boring, difficult read. It wasn't that bad at all, and was, in fact, an easy read. As for the material itself, there was a lot that I didn't agree with, but there were a couple of good nuggets and the book does make you think. The book seemed like it was written for junior execs (Trump wanna-bes).

I was fearing a very dry, boring, difficult read. It wasn't that bad at all, and was, in fact, an easy read. As for the material itself, there was a lot that I didn't agree with, but there were a couple of good nuggets and the book does make you think. The book seemed like it was written for junior execs (Trump wanna-bes). Business and success in business is a top priority - work should be the utmost importance and you should examine all you do and relate to with an eye on success. He also promotes an up or out culture - employees should always strive to improve and have a CEO position as an end goal. Shechtman also had many poor logical arguments. He sees a lot of things in stark black or white rather than the grays of reality. The book did help me examine a lot of my views on business (our book club discussions helped a lot there as well), and I did like how Shechtman stresses owning your career and preparing for change.

    This book was first recommended to me by Paul Bartlett - great friend and mentor during my tenure at Hallkinion. I still refer this book for situational management.
