In Brazen Careerist, Penelope Trunk gives anything-but-standard business advice that will help new generations of workers fly past their coworkers in the effort to get to the top. Trunk's clear, in-your-face style lends itself perfectly to such advice as using office politics to your advantage or admitting to yourself that you need to change fields because you are not good at what you do. Containing forty-five tips and one rant, Brazen Careerist asserts that you must have a take-charge attitude and Machiavellian ethics in order to rise to the top of the business world.
