"Murphy's Law is alive and well in the workplace, and there's no getting around it - anything that can go wrong, will. Thank God for The Official Rules at Work, offering comic relief and office savvy in the form of a highly quotable compendium of principles, maxims, and instructions for making sense of the place where you work." "Perhaps you'll empathize with the following: Loftus's Observation on Meetings. Meetings that you chair are infinitely better than those that you merely attend. Banks's Revision. If at first you do succeed - try to hide your astonishment. Henry J's Rule. When your work speaks for itself, don't interrupt." "By turns curmudgeonly and wise, witty and thought-provoking - as in the case of the Upward Mobility Rule: "Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted" - these observations are essential for anyone trying to survive the workday with a sense of humor."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
