For some people, work’s a breeze: they glide effortlessly through all the office politics and back stabbing, always saying and doing the right thing, getting raises, getting promotions, getting results. What do they know that everyone else doesn’t? The rules of work. Those rules are surprisingly easy to learn — and once you know them, they’re equally easy to live by. Now, Richard Templar’s brought them all together in one place: the quick, irreverent The Rules of Work: A Definitive Guide to Personal Success. Templar doesn’t just show you how to LOOK more effective: he shows you how to BE more effective in today’s workplace environments. Discover how to get ahead without compromising your principles; how to project the air of confidence and energy that wins respect; how to carve out a powerful niche for yourself; how to handle conflict without alienating the warriors; how to read your corporate culture; when to speak and when to remain silent; when to stay late and when to leave early; and how to capitalize on the key moments that can supercharge your career.

About The Author

Richard Templar is the pen name of a British author who has written several self-development books. He shares his “path to success” in a series of books, in which 100 simple “Rules” are presented to achieve success: be it in business, money, or life in general. Rules are typically presented on two pages, making the books easy to read, and suitable for dipping into at random.

The books contain the distinctive use of British English. One reviewer writes that Templar’s style is in neither of the “iron fisted” or “fuzzy warm” camps prevalent in American management books, but mixes both.

    Good book
    This book is like the Christian bible. While the bible talks about everything under the sun, this book talks about being smart in the office. It gives a lot of vital survival tips for everyone in the workforce. If you follow every rule in this book diligently, there’s no way for failure. There is only one way and that is going up. This book provides revelation to those who are not aware of the office politics aka The Game. We’re being watched and judged by everything that we say or do, no matter where we are. As long as we’re in an office, we have to play by the rules of work. The book is easy to read but the rules are hard to follow. The reason is simply because we’re human. Read the book and judge for yourself.
