Description
Instructive, ruthless, subversive, and entertaining, Power Money Fame Sex reveals the mysteries of office politics and personal posturing. Whether you're gunning for a promotion at work, a trophy wife, the cover of Time, or a very early retirement, you'll find the secrets laid bare in this indispensable guide. What magazines should adorn your coffee table? Why does your boss flaunt a string of identical blonde girlfriends? How can you create a bidding war -- for yourself? Here you'll find clear explanations with illustrations, tips, and quizzes, ready for use Monday morning. Rubin deciphers the strategies of Warren Buffett, Muhammad Ali, Gwyneth Paltrow, Richard Nixon, and Princess Diana. Vital new concepts emerge, such as the principle of disexpectation (think of a CEO in shorts and a T-shirt); the platinum rule (To whom much is given, more is given); and fame frottage (to get fame, rub up against somebody famous). And if you don't have time to study the classics by Plutarch, Sun-tzu, or Casanova, read on for a synthesis of their most important ideas. Once you understand these tactics, it's up to you to decide how to use them or abuse them. Whether the intricate code exposed in Power Money Fame Sex inspires or infuriates you, remember: if these rules aren't working for you, they're working against you.
