Short Synopsis
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.

Full Synopsis
Post-baby boomer Generations X and Y make up about a third of the entire working populations, yet all of the business advice books on the market seem to be written by (and for) those in the middle of their careers. In terms of business advice, what is out there for the all-important age 18-34 demographic? Brazen Careerist, a debut book by Penelope Trunk, seeks to answer all the questions that Generations X and Y many have.

Containing 45 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.
