"Take Control of Your Island Nation" Released

Send Article to a Friend

"Take Control of Your Island Nation" Released -- Needless to say, few of us actually have our own island nations, but with this latest installment in our Take Control series of electronic books, we're branching out into the rough-and-tumble world of business self-help books like "First, Break All The Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently." Written by legendary business consultant Michael Milkem, the hidden force behind NeXT's acquisition of Apple Computer and the AOL/Time Warner merger, "Take Control of Your Island Nation" draws comparisons between orchestrating an overthrow of a corrupt banana republic government and regaining authority in an out-of-control business. You'll learn how to identify and cultivate powerful benefactors before you need their help, how to amass (and conceal) the necessary arsenal of business weapons, and how to time your entry into the heart of the battle. Follow-through is everything, and once you're in control, the ebook provides invaluable advice on managing information sources, rewarding your supporters, and concentrating your power base to repel counter-insurgency. Bonus Section! These days, it's all about image, and although combat fatigues and cigars won't help in you in the boardroom, our tips on appearance will lend credence to your cause when the TV crews come calling. Published 01-Apr-04, "Take Control of Your Island Nation" has 53 pages and costs $5. [ACE]
