Format: Paperback
This book begins by attempting to make a virtue out of being short and to that extent it mercifully succeeds.
I can't imagine that this can be of any serious assistance to someone looking to make an impact in a new job. It is poorly written both grammatically and structurally. The content is fragmented and reads as though its been thrown together. There is no continuity of theme and the author treats the subject very superficially and with little evidence of research or serious purpose.
There is abundant confusion about the level at which the advice is pitched and it attempts to advise managers, associates and junior staff simultaneously. It even has a couple of pages of a mock 'hard' conversation with an employee having hygiene problems.
One of the strongest messages to come across is the overwhelming need to plan. Its a pity the author didn't follow his own advice. Frankly dreadful when compared to more thoughtful and in depth offerings on this topic.

got this book for my wife who had it recommended to her by someone at work. i picked it up last night and read it through (it's v. short). in a word - hysterical, i laughed out loud more than once - think 'greed is good', big shoulder pads and soulessness. full of contradictions eg. emphasis on how important 'team' play is and yet full of backstabbing advice on how to rise to the top, crushing your fellow 'team' members as you rise. if anyone acted like this guy recommends at my work he/she would be laughed out of the building. as i said, hilarious.

If you approach this book as a spoof, you might at least get a laugh out of it. If you are approaching it with any sort of serious intent I'd advise you to save your money for something more useful, perhaps a chocolate teapot. Having bought and read this ill-informed and badly written nonsense I'm now prompted to check Amazon's refund policy. If there's a trade descriptions clause I might try it since this drivel barely passes as a book.

Superficial 29 May 2005
By A Thinking Person - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm reading a number of books about making a job transition and put this on the bottom of the pile. The few insights offered in the 45 pages of content are far outweighed by high school-style advice on "dealing with brown nosers" and how to have a conversation with an employee who has a "personal hygiene problem." A far superior book is The First 90 Days by Michael Watkins. Or, if you want help in making good professional decisions, see What Do I Do Now? by Charles Foster. Or if you need to know more about what makes a person a success in business, get The 100 Absolutely Unbreakable Laws of Business Success by Brian Tracy.

Don't waste your money............... 23 Mar. 2006
By dfox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was extremely remedial and provided little insight relative to starting a new job. If you're starting a new job and want a roadmap for success I would suggest purchasing a book with some thought provoking substance.

Your First 90 Days in a New Job (How to Make an Impact) 21 Feb. 2007
By R. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent example of why not to buy a book for its title. The prophetic cover photo depicts an empty wasteland. Between the covers lies a stream of consciousness devoid of research, common sense, practical experience and humor. The author must have devoted at least two hours to writing this book. No, it wouldn't have taken that long for a competent typist.

anyone who doesn't already know the extremely rudimentary "information" provided in this very elementary book wouldn't even make it through an interview. i have found few books as disappointing as this one. it's bad enough to make me wonder whether or not it's some kind of a hoax.

Gave this book away...but made some notes first 26 Jun. 2007
By J. Lagasse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read through this book in about an hour or so. I felt most of it would be very remedial for many managers. Since I am not a manager (and not going to be), much of this book's content did not pertain to me.
However, two topics did stand out. The description of the four managerial types (Laid Back, Ready-Fire-Aim, Popular & Hard Nose) with 'handling' suggestions would be useful for anyone at any level. The topic of preparing for the 'miss' (missed sales goal, missed product deliverable, missed date, etc.) was very informative,too. Few of us ever prepare to fail and when it happens to us, we are unprepared to explain it.
I decided NOT to keep this book as part of my permanent library, but I did give this book to someone who coachs people in job search for their personal lending library. It was worth the $8.75 I paid for it because I got free Amazon shipping, but not much more....
