Defying Gravity: Adventures of a Corporate Entrepr&hellip by Polly Courtney

Having thoroughly enjoyed Golden Handcuffs when I first started work, I was excited to see Polly Courtney once again tackle the corporate world.

The authors obviously have lots of experience working in big businesses, and manage to really bring to life the frustrations as well as the good sides of corporate life. The book is filled with characters and situations which instantly reminded me of my own experiences.
