Harvey Mackay, author of Swim With the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive
Brandon and Seldman tap into the nervous system of corporations and offer fascinating straight talk about a tacit business taboo -- their writing is engaging, entertaining, and easy to relate to.
Deborah Harrington, National Training Director, Citibank North America
They're not kidding when they say "survival;" even Darwin would have approved of this objective look at the precise intricacies of human behavior. If you take office politics seriously, you'll appreciate the weighty analysis Brandon and Seldman bring to even the most obscure workplace scheming. Brandon and Seldman take on the role of corporate anthropologists, dissecting how office politics work and what you can do to master them ethically.
FAST COMPANY'S READER'S CHOICE AWARD REVIEW, FEBRUARY, 2005
"Ever had an idea stolen by someone brash enough to present it as his or her own idea at a VP meeting? Brandon and Seldman offer serious research to substantiate this all-too-prevalent work problem and outline the many ways the politically inept can develop the savvy political instincts we all need to feel valued at our work."
This is a book about what these two mega-powered business consultants call using "high-integrity" politics as a useful change agent...Not incidentally, through case studies, they analyze self-defense strategies to insulate executives from well-known banditos lurking along the trailway to the top.
BUSINESS 2 BUSINESS, JANUARY, 2005
This work will help employees navigate office politics in almost any kind of setting. Corporate consultants Brandon and Seldman offer practical advice, starting with the assumption that engaging in office politics is vital to one's career. Recommended for larger public libraries and all business management collections.

I'm writing to return the Kindle edition of "Survival of the Savvy".
The formatting of this kindle book is a disaster. Large sections of text run down the right half of the page, with no line or paragraph breaks. Headings are just left embedded in the text, running on from the preceding paragraph without a space, let alone a line break.
It's not literally unreadable, but you can't glance at a page and orientate yourself by the headings, as they're buried in the text.
And one chart is missing that is referred to in the text.
I strongly suggest you try to arrange for whoever converted it to Kindle to re-format it."
