Savvy Reviews

"Full of insights and advice, Jane Clarke's highly readable guide to the fast-changing world of work is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to get ahead and climb the corporate ladder." --Rhymer Rigby, author of The Careerist and 28 Business Thinkers Who Changed the World

"...Clarke has produced an easy-to-read manual of helpful ways to understand and maneuver in office politics... A book as helpful for new employees as for experienced managers and entrepreneurs, Savvy is a clear and helpful guide for those who seek to work with others toward the common good." --ForeWord Reviews

"[I]t can be much easier to deal with difficult people if you understand the type of difficult person you're dealing with. Clarke breaks down workplace personalities into four basic types and she does a nice job of describing the particular interests and motivations of each personality type. If you regularly work with groups of your clients' employees, this book might be particularly helpful." --Work Made For Hire
