<b>The traits that make Sam Zell one of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs also make him one of the most surprising, enigmatic, and entertaining mavericks in American business. </b><br />  <br /> Self-made billionaire Sam Zell consistently sees what others don’t. From finding a market for overpriced <i>Playboy</i> magazines among his junior high classmates, to buying real estate on the cheap after a market crash, to investing in often unglamorous industries with long-term value, Zell acts boldly on supply and demand trends to grab the first-mover advantage. And he can find opportunity virtually anywhere—from an arcane piece of legislation to a desert meeting in Abu Dhabi. <br /><br /> “If everyone is going left, look right,” Zell often says. To him, conventional wisdom is nothing but a reference point. Year after year, deal after deal, he shuts out the noise of the crowd, gathers as much information as possible, then trusts his own instincts. He credits much of his independent thinking to his parents, who were Jewish refugees from World War II. <br /><br /> Talk to any two people and you might get wild swings in their descriptions of Zell. A media firestorm ensued when the Tribune Company went into bankruptcy a year after he agreed to steward the enterprise. At the same time, his razor-sharp instincts are legendary on Wall Street, and he has sponsored over a dozen IPOs.  He’s known as the Grave Dancer for his strategy of targeting troubled assets, yet he’s created thousands of jobs. Within his own organization, he has an inordinate number of employees at every level who are fiercely loyal and have worked for him for decades. <br /><br /> Zell’s got a big personality; he is often contrarian, blunt, and irreverent, and always curious and hardworking. This is the guy who started wearing jeans to work in the 1960s, when offices were a sea of gray suits. He’s the guy who told <i>The</i> <i>Wall Street Journal</i> in 1985, “If it ain’t fun, we don’t do it.” He rides motorcycles with his friends, the Zell’s Angels, around the world and he keeps ducks on the deck outside his office. <br /><br /> As he writes: “I simply don’t buy into many of the made-up rules of social convention. The bottom line is: If you’re really good at what you do, you have the freedom to be who you really are.”<br /><br /> <i>Am I Being Too Subtle?</i>—a reference to Zell’s favorite way to underscore a point—takes readers on a ride across his business terrain, sharing with honesty and humor stories of the times he got it right, when he didn’t, and most important, what he learned in the process.  <br /><br /> This is an indispensable guide for the next generation of disrupters, entrepreneurs, and investors.

Have you ever wondered why some people are able to move up the corporate ladder with ease and others languish in the pool of workers who can’t seem to get ahead? Robert T. Gofourth unlocks the mystery of corporate success in this book full of entertaining stories, confessions of his own mistakes and practical tips of what to do to succeed within the corporate environment.<br />You can let go of any misconception of succeeding through hard work and dedication. Being recognized for your accomplishments and effortlessly rising to the top of the competitive corporate environment simply will not happen. Reading this book is like opening up the box where stories of success are hidden. It is not a motivational book with lots of encouragement and positive thinking.<br />This book is a pragmatic collection of actual stories based on the author’s experience. In most cases the name of the person in the story has been changed. What’s important for you to grasp is these stories represent real life in the corporate world.<br />You will probably recognize yourself, or people you know, in some of the stories. At the end of each section is a set of “Do’s and Don’ts” you can use as a checklist in your corporate rise through the ranks. Near the end of the book, Gofourth summarizes his management philosophy with three super simple tools he finds super effective in managing his team. He is convinced if you follow the three simple philosophies it will absolutely help you move to the next level quicker.
