Yeah...it's true. It's pretty darned hard to be a principled conservative in today's corporate world. In fact, it more or less can get you fired. In nearly 20 years seeking the "perfect-storm" of merit, principle, dedication, faith, fact, truth, right-is-good-and-wrong-is-just-wrong governed by general honesty in the modern day Corporate America I am sorry to break it to you; it just doesn't exist. This book will chronicle real events that have happened in Corporate America; the good, the bad, the downright shocking and frankly the very frightening state of affairs of what the "Everybody-Gets-A-Ribbon" liberal movement and the Political Correctness nonsense have done to business. If you wanted to get work done, promote someone, fire someone, move someone, pray for someone, expose someone and generally cut through the office political goo in the Corporate environment consider yourself forewarned that the rules of the game have changed.dramatically. Kathleen Kelly is a 20-year veteran of the corporate circus holding down very senior and not-so-senior roles at some of the nation's biggest companies (and some of the smallest, never-heard-of, probably-out-of-business-by-now companies too). Born and raised on the east coast, Kelly spends much of her time ducking "emotional, feel-good grenades" hurled by liberal counterparts and spends free time "building consensus" in target practice at the gun range by working on her groupings. She is proud of her plebian "State University Degree" and has sworn to never utter "B-school" in conversation again. The self-described "political freak" and her equally armed spouse live in a great city in the greatest country in the world raising two future "Evil Republicans" who will no doubt skip the corporate circus and follow their parents into Entrepreneurship. In her spare time Kelly is a busy writer, political mouthpiece, and speeding-ticket-collector along with cooking up some legendary desserts.

Tired of swimming with the sharks? Fed up with that big ape down the hall? Real animals can teach us better ways to thrive in the workplace jungle. You’re ambitious and want to get ahead, but what’s the best way to do it? Become the biggest, baddest predator? The proverbial 800-pound gorilla? Or does nature teach you to be more subtle and sophisticated? Richard Conniff, the acclaimed author of The Natural History of the Rich, has survived savage beasts in the workplace jungle, where he hooted and preened in the corner office as a publishing executive. He’s also spent time studying how animals operate in the real jungles of the Amazon and the African bush. What he shows in The Ape in the Corner Office is that nature built you to be nice. Doing favors, grooming coworkers with kind words, building coalitions—these tools for getting ahead come straight from the jungle. The stereotypical Darwinian hard-charger supposedly thinks only about accumulating resources. But highly effective apes know it’s often smarter to give them away. That doesn’t mean it’s a peaceable kingdom out there, however. Conniff shows that you can become more effective by understanding how other species negotiate the tricky balance between conflict and cooperation. Conniff quotes one biologist on a chimpanzee’s obsession with rank: “His attempts to maintain and achieve alpha status are cunning, persistent, energetic, and time-consuming. They affect whom he travels with, whom he grooms, where he glances, how often he scratches, where he goes, what times he gets up in the morning.” Sound familiar? It’s the same behavior you can find written up in any issue of BusinessWeek or The Wall Street Journal. The Ape in the Corner Office connects with the day-to-day of the workplace because it helps explain what people are really concerned about: How come he got the wing chair with the gold trim? How can I survive as that big ape’s subordinate without becoming a spineless yes-man? Why does being a lone wolf mean being a loser? And, yes, why is it that jerks seem to prosper—at least in the short run? Also available as a Random House AudioBook and an eBook
