ABOUT THE BOOK
“Having more than 35 years of higher education experience with 20-plus of those years in administrative roles, this is the first book I have found that addresses as clearly and succinctly the ‘how to’ and ‘why’ of office politics. The author shares his understanding of politics in a helpful, user-friendly manner; one that is mindful of the reader and engages her in a no-nonsense, meaningful way. If you sincerely want to enhance your ‘comfort’ when involved with others, especially in your work setting, The Office Politics Handbook is a must-read.”
—Bernice Bass de Martinez, PhD, California State University, Sacramento
“While many will read this book with the goal of career advancement, the principles in The Office Politics Handbook apply to countless other social situations. I read this book for professional development, [but] I quickly realized that Godwin’s advice was extremely helpful in all relationships, from dealing with managers and coworkers to dealing with my spouse and family members.”
—Amanda Benson, Criminal defense attorney
