<p>In <i>The Way of the Wall Street Warrior: Conquer the Corporate Game Using Tips, Tricks, and Smartcuts,</i> veteran investment banker and executive Dave Liu delivers an acerbic and irreverent insider’s guide to using gamesmanship to get hired, get ahead, and survive on Wall Street, Main Street, or any other ferociously competitive environment.</p> <p>The book discusses tactics for getting your foot in the door and then rising to the top of the food chain. The strategies and techniques discussed within apply whether you spend 18 hours a day in an office right next to your nearest colleague or you’re working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. <p>You’ll learn interview tips, techniques for mastering the social environment at work, and CYA strategies to protect yourself from unexpected setbacks. The author discusses how to read a room, in a virtual meeting or in real life, and why it’s more important than reading the prospectus.
