Learn How to Hack Your Way Through the Corporate Jungle

Newark, NJ, August 12, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Sick of the grind that is Corporate American? You are not alone, and A Bull in a Glass House can help. For those about to enter the business world, who are tired of the day-to-day struggle, who view every Sunday evening as the threshold of hell, and who really want to change their lives for the better, A Bull in a Glass House will help you find the preparation, guidance, strength, and motivation you need to succeed.

When it comes to a fork in the road, don’t you wish there was a sign telling you which one to take? Author Jose Astorga’s book, A Bull in a Glass House: A Former Marine’s Manifesto on Surviving the Corporate Jungle and Taking Control of Your Life, does just that. It’s a personal compass for achieving both professional and personal success.

Entering the business world is like joining the Marine Corp. You believe that it will be the adventure of a lifetime, one promising exciting undertakings and world travel. But the reality is that you may wind up scrubbing toilets, washing dishes, or doing any number of dirty details that nobody talks about. How can you avoid these pitfalls?

“A Bull in a Glass House is about my experiences in the corporate jungle,” says Astorga. “It is interspersed with stories from my days in boot camp and quotes from actual encounters with management and employees who share the ‘unspoken reality’ of corporate life. It is, at the same time, an account of the failure of leadership and the rules of engagement that can make a leader or employee successful.”

A Bull in Glass House is a call to action for all employees—management or otherwise—to recognize their cartoonish behavior and step beyond themselves. Says Astorga: “I decided that people needed to know what to expect from working for management that values the dollar and personal perks more than the employees they should be serving. Conversely, I thought it important that employees at all levels understand the importance of relationship building, commitment, and passion.”

Astorga shares his thoughts on how non-management employees need to recognize that no one owes them anything. “Nothing is free or easy in life and work is no exception,” he says. “We are where we are as a result of all our past decisions. And we control our destiny.”

In a nutshell, corporate survival is about competence and relationships, just like in the Marines. With A Bull in a Glass House, Astorga shows you how his recipe for survival—Competence, Passion, Relationships—will arm you with the tools you need to go far in the business world.
