"Gotta keep up with the boss"

Tip for success

Here's a tip I heard today that I think is pretty clever: If you find out your boss is reading a certain book (especially if it's not a novel, but some sort of self-improvement or technical type book), stop by the bookstore or your local library and get yourself a copy of the book on your way home. Read that book, learn from it, and if appropriate, bring it to your boss' attention that you are interested in the same subject, have read the book, and think anyone that'd read such a book is simply the greatest. One way to get in or stay in your boss' inner-circle is to think like he or she does. Reading the same book as your boss will give you good insight into your boss, his or her priorities, and whatever specific thing the book teaches.
