Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it comes to business advice that gets results, nobody can touch Harvey Mackay. Founder and CEO of the phenomenally successful Mackay Envelope Corporation and author of the bestselling Swim with the Sharks without Being Eaten Alive, Mackay is the quintessential self-made man who reached the top through brain power, determination, and creativity--literally "pushing the envelope" all the way to the top. Now in this new book, Mackay shares his wit and savvy, his common and not-so common sense, with everyone who wants to succeed . . . at anything.

Humor. Honesty. Fairness. The ability to get others to see your vision. Judgment. Guts. Respect for the bottom line--and all the lines that lead to it. These are the values that have made Harvey Mackay the business and civic leader he is today. A born communicator, Mackay distills the lessons of his forty years in business into pithy, punchy chapters that cut to the heart of everyday problems and situations. In Pushing the Envelope, you'll learn

- The art of negotiating the sweetest deals

- The essential qualities all leaders have in common--and some they don't

- Failsafe ways to get your raise

- The secrets to achievement--business titans share

- How to use laughter as a productivity tool

- The importance of a total balance between work and family

- And much more!

Both practical and entertaining, charged throughout with Harvey Mackay's inimitable style, humor, and off-beat wisdom, Pushing the Envelope puts the fun, the creativity, and the challenge back in business. Whether you're at the top of your company or determined to get there, this is one business book you can't afford to miss.
