Feeling enslaved by pointless meetings, overflowing "in" boxes, and endless phone calls? Shackled by mindless busywork and jealous colleagues that keep you from landing the corner office and the recognition you deserve? If so, now is the time to break free from the chains of job slavery and whip your career into submission!

In this frank and witty rescue manual, Karen Salmansohn--the highly successful, award-winning advertising veteran of corporate wars and author of the wildly acclaimed bestseller How to Succeed in Business Without a Penis--is on a mission to liberate you.  For everyone who is into S&M (Success and Money, that is), Whip Your Career Into Submission offers an easy-to-follow, 30-day plan for taking control of your career--instead of letting circumstances take control of you.  

Salmansohn's simple strategies and profound wisdom illustrate important guiding principles for action: You must make sure your long-term goal plays the dominant role in your career, you must not be a slave to your past, and you must find pleasure in your pain--and know that pain is a good teacher.

With daily Tips for Cracking Whips and Master Mantras that keep you focused on your career progress, Whip Your Career Into Submission shows you how to beat all of your negative thoughts instead of letting them beat you so that you can attain the promotions and raises you dream of.  Salmansohn's instructive, humorous suggestions show you how to whip your fear, cynicism, regret, impatience, jealousy, and a host of other on-job vices into submission, and even turn them into productive forces that can help you along your career path.

Now is the time to start cracking that career whip--don't let another frustrating work day go by! With its hilarious, sexy, and highly practical approach, Whip Your Career Into Submission is the ultimate solution for everyone who wants to end up on top.
