As well, updated statistics and new tools make this book more reader-friendly and useful than ever. As hundreds of thousands of readers already know, "The First 90 Days" is a road map for taking charge quickly and effectively during critical career transition periods - whether you are a first-time manager, a mid-career professional on your way up, or a newly minted CEO.
