The curmudgeon’s guide to getting ahead

The curmudgeon’s guide to getting ahead – Society and Culture – AEI

How can young people succeed in workplaces dominated by curmudgeons who are judging their every move? At this AEI book event, bestselling author, social scientist, and self-described curmudgeon Charles Murray will offer indispensable advice for navigating the workplace, getting ahead, and living a fulfilling life. 

Among the tips outlined in Murray’s “The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead: The Dos and Don’ts of Right Behavior, Tough Thinking, Clear Writing, and Living a Good Life” (Crown, April 2014): excise the word “like” from your spoken English, don’t suck up, get real jobs (not internships), and watch “Groundhog Day” repeatedly. For those starting out in their careers — and those who wish to advance more quickly — this event is not to be missed.
Books will be available for purchase, and we invite you to submit questions before the event via Twitter at #AskCurmudgeon. Follow the conversation about the book with #CurmudgeonsGuide.
