This book covers a form of rote learning that involves writing down an abbreviated list of steps required to complete a process in the workplace – to use as a quick reference until your memory kicks in. The book title is a reference to people who perpetuate the belief that taking notes exposes a human weakness. These people have a sort of tough-guy attitude that can make an employee feel uncomfortable about jotting something down to remember it – even though taking notes is one of the most powerful learning techniques available (especially in a pinch or on short notice).
If you are having problems in the workplace and have been accused of being incompetent, this book can assist. If you would like to move to another job, but need to keep the one you are in until you make your move – these techniques can help you keep your job until it’s time to escape.
The author has been using these methods for decades – working through the details of day jobs – surviving recessions – and has never experienced a job loss that was not of his choosing.
This book is not for people with photographic (eidetic) memories.
A note about the new Get Sneaky book series: To Get Sneaky is not about being underhanded. Rather, it’s about sneaking up on your competitors via creativity, unconventional techniques, and managerial elbow grease.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I pretty much cut to the chase, and enjoy doing it.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Never quit. Authors who quit never succeed. 2 hours a day of any sort of writing work eventually pays off.
