First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. Very Good in Wraps: shows indications of very careful use: just a touch of wear to the extremities; mild rubbing and the faintest toning to the wrapper covers; a very faint dampstain at the upper rear corner of the text block, but this does not penetrade the text block, nor has it imparted any waviness to the pages; binding shows very slight lean, while remaining perfectly secure; text clean. Remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 12mo. 169pp. Mass Market Paperback. In the first chapter of the book, after a few examples of his principle in action, Laurence Peter proposes his Peter principle: "In a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence." He proceeds to take the reader on a journey through the nascent field of "hierarchiology," defining the necessary terms as he goes along. He provides superb insight into why the hierarchies and bureacracies of the world are so inefficient and are becoming increasingly so, why successful people are often unhappy in their jobs and why the most talented people often proceed through their careers without material reward. Peter's observations are funny, but alarmingly true. An excellent resource for the armchair sociologist - highly recommended. N° de réf. du libraire 41555
