Expanded from Playboy magazine's "Axioms of the Mafia Manager"

The world's oldest and best-organized conglomerate now reveals management techniques everyone can use. Unlike other guides to business, The Mafia Manager shuns theoretical verbiage to present the philosophy of leadership that founded and captained "The Silent Empire" through centuries of expansion and success. Some sample pearls of wisdom:

-"Be sure you understand what your boss has ordered before you act on his command. What if you whack the wrong guy, or bomb the wrong joint... Learn the art of asking questions."

-"Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer."

-"Don't become involved in any office political battle without first asking yourself, 'What's in it for me?' and then 'What's in it for them?'"

-"If you must lie, be brief."

“Whoever V. is, he offers the sort of advice it is dangerous to refuse.” —Playboy

“A grimly brutally humorous book at the business world. Consider it a merger, or hostile takeover, so to speak, of How to Get Ahead in Business Without Really Trying by The Godfather.” —The Washington Post
