Self-Help Five Star Reviews from Customers and Professional Book Reviewers


5.0 out of 5 stars UMD Students Loved The Presentation and Book!, October 28, 2009
By  E. Arias 
Great Book!
After reading the book it became clear that the steps needed to make the transition are relatively simple, but as Dr. Rodriguez states " It depends how much you want it". It gives a different perspective on how to approach the workforce and truly makes you think "outside the box"

I highly recommend this book to ALL students in a college/university institution because it is never too early to prepare yourself








5.0 out of 5 stars A fine addition to any business collection focusing on management, October 9, 2009
Common sense can get you far, but it isn't the answer to everything. "Not Intuitively Obvious: Transition to the Professional Work Environment..." is a combination memoir and business manual from one J.A. Rodriguez, a senior manager of a highly successful company. Offering perspective from the middle management, he gives readers much advice on honing their craft to inspire the most from their employees. "Not Intuitively Obvious" is a fine addition to any business collection focusing on management.

5.0 out of 5 starsCaution: Insider information to success, October 3, 2009
By  R H
Definitely a good book for those looking for a concise guide book into what makes people successful in the working world. Whether in corp business, non-profit, not-for-profit, private sector, or public sector, this book provides a frame work for those who want to know how to get ahead the right way! It goes into how to positively present yourself in different situations, how to effectively work with coworkers / superiors / customers, and ALOT of other topics that are "not intuitively obvious".

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat tool for college students!, September 15, 2009
By  I. Lopez    
Being a senior in college waiting to graduate in a few months, I'm glad I read this book. It's a very useful tool for anyone trying to find the pathway to success after college. Much of his pointers and tips are things that I would have never thought about. Great read! HIGHLY recommended.

Kirkus Discoveries Book Review

Not Intuitively Obvious

Rodriguez Jr., J.A.
Xlibris (180 pp.)
August 12, 2009
ISBN: 978-1-4415-1542-1
Paper: 978-1-4415-1541-4

The first in the Not Intuitively Obvious series of business books is geared toward helping
prospective candidates transition to a professional work environment--and thrive.

In a crowded business-nonfiction market, how-to resources are as rare as grains of sand on a beach. However, it's rare indeed to find a business guide that combines brevity, precision and practicality, all in under 200 pages. How does someone with little or no experience in a professional setting avoid the pitfalls, booby traps and slippery slopes endemic to that world? For Rodriguez, the answer is simple--listen and learn from those who have succeeded and don't make their mistakes. Not only does the author list these mistakes, he offers the best practices to nip those errors in the bud, saving newbie professionals much angst, missed opportunities and bruised egos. The road begins with developing a foundational mindset. In less adept hands, the definition of this thinking would be punctuated with platitudes and business-speak, but not here. Rodriguez offers readers nuggets of hard-learned lessons and pithy advice that will speed any wannabe professional toward their goal. Not Intuitively Obvious jampacks an incredible amount of good sense, actionable lines of attack and business best practices into a small yet powerful package. This is not just a booklet of bullet points and action items though. Each chapter is written in concise, well-considered prose that does not waste space or the reader's time. The author's suggestions are valuable and relevant to today's workplace environment, and the book provides no-nonsense, no-frills advice designed for quick assimilation and even quicker execution. New entrants into the workforce--and experienced workers hoping for a leg up--will find this an indispensable guide.

Engaging, concisely written and exceedingly accessible.

You hear it from your parents, friends, families, etc..."You must be successful in life to succeed!" Well that's good and dandy. However, how do we show them? This book illustrate how to do so. Awesome pointers and tips. Congrats. J.A. Rodriguez

5.0 out of 5 stars "Works" for me! Pun intended =), July 14, 2009
By Jason C.
This book is one of the greatest advantages to think outside of the box in the business world. Have you ever asked yourself "If I could go back in time, I would..."? Reading this will do that by taking a highly respected business man's experience, putting it in a book, and giving you the knowledge to be an accomplished business man/woman.
I am a former teacher, former Marine, a Mathematics graduate, and a current Naval officer.If I could go back in time, I would have been ahead of the curve with the information I learned from this book; however, Im using it now and it has helped me abundantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A step ahead in the workplace, July 13, 2009
By  Isaac
As a recent college graduate I feel this book is what you need when securing a job. Not only does it provide advice on how to make a smooth transition to the professional work environment, it gives you the tools to be a step ahead of the game. It teaches you to view situations differently and will train you to be successful.
The best part for me is that it is easy to understand and is organized into small chapters which don't overload on information. I wish this book could be turned into a college course for seniors because the information provided is extremely valuable and will be used for the rest of your career.

Perfect graduation gift! This book is an excellent resource and will encourage and empower anyone who has a boss or co-workers. :-) I wish I had this book when I was transitioning into the work place.
