No More Mr Nice Guy by James Alston

New Book Jumpstarts a Frank Discussion of the Plight of Black Americans in the Workplace

No More Mr. Nice Guy by James E. Alston is an autobiographical analysis of corporate racism and the need for justice

STONY POINT, N.Y. – In No More Mr. Nice Guy, James E. Alston tells his personal story of life as an African-American in the corporate world, and he uncovers the face of discriminatory practices on the job.

Racism is alive and well in corporate America, suggests author James E. Alston in his blistering book, No More Mr. Nice Guy. Alston analyzes his own 30-year career as an African-American corporate executive, detailing the instances and the impact of evasive, covert and discriminatory practices of managers and co-workers at all levels of employment. The author asserts that although many people believe discrimination affects only impoverished or inner city African-Americans, he shows in this gripping book that middle to upper middle class people are equally affected.

Written in concise, clear prose, No More Mr. Nice Guy chronicles both the rewards and the punishments leveled upon the author at every step of his climb up the corporate ladder. An essential read for business professionals, No More Mr. Nice Guy is an incisive reminder to all readers that discrimination still exists.
