This useful companion volume to the Naval Institute's Division Officer's Guide and Naval Officer's Guide addresses an aspect of a naval officer's career that is every bit as important: navigating through the rocks and shoals of the Navy's promotion and assignment system. In a fresh and engaging style, Admiral Winnefeld explains how the Navy's assignment and promotion systems work and details how on-the-job performance plays a key role in both. His advice is timeless, and his retirement status allows him to be completely candid. The book draws from many experts and astute observers of the Navy's system for advancing its best officers. For every officer aspiring to get the most out of his or her career, this book is must reading.
