Dr Seedy Drammeh, Human Resource Manager of the Gambia Revenue Authority (GRA), has published two more books in his name.

The books, entitled Guide to Success and Office Politics and How to Survive It, were published on Friday 27 September 2012.

The two books have brought the total number of books authored by Dr Drammeh to seven.

His previous five books are Guide to Productive Office Work, Job Seekers Hand Booklet, Meet me in Banjul, Tribute to Momodou Kaba Tambajang and Inter-service Relations in The Gambia.

Speaking to The Point yesterday, Dr Drammeh, author of the books - Guide to Success and Office Politics and How to Survive It, said the books target three main key players: the job seekers, employers and employees.

According to him, he wrote the books as part of his contribution to national development.

“I believe knowledge has to be shared and I encourage all, especially employers and employees, to endeavour to read the books,” he said.

Guide to Success is intended for present and future generations who would want to become successful and contribute their quota to national development, said the author.

The other book, Office Politics and How to Survive It, seeks to encourage workers, especially at the junior level, to know how to cope with the challenges they face in their workplaces and how to overcome them.

It also seeks to help bosses to better manage their workers thus avoid playing foul games on them.

Issues such as nepotism in workplaces, bad bosses, etc, were all highlighted in Office Politics and How to Survive It.

The book calls for a mutual respect between bosses and their subordinates at workplaces to ensure maximum success at work.

The books can be bought from the author, Dr Drammeh, or at Timbooktoo Bookshop on Garba Jahumpa Road, Bakau Newtown.
