Finch is a window washer who finds a book called How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. He uses this book to help him get a job at World Wide Wickets and then uses it to move up in the company. Frump, a co-worker who he left behind when moving up, tries in many different ways to sabotage Finch, who, in the end has to make some choices without his book.
