This corporate mole’s-eye view of the society in which we all live and toil makes up one of the most entertaining, thought provoking, and just plain funny bodies of work in contemporary letters.

Stanley Bing knows whereof he speaks. He has lived the last two decades working inside a gigantic multinational corporation, kicking and screaming all the way up the ladder. He has seen it all—mergers, acquisitions, layoffs, the death of the three-martini lunch—and has himself been painfully re-engineered a number of times. He has eaten and drunk way too much, stayed in hotels far too good for him, waited for limousines in the pouring rain, and enjoyed it all. Sort of. Most importantly, Bing has seen management at its best and worst and has practiced both as he made the transition from an inexperienced player who hated pompous senior management to a polished strategist who kind of sees its point of view, now and then.

In one essential volume, here is all you need to know to master your career, your life, and when necessary, other weaker life forms.

    " Hey, another book that I was led to through a finance magazine. Bing's earlier writing isn't as funny as his later stuff. Some things are readily applicable to my life, some are not. "
