2.0 out of 5 stars Fragments of Brilliance, Nov. 10 2003
This review is from: Big Bing C (Hardcover)
I had high expectations for this book after reading "Throwing the Elephant: Zen and the Art of Managing Up" and "What would Machiavelli Do?". Bing's black humour brought some relief to the entirely too serious business of business. After all, we all need to be able to laugh at ourselves, right?
This book is a collection of snippets on a wide variety of business experiences written between the late eighties and the present day. Given that there is no explicit theme for this book (apart from the madness of business and the people within it), I struggled to finish it.
Although some of the material provides 'applied learning' that will be universally relevant and recognisable, frankly chunks of it just aren't that amusing. Weird - yes, ironic - yes, funny - sorry, no.
